Fire Damage Cleaning
Whether it is a house fire or commercial property, the damage caused by 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.
it is essential that fire damage is assessed and cleaned up as soon as 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 damage and deterioration of the building and equipment.

Our cleaning service helps to restore your premises so that it is ready for fire damage repair and redecoration. Once the emergency services have attended the scene and released your premises, our team will carry out professional and thorough fire damage clean up and clean smoke damage, to help minimise business downtime. Our fire cleanup service includes:
Whether your premises is a residential property or a commercial unit, the damage inflicted by fire can cause post-fire 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 as well as any by-products. 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. Making it important the surrounding area is cleaned beyond the visual damage, discolouration and debris before aesthetic restoration is carried out, to help prevent or minimise secondary damage and the associated health risks.
Cleaning smoke damage and fire damage should always be carried out by a professional restoration service. 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.
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.
The smell of smoke can linger for long periods of time following a fire. Our service helps neutralise the odour rather than simply masking it.
EcoBlasting can be used on a variety of surfaces and provides a solution for a wide range of problems including graffiti removal, fire restoration and carbon cleanup.
