Fire Damage Cleaning

Whether it is a house fire or commercial property, the damage caused by a fire can have a devastating impact, creating structural damage and leaving premises uninhabitable for a long period of time. In addition to the visual and physical damage, soot damage and smoke damage to the ceiling, walls and furniture, fire damage can also have secondary effects that can lead to health problems.

Therefore, it is essential that fire damage is assessed and cleaned up as soon it is safe to do so. Not only can it cause financial loss, but a delay or failure to seek professional fire restoration can lead to further deterioration of the building and equipment.

At Rentokil Specialist Hygiene, we understand the devastating impact of fire and can provide a professional fire and smoke damage restoration and cleanup service with a fast and empathetic response.

How do you clean up following fire damage?

Our fire damage cleanup team understands the devastating impact that fire can have on a property, often leaving them out of action for an extended period of time. Our expert technicians have the knowledge and access to the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) and specialist fire damage cleanup equipment, to deal with the damage inflicted by fire and smoke, to help to prevent any further damage occurring.

Our service helps to restore your building so that it is ready for redecoration. Once the emergency services have attended the scene and released your premises, our team will carry out a professional and thorough fire damage clean up and smoke damage clean up, to help minimise business downtime. Our fire cleanup service includes:

  • Emergency 24/7 call-out service - our technicians provide a rapid response nationwide.
  • We offer an appropriate, tailor-made solution for premises depending on the extent of fire damage and the cleanup required.
  • Smoke damage cleanup by removing debris and the visual aspects of fire damage.
  • Soot removal using our innovative fire restoration service.
  • Our service is carried out by our team of RSPH accredited technicians.

Why is Professional Fire Damage Cleanup Important?

Whether your premises is a residential property or a commercial unit, the damage inflicted from fire can cause lasting damage to not only the structure but its appearance. When a fire occurs, porous surfaces expand allowing the soot and smoke odours to enter. Once the surface begins to cool, the pores will then close, trapping in the soot particles, smoke and odours. If fire damage is not decontaminated and cleaned correctly, when the air temperature rises, soot and smoke particles can be released through open pores on the surface, becoming a health risk to those in the room.

Smoke residue from fires often travels from areas differing in temperature and pressure, enabling soot damage and odours to spread throughout the building from where the initial fire began. Therefore, it is recommended that the surrounding area is cleaned beyond the visual damage and debris before aesthetic restoration is carried out, to help prevent or minimise secondary damage and the associated health risks.

EcoBlasting: Fire Damage Restoration

Cleaning smoke damage and fire damage should always be carried out by a professional specialist cleaning service, to ensure all affected areas are cleaned. As part of our fire damage restoration process, our expert technicians use EcoBlasting to clean fire damage from a range of different surfaces, to restore your property to its previous condition.

EcoBlasting is an environmentally friendly solution that uses compressed air and a blasting pot filled with an abrasive (for fire damage restoration this is usually bicarbonate of soda). The abrasive is blasted from the hose onto the surface, removing the carbon and soot. The process removes any coating to the surface, but is not aggressive and can be used on virtually any surface. Rentokil Specialist Hygiene's professional EcoBlasting service will revive a site that has been affected by fire, removing both the visual signs of fire damage as well as the associated odours.

EcoBlasting features:

  • The combination of air pressure and abrasive is an effective cleaning solution to remove the soot and smoke smell without causing further damage to surfaces or leaving any marks or shadows.
  • Eco friendly, non-toxic and non-hazardous to the environment.
  • No aggressive or corrosive chemicals, helping to leave your area clean following fire and smoke damage.
  • Can be used on glass, wood, metal, brick and most stone surfaces (including soft stone surfaces).
  • Operationally safe and will not damage glass or chrome.
  • Abrasives can be altered to suit a range of different service types or specialist environment
  • Our EcoBlasting service is carried out by our team of accredited technicians, trained to carry out EcoBlasting for fire and smoke damage restoration, and for a wide variety of problems.
