How SERVPRO of Bellflower remove smoke and soot from your home after a fire.

Kitchen fire Something left on top of stove caught fire

When a fire occurs there are residues that are left behind called soot. A lot of the time these fires are not that big, but the smoke and soot that they leave behind is a big job.

What is smoke and soot? Smoke is the cloud that carries the soot. Soot is the fine particle dust that is left behind. Soot clings on to wall, ceilings and building contents. Its is very difficult to remove and sometimes even impossible.

SERVPRO of Bellflower uses industrial chemicals produced specially for those types of jobs, along with specialized equipment.

We use dry sponges to remove soot. When it is a smaller job it where there isn’t a lot of visible soot, it is fairly easy to remove. Now, when it is on the bigger side, we can remove a lot of the soot but not completely. Like I said some soot is impossible to be removed. When we are done, we have to wipe walls and ceilings with a solution called “Wall and all”. When done with that we wipe with another solution to wipe down the walls and ceiling from that chemical so no chemicals are left on walls or ceilings.

Personal contents like big furniture are cleaned and wiped down on site and stored in onsite storage units if needed to be stores for some days. Smaller contents are packed safely in boxes and brought back to our facility to be cleaned and clothes are washed and dry-cleaned.

When everything is washed, cleaned, and wiped down, everything is put back to its place.

We take care of your stuff like if it was ours.
