Soot and Smoke Damage
The amount of soot in this home looked really bad. All the surfaces were covered in black soot that needed to be cleaned quickly because of the wall tile.
Can wall tile be damaged by soot?
When fires burn they leave soot at a higher acidic PH balance. The wall tiles, if not cleaned quickly, will begin to show small holes of damage where the acid had eaten its way through the seal. SERVPRO of Asheville West cleaned the house quickly and had it looking as good as new. The walls and ceiling were also covered which were cleaned and deodorized "Like it never even happened."
