Soot Removal Options for Gatlinburg Homes

Soot is a common fire loss effect, but one that has many different compositions. Dry soot and smoke damage can often be easier to remove with chem sponges and vacuums. Wet smoke damage creates thicker residues that stay adhered to surfaces and contents and require solvents and wet cleaning approaches to remove if it is possible.

Removing Malodors from Gatlinburg Properties After a Fire 

Smoke odors are a challenge for remediators and restoration professionals because of how quickly they can spread in a damaged area. Partial combustion does more than creating soot damage but also leaves noxious malodors that require our inventory of industry-leading deodorization equipment to resolve and neutralize.
