A small fire can have a significant impact on a home. Fires in the kitchen area are the most common cause of residential fires in Dallas and across the US. Professional fire mitigation is the best way to handle cleanup and restoration.
Is There a Way Of Cleaning Soot From Exposed Beams?
Many people love the look of open, farmhouse style homes and kitchens. Exposed beams bring a rustic feel to the residence. The homeowner of this residence walked away from a skillet for a few minutes. The skillet caught on fire, and thankfully it was contained quickly. But smoke residue and soot spread rapidly throughout the house and onto the exposed beams. The fire damage to this Dallas home now requires professional cleanup and restoration. Our SERVPRO technicians can safely clean and restored the exposed beam using dry ice blasting.
What is Dry Ice Blasting?
Dry ice blasting is a dry process that uses CO2 pellets. The pellets evaporate instantly when they hit the item’s surface. It’s a non-abrasive and gentle cleaning method. Steel brushes, scrapers, and other blasting material can impact the surface area. In the case of the exposed beams, dry ice blasting allows them to be cleaned in a manner that safely and quickly restored them to preloss condition. Other benefits include:
• No waste disposal - Because this method produces no waste product, cleanup is simplified. The coating that gets removed from the beams is what needs to be disposed of. This can be taken care of by sweeping or vacuuming.
• Eco-friendly – The process is non-toxic. No hazardous or harsh chemicals get used.
• Time and money saver – Dry ice blasting is often quicker than traditional restoration methods. No solvents or blasting material need to be disposed of, saving the client money. Reduced restoration time means decreased labor costs.
• No pressure washing – prevents further water from being introduced to the scene.
