Soot Damage Repair Services in Cincinnati, Ohio

Soot damage is traditionally attributed to the aftermath of a house fire or the results of a furnace or boiler malfunction (also known as a puff back). Contact Teasdale Fenton Restoration to restore your property from soot damages after the fire department extinguishes the fire. We begin cleanup by removing as much dry soot as possible using a HEPA vacuum cleaner and/or a lambswool duster.

The oily and gaseous properties of soot, make it one of the most difficult substances to clean-up, especially if not addressed in a timely matter. In addition to coating surfaces with an oily and gaseous (carbon) residue, soot can permeate into just about every nook and cranny in your home or office, leaving behind a horrible smell that can’t be removed by conventional cleaning methods. We serve customers throughout Greater Cincinnati, including Madeira, Montgomery, and Mason.

Repairing Soot Damage

Reasons to Repair Soot Damage ASAP

Since soot is a byproduct of the combustion process, its black and powdery form can quickly turn into a sticky and gaseous form - easily circulating throughout your entire building. That’s why it’s important to react quickly! The sticky attribute of soot may cause the byproduct to cling to many unwanted areas throughout your building, such as wall corners and exhaust pipes.

Your best chance at minimizing the damage to your home is to act as ASAP, as smoke and soot can be absorbed by almost all of your furniture and contents, especially the extremely porous materials or surfaces, as they may continue to absorb odors until the soot is removed.

Soot Damage Repairs Offered by Teasdale Fenton Restoration

At the beginning of the restoration process, we will perform a thorough inspection of the home, assessing the damage, and determining which cleaners or solvents are most appropriate. In some instances, due to the severity of the soot damage or the nature of the item with the damage, it may not be possible to remove the sooty residue and the item will have to be discarded; just to ensure you, we always check with the property owner before discarding any soot-damaged contents.

Soot Handled by Teasdale Fenton Restoration

Teasdale Removes Both Dry & Oily Soot

There are usually two types of soot: dry and oily.

A quick test to determine which type of soot you’re faced with is to simply run your finger across a soot-covered surface. If it smears, the soot is oily.

Oily soot is generally cleaned with degreasing agents. Dry soot can be cleaned with dry cleaning sponges. Sometimes soot will be dry in one room, but oily in another. It all depends on the types of materials that burned.
