How Do You Remove Soot?

12/25/2020 (Permalink)

Smoke from a Chimney Soot problems happen in Sunny Florida, not just up north in the cold and snow :-)

Soot is one of the most dangerous of all hazards that you can face in the aftermath of a fire. Because it can contain any number of toxins, breathing in even the smallest amount of soot can cause serious health effects.

It can build up on all sorts of surfaces and create noxious odors, which can make it a challenge to clean.

Removing soot is a delicate process that requires proper safety precautions, specialized equipment and professional training.

That’s why it’s recommended that you leave this job to the professionals at SERVPRO of Fort Lauderdale North

The longer soot is allowed to remain on a surface the more dangerous it is, so it needs to be addressed as quickly as possible.

It’s also important to ensure that it is cleaned properly so that it doesn’t make the damage any worse.
