Charred wood?

4/7/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Southern York County has got hundreds of calls over the years regarding fire damages. There are many ways to approach fire damage to a home or business. In almost all cases SERVPRO is there to remove the damaged materials and clean the remaining areas. But cleaning these areas is never a walk in the park. In many cases, we need to use a technique known as soda blasting to get the wood back as close to preloss condition as possible. 

Soda blasting is a combination of compressed air mixed with essentially baking soda to "blast" the wood in small sections to slowly work away the charred wood areas and leave the unaffected wood intact. This process can take hours or days depending on the size of the loss. 

After the soda blasting is completed SERVPRO is then able to do a final cleaning of the home and provide odor sealing to ensure the odor is eliminated. 

For more information on soda blasting or fire damage please feel free to call our office anytime.
