Using Dry Sponges To Clean After A Fire

4/24/2019 (Permalink)

Soot from fire damage should not initially be cleaned up with water.  SERVPRO uses a special dry sponge on surfaces such as drywall.   It is made of a natural rubber and used like an eraser.  Once the surface of the sponge is dirty, it has to be discarded and cannot be cleaned or reused.  The sponges are very porous and hold a remarkable amount of soot. After wiping the fine particles of the soot off the surface, then it can be wet washed.  

There is no substitute for training and experience. As fire and water damage specialists, our business is built upon fire and water restoration expertise. We have the knowledge and the specialized equipment to get your property back to pre-fire condition.
