Fire Restoration and Smoke Damage

After the flaming fire has settled to the ground, the remaining tragedy shows itself. Smoke damage is the physical damage you can see after the fire is gone. Left uncleaned, smoke can permeate walls, carpets, and furniture. There are also health hazards of exposure to smoke and soot during fire restoration. If soot enters the bloodstream, you are at risk for a large variety of health issues. Some concerns include respiratory issues, bronchitis, asthma, and even stroke.

What is the difference between smoke and soot?

During a large fire, the after effects of smoke damage appears including the visual appearance of soot. What is the main differences between these two, and how can you tell them apart?

Smoke is a visible vapor or gas. It is the gas dispersed during the burning of the flames and smoldering materials. Soot is a byproduct of incomplete burning of fossil fuels. Soot is actually a very fine, black powdery substance of carbon and tar. It accumulates on the outside of any items in the fire. It can settle into walls and fabric, and puts those near it in high risk for respiratory damage if exposed for long amounts of time.

Laser cleaning technology can remove soot from surfaces such as brick or metal. Traditional methods involving chemical cleaners, a dry-brush are incredibly time-consuming. Laser cleaning offers an efficient and safe alternative option for fire and smoke damage restoration.

Industrial Laser Cleaning

Laser cleaning uses laser irradiation to remove contaminants from a variety of surfaces. Aside from a more effective workflow compared to traditional cleaning methods, laser cleaning is also environmentally friendly.

Industrial Laser Rust Removal

Industrial cleaning can include laser rust removal over large surface areas. During rust removal, laser ablation removes rust by breaking the molecular bonds on the metal substrate with no effect on the metal. If you have numerous metal parts, this process proves effective for cleaning up even extensive rust damage.
