The damage fires inflict on businesses and homes is often devastating and can leave premises unusable and uninhabitable for long periods of time. The immediate visual damage caused by a fire can be distressing enough without the secondary effects such as soot odour, health problems and corrosion.
It is essential that fire damage is cleaned up immediately as not only does it cause financial loss, but failure to do so can lead to further deterioration of buildings and equipment. Kleenit employs specialist technicians that can help you to clean up the mess.
When a fire occurs, porous surfaces expand allowing the soot and odours to enter. Once the surface begins to cool, the pores will then close, trapping in the soot and odours. If the removal and cleaning of this fire damage is not carried out correctly, when the air temperature rises, this soot and odour can migrate back to the surface, released through the open pores.
