Soot on walls after a kitchen fire Soot covering the walls in a home after a kitchen fire in Newberry, SC

No matter the size of a house fire, the soot residue can be visible to every inch of your home. Depending on the depth of the fire, no matter what you do to clean this on your own can be overwhelming. It is best to leave this to the professionals of SERVPRO. Soot, ash and char particles along with invisible chemical compounds can linger in your home from weeks to years!

Soot residue untreated or cleaned improperly can be inhaled in the lungs. Toxic particles can cause bronchitis, breathing issues and respiratory issues if not treated correctly. You can become nose blind to the smell but trust the professionals it is still there, and it is dangerous.

If you experience a house fire (even a small one) call the experts of SERVPRO of Newberry and Laurens Counties. We are trained in the soot removal and bringing your personal  items back to pre-fire conditions.
