Parkland Homes Are Restored to Pre-Loss Condition with Proper Fire Damage Mitigation.



A fire does not have to be all-consuming to impact your Parkland home. A Kitchen fire is the most common cause of residential blazes. This is what caused the fire that damaged the exposed beams in this farmhouse kitchen. Professional fire mitigation ensures proper cleanup and restoration.

How Can Soot Be Removed from The Exposed Beams?

You built your kitchen around the beautiful wood and exposed beams to reflect the rustic look you love. Then a kitchen fire causes some charring and soot damage to the beams. To properly handle the fire damage to the Parkland residence, SERVPRO gets called in. Not only were the wood structural elements impacted, but smoke residue had spread throughout the kitchen. Other areas were affected as well. One of the techniques used in situations like this is dry ice blasting.

What Does Dry Ice Blasting Do?

Dry ice blasting is perfect in situations like this as it is a gentle, non-abrasive cleaning method. It is a dry process that involves the use of C02 pellets.  When the pellets hit the surface, they dissipate instantly. In this case, avoiding the use of steel brushes, scapers, and other blasting methods is preferred to save the look of the exposed beams. Dry ice blasting has many benefits, including:

  • Eco-friendly – No harsh chemicals get used, and the entire process is non-toxic.
  • Water free – Pressure washing could be used but would introduce water to the scene. No water involved in this process.
  • No waste disposal – No extra waste is produced by this method.
  • Simple cleanup – Sweeping or vacuuming typically takes care of the soot waste that falls to the floor.
  • Saves time & money  – Quicker than traditional methods; it means lower labor cost.
