duct vent debris and fire damage on roof SERVPRO provides fire damage cleanup for Palm Beach properties. We clean the structure, HVAC system, and the contents.

We have surface and environmental cleaning approaches to preserve damaged Palm Beach residences.

Aging large homes can have many situations that allow for fire damage, from faulty wiring to kitchen flare-ups. When soot damage exists after these emergencies, our professionals quickly help with house fire clean-up.

Reducing the Circulation of Airborne Soot Particles

Creating a safer environment is vital to restoring fire damage in Palm Beach properties as soon as possible. Partially combusted materials produce soot and smoke particles that become aerosolized and move rapidly throughout the affected space. HEPA 500 air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators help trap harsh contaminants and assist in deodorization.

Treating Surfaces with Wet and Dry-Cleaning Approaches

Removing soot particles from surfaces involves a combination of cleaning approaches depending on the affected material and the composition of the soot damage. When surface cleaning with products is not effective, we can also try:

  • Dry ice pellet blasting
  • Abrasive cleaning
  • Controlled demolition

Tracking Soot Migration Through the HVAC System

Soot can be an overwhelming presence when it is noticeable and accessible, but this can be an even more challenging hurdle when the migration of these effects deposit soot in harder-to-reach areas. Returns and vents can pull in soot and smoke particles to move these soils to several rooms of the house and leave the HVAC system coated as well. Our air duct cleaning team can work with HEPA vacuums and drill-powered brushes to clean affected areas. This process also improves IAQ indoor air quality.

Cleaning up after fire damage can often be a large undertaking and one of the greater restoration obstacles for experienced professionals like ours. With fast-spreading fire effects like odors, soot, and similar threats, the fast response of our SERVPRO of Central Palm Beach team is invaluable. We are ready to help 24/7 at (561) 588-9777.
