Fire damage cleaners in Geelong

December 8, 2015

A fire has the ability to completely destroy a property in a matter of minutes. But even if a fire in the home has not reached a level of ferocity to destroy a home, you may still be faced with substantial damage to property.

Smoke damage is extremely invasive and difficult to clean and where you have had a fire you will almost certainly have experienced a level of smoke damage. Smoke damage can cause black marks and serious discolouration on the walls and ceilings of your home. These marks can be caused by two things. The first is soot, which is the residue left by smoke. The second is charring. Charring is where the paint and timber has been burnt to the point where it is blackened.

Soot needs to be removed with a harsh cleaner. For this reason alone, it is best to use the services of your Geelong fire damage cleaners to effectively remove soot from your home. If used without proper precautions, the cleaner can cause severe skin and eye irritation. The cleaning process may need to be undertaken a number of times to remove all of the soot and black marks from walls and ceilings.

Charring cannot be washed or cleaned away. Whether it is paint or another surface, charring has caused irreparable damage to the affected surface.
