Are Odors Removed During Fire Damage Cleanup of Des Moines Homes?    

One of the finishing steps of fire restoration is removing harsh odors present in the environment. We also must overcome trapped smells in porous materials like drywall and flooring. We have several strategies and products to neutralize odors on contact and sealing materials to prevent recurrences of smoke odors after resurfacing occurs.   

How Important is Soot Cleaning in Des Moines? 

Soot is one of the most formidable obstacles for fire restoration technicians like ours. While we have multiple products and equipment designed to overcome these soil deposits on surfaces and particles circulating in the environment, we must act quickly to ensure that the damage does not increase before regulating the effects on underlying substrates and the atmosphere.
