Soot and Smoke Damage Cleaning
Soot damage is typically caused by furnace malfunctions, pellet and wood stove blockages, and fireplace flue blockages. When these equipment malfunctions occur, the smoke/soot aerosols become airborne and deposit on building surfaces and contents. Damage from soot and smoke is determined by the length and severity of the occurrence and can be contained to one area or contaminate an entire building and its contents.
In most cases, soot damage to a building and its contents can be repaired on-site, with the exception of clothing (this is outsourced to garment specialists). Advanced Cleaning & Restoration’s technicians are trained and certified with the IICRC in soot and smoke removal.
