Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Content Soot Removal

This is jewelry covered in soot from the wildfires in Santa Rosa, CA. Notice the extent of the damage; if the jewelry had not been properly restored in a timely manner they may not have been salvageable. 

Immediately after a fire, soot residue settles onto the property. Discoloration of porous materials is permanent, but other surfaces may be properly cleaned to remove the discoloration. Acidic soot begins staining other surfaces if not treated quickly.

If left untreated, within weeks the restoration process will take longer and possibly cost more.  Prolonged soot exposure permanently harms all surfaces and embeds in fibers. Replacement of property may be the only option at this point. The structure may continue deteriorating if not properly restored.
