The Importance of Soot & Smoke Odor Removal After a House Fire in Yankton, SD

June 4th, 2018 · No Comments


When fire ravages your home, you may not be thinking past the structural damage the flames have caused. When it comes to fire damage cleanup, the smoke and soot can be just as damaging, if not more, than the flames themselves. ServiceMaster Clean of Southeast South Dakota helps with the restoration of your home after the flames have been doused with professional soot removal and smoke odor removal.


Smoke Odor Removal


After the fire is out and the building is safe to enter to begin fire damage remediation, the assessment of the structural damage can be done. What about the areas and items in the home not directly affected by the flames? They’ll have smoke damage, and if not properly removed, the smoke will continue to cause damage. We’re trained in smoke odor removal and can restore the items in your home, saving you thousands in replacement costs.


Soot Removal


Soot is a complex compound byproduct of the fire and can have many different caustic chemicals in its molecular makeup. If soot isn’t promptly removed by properly trained fire damage technicians, it’ll continue to damage any and every item it has come into contact with. Our restoration process for soot removal is tailored to the specific items in your home and based on the type of fire that burned.


HVAC Cleaning


Smoke is such a tiny particulate that thousands of molecules can rest on the head of a pin. It can travel an amazing distance, squeezing through the smallest of holes in your home. It’s no surprise that once it gets in your HVAC system you run the risk of smelling an unpleasant reminder of your house fire every time you use your heating or central air. We can clean and deodorize your HVAC system so you breathe easier.


If your home in Yankton, SD has been affected by a fire, don’t hesitate to contact us at (605) 665-7080 anytime day or night. Our fire damage restoration technicians can be on the scene quickly to help.
