  • Wet materials can be VERY heavy. Be careful!

Be sure to: 

  • Remove excess water by mopping and blotting.
  • Wipe excess water from wood furniture after removal of lamps and tabletop items.
  • Remove and prop wet upholstery and cushions.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting.
  • Turn air conditioning on for maximum drying in summer.

3/25/2021 (Permalink)

Fire Damage The Fire & Water Damage Cleanup & Restoration Experts at SERVPRO of Marlton/Morningside are available 24/7 for all of your damage concerns.

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.  

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Different Types of Smoke

There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Marlton/Morningside will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting.
