Soot Damage Removal in White Plains Homes
Soot can be one of the larger obstacles for restoration professionals, primarily because of the finite timeline to remove these soils before irreparable harm results. We carefully inspect impacted materials for the type of smoke damage and determine a suitable restoration solution, such as using solvents or alkaline detergents to neutralize corrosivity and wipe away stubborn soils.
Smoke Remediation Includes Odor Removal
Remediating smoke damage can occur in many ways, and one of the most needed approaches involves removing harsh odors after extinguishment. Burning smells can overwhelm areas of the house, requiring SERVPRO professionals to utilize our deodorization equipment and chemical agents to help.

Our Fire Restoration Process

Step 1: Emergency Contact
We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. When you call, one of our representatives will ask a series of questions about the fire damage to your home or business. This information helps us respond immediately with all the needed equipment and resources.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the fire and smoke damage by examining the affected areas and by testing the adjoining rooms for smoke and soot damage. An accurate assessment is crucial to the planning process.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
In many fire damage cases, it’s necessary to board up missing windows and walls and to place tarps on a damaged roof. This helps to maintain security and to protect against further damage.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
We use specialized equipment and techniques to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the process or restoring your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve relatively minor repairs, such as replacing drywall and painting, or it could include significant reconstruction of entire rooms.
