Elk Township House Fire

We were contacted after our customer had a small fire in their basement. Fine soot was throughout the 95% finished basement. This picture is of the unfinished storage room were many soot webs formed and the insulation was exposed. In this case, it was necessary to remove and replace the insulation to eliminate the smoke smell.

Sicklerville House Fire

A building fire, residential or commercial, is typically the most expensive type of damage to your property. The extensive cleaning required takes many man hours to complete. One of the steps in most fire cleaning damages is a duct cleaning. This picture is of a duct that is coated in soot.

Particle Ionization

This pictures is of a bathroom wall in a home that recently had a puff back. A puff back is when the heating oil burner does not ignite properly and the oil fumes are able to buildup and then cause a small explosion when it ignites. Once this happens, soot and smoke can travel through the HVAC vents causing damage to multiple rooms. That was the case in this fire damage, and there was an oily soot film on the contents in every room in the house. In this picture, you can see black circles and lines on the drywall. These darker marks are caused by particle ionization. The metal nail heads holding the drywall to the studs are still magnitized and attract the ionized smoke particles to land in a ring around them. Acting quickly and having the walls and ceiling cleaned properly often reduces the need for paintwork.

Blackwood Fire Damage

We were contacted by the insurance company after a local resident had a house fire. The fire occurred just 3 days before Christmas. Luckily, everyone was able to get out, but there was excessive damage and soot on everything the homeowners owned. During our initial walk through, we asked if certain items needed extra care and this image is a momentum of the couple’s engagement that we were able to clean and return to them.
