Cleaning Soot from the Belongings of Your Manhattan Apartment

9/13/2019 (Permalink)

Apartment building, the top floor burned. Bottom two floors tarped off, with a dumpster outside the building. Fire damage will take over your Manhattan apartment home, let us help you.

Let SERVPRO clean soot from your Manhattan Items.

We have multiple strategies that exist to reduce the presence of soot and smoke residues on surfaces and the contents of your Manhattan apartment. With a confined space that many property owners must contend with, nearly all of your belongings can become affected by even a smaller-scale fire loss incident within the apartment. While many residents lack the training and skill to address these concerns on their own, more and more have trusted in the experience and equipment of our SERVPRO brand to help during the crisis. 

Content management is a vital component of our recovery of fire damage in Manhattan apartments like yours. We understand how concentrated effects can become, especially in units that do not have an open floor plan, and we must work quickly to face these immediate effects to safely remove affected and damaged possessions. We can move these items to our nearby facility for focused cleaning and deodorization, which is necessary when contending with soot and smoke residues. 

Not all cleaning practices work the same for every item damaged by the recent fire loss in your apartment. For hard materials that are not compromised by submersion in a solution, the ideal practice for addressing soot buildup is an immersion practice. Most often, this involves the use of our ultrasonic tank, which is full of a powerful cleaning product. Items get entirely submerged in this solution, and vibration from sound waves generate microscopic bubbles that burst creating an action that breaks up the soiling and leave the surface of the material clean and vibrant. 

This equipment in our SERVPRO facility is often the only cleaning that many of the damaged items removed from your apartment require before they get safely stored until they can get returned to your residence. Ultrasonic tanks are ideal for ceramics, silverware, glass, and other hard items that can be costly to replace or resurface. 

Removing soot and smoke residues can be a challenge for even our experienced SERVPRO of Upper West Side professionals at times. With our advanced equipment and our line of powerful cleaning and deodorization products, we can make all fire loss incidents “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime that disaster strikes at (917) 498-1362.
