Risks of DIY Carpet Soot Removal in Your Red Wing Home

It is a common belief that much of the cleaning and restoration work that your Red Wing home needs after a disaster is something that homeowners can reasonably handle on their own. However, without the right training and expertise to address specific concerns present after incidents like fires, you can find your efforts causing greater harm to your home than help. With the fast response, we can provide our customers immediately following disasters and emergencies that threaten their home; we can offer effective mitigation, cleaning, and restoration services that your home needs to return to preloss condition.

Soot can be one of the most challenging fire damage effects in your Red Wing property for even our trained and IICRC restoration technicians. With soot particulates and residue coming to rest on a variety of surfaces and materials, various techniques are necessary to remove them without causing further damage and staining to the area that could otherwise get preserved. Our SERVPRO team arrives to fire damage incidents with the tools and equipment necessary to clean up soot effects throughout your property.

Soot is a very damaging presence that can spread quickly throughout your property during and following a fire. Cleaning up this residue begins with high powered vacuums held above the affected surfaces to pull loose particulates, which can make up the bulk of this damage, from the damaged area. Carpets that do not get this preliminary removal of soot from the top of the fibers in the flooring can become susceptible to staining and irreparable aesthetic damage.

Our SERVPRO technicians have premier carpet cleaning solutions and can work to remove the heaviest concentrations of soot residue before these efforts begin.

There are many concerns throughout your home after a fire, but trying to take care of them on your own can cause more damage than you might expect. You can always depend on the fast response and expertise of our SERVPRO of Cannon Valley restoration technicians. Give us a call anytime disaster strikes at (507) 334-2565.
