The Acidic Nature of Smoke Damage and Soot Damage, Require Special Cleanup procedures.After a fire, soot damage is very problematic. Soot can be a black flaky or oily or powdery substance which forms from incomplete combustion. Fine carbonized compounds cling to surfaces in your home like ceilings and walls, plus your possessions.Soot is difficult to remove from any surface, and sometimes it is not possible to restore the surface to its pre-fire condition. There are two types of sediment you can find after soot damages your home – oily and dry. A quick check you can do to discover the type of residue you have is just to run your finger over a soot-covered surface. It is oily residue if it smears. Try not to make a mess. Better yet, leave it to us to inspect and clean. Heat from the fire pushes the soot and can cover everything in its way. Smoke looks for a kind of equilibrium and travels until its energy is used and it goes to cooler temperatures. When tested, soot can always be found on the acidic side of the pH scale. Acidic materials are destructive to a majority of elements found in nature. Over time, they keep degrading materials by oxidation which leads to discoloration, etching, corrosion or pitting. Stains over metals can yellow and soften.  Our expertise and "restore" versus "replace" mentality can help you save money while preserving precious keepsakes that can't be replaced. We pretest your belongings to determine what items they can restore to pre-fire condition.  Call SERVPRO of Blackwood / Gloucester Township at 856-227-7800 anytime, day or night. SERVPRO of Blackwood NJ Gloucester Township NJ, is a Veteran Owned and Operated Small Business.
