SERVPRO technicians can perform fire and soot removal in your San Antonio home and lessen the need for replacing items.

Even when articles and building materials in a bedroom do not receive charring from a fire, they can still require disposal if the soot or smoke damage cannot get removed. Worse, self-cleaning methods using liquid solutions increase the cost by driving soot into walls and other surfaces. It is a smart move to bring in a professional restoration services company to remove the smoke damage and after-effects of the fire. SERVPRO encourages parents to provide their children with useful fire safety information and aids.

Can Bedding Get Cleaned After a Fire and Soot Removal? 

This bedroom had a fire in San Antonio that had light charring and needed soot removal. SERVPRO technicians approach every cleanup carefully with actions such as:

  • Testing the smoke residues to determine the type 
  • Choosing the correct cleaning agent by the surface being cleaned
  • Inspect and cleaning of washable fabrics exposed to soot

The mattress received no effects from the fire and remained in place during the mitigation, although covered in plastic to stop any cross-contamination from airborne particulate during the cleanup.

As long as the bedding is washable, the techs can use the Esporta Washing System to remove all traces of soot, smoke odors, dirt, and dust after a single wash in this powerful piece of equipment.

During the fire, the first responders stacked the articles in the room in a corner. SERVPRO techs went through the items one by one to determine the restoration potential through various cleaning methods. An outside cleaning station handles that task as things get taken out of the job site area. This attention to detail by the techs enables the homeowner to realize the savings by not having to replace so many possessions post-fire.

SERVPRO of Braun Station at (210) 267-2159 has the techniques and equipment to handle damage from fire and soot removal in your home.
