Fire can leave your home or business devastated. Even after the fire is extinguished, soot and smoke can leave it's mark as a reminder that there was a fire. This is why it is vital that you work with your insurance company and professional restoration company. 

Soot is a black powdery substance that is produced when a fire does not completely burn. Soot attaches to surfaces leaving a dirty trail. Soot can have a impact on your HVAC system, which can recirculate into the air in your home or business. 

The combination of water and smoke creates a wet black substance, which can be a challenge to clean. It may spread further creating more damages to your property. 

The smell of smoke is not visible. It can be trapped in your furniture, draperies, clothes and carpets. 

If your property sustains smoke or soot damages from a fire, SERVPRO of Midtown Memphis is available 24/7 to help. Call today 901-454-4975
