Smoke and soot can travel and penetrate other rooms affecting paint, carpet, upholstery, drapes, clothing and other belongings. Ventilation of the fire scene or debris removal is an effective first step to clean up after a fire. Thorough cleaning and neutralizing of both the deposits and odors are required to avoid any permanent damage. Different types of fires require different cleaning techniques.
Typically, high-oxygen fires will result in dry dusty soot, whereas slow-burning, low-oxygen fires will result in greasy wet deposits that easily smear. The cleaning regimen must take into account these variations. The trained personnel at McMahon's Cleaning and Restoration, LLC are experienced in remediating the smoke and soot quickly and efficiently. Our goal is to get you back in your home with your belongings and only a distant memory of the damages. We'll Work With You and Your Insurance Company to cover costs and expedite the process.
HVAC interior surfaces have the potential to collect particulate, smoke, moisture, gaseous emissions and other contaminants as the result of a fire or smoke. This can occur even while the HVAC system is in a de-energized (non-operational) state. Deposits of these foreign materials may alter the HVAC system’s components, potentially affecting system performance, corrosion resistance, and the general hygiene of the HVAC interior surfaces. A standardized evaluation of the HVAC interior surface conditions is necessary to determine when HVAC interior surfaces have been impacted by a fire-related particles.
