ServiceMaster Elite is your Smoke and Soot Damage Restoration Expert

ServiceMaster Elite technicians are IICRC certified in Fire Damage Restoration and have the expert knowledge to guide you through the fire damage restoration process. Our technicians will thoroughly inspect your property and identify areas where soot is present, even if not visible to the untrained eye.

Armed with state-of-the-art tools such as soot sponges, borescopes, hydroxyl and ozone; ServiceMaster Elite technicians will be able to detect and remove soot before it causes damage to your property. We begin by dry soot cleaning surfaces with soot sponges or HEPA vacuums to remove as much soot from the surface as possible. Following the dry soot cleaning we will clean surfaces with a specialty cleaning agent that breaks down and removes soot from all surfaces. The final step is a detail dry cleaning to ensure 100% of the soot is removed from all surfaces.

After a detailed cleaning specialty deodorization processes including air scrubbing, hydroxyl treatment or thermal fogging may assist in removing any odors left behind from the soot damage. It is important to know that soot odor is usually caused by a source of odor such as a fire damage or smoke damage. If there are any remaining odors, ServiceMaster Elite technicians will thoroughly inspect the property to identify the sources of odor and will guarantee a smoke and odor free property.

In some cases, soot leaves behind permanent stains that need to be sealed with an odor and stain blocker and may need to be followed up with fresh paint. Our Elite Construction Team can assist you in this process and provide guidance to ensure your property is smoke and soot free.
