Chem Sponges

What are Chem Sponges?

What you see in this picture above are used chem sponges. Chem sponges are a tool that our technicians use in soot/smoke/fire restoration situations. This sponge is designed to grab soot off of hard surfaces. When someone experiences a fire in their home or business, soot travels far from the fire source. Often times when we help customers with fire damage that started in the kitchen, soot can be found all the way on the second floor in many rooms. These sponges will amaze you! To the untrained eye, surfaces can look clean but with one swipe of a chem sponge, you’ll be in shock at the amount of black residue that appears. This is why it’s extremely important that a professional handles your fire damage restoration needs.

If you encounter fire or smoke/soot damage in your home or business, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Plymouth / Wareham 508-746-9500

Carver Fire Lead to Smoke/Soot Residue EVERYWHERE

Got Smoke/Soot?

A Carver resident experienced a puff back which threw smoke/soot residue EVERYWHERE the eye could see. In fact, even where the eye could not. When it comes to cleaning up after smoke/soot- you have to wipe down EVERYTHING. Not only to get rid of the smell, but to ensure no hard-to-see particles are left. Once our crew was done with this home, there wasn't a speck of soot the eye could see. The home owner was thrilled to have her home back to it's pre-soot condition.

Soot Damage

This Plymouth home had extensive fire/smoke/soot damage in both the home and on it's contents. You can see just how thick the soot was by looking at this blind railing. A SERVPRO of Plymouth/Wareham technician was able to visibly spell out SERVPRO in the thick, sticky soot. After a lot of hard work, this home and it's salvageable contents were restored back to their pre-fire condition. 

Using Chem Sponges

In this photo you'll see one of our technicians at SERVPRO of Plymouth/Wareham using what is called a chem sponge on this Plymouth family's home after fire damage. Chem sponges, or sometimes called smoke soot or drywall sponges, were specifically designed for the fire/disaster restoration industry. They clean the small traces of soot spread throughout a home after fire or smoke damage.

Fire Damage in a Plymouth Kitchen

This Plymouth homeowner left something on the stove which led to a stove fire in their kitchen. This is the aftermath once our crew arrived at the seen. You can see the visible smoke and soot damage on the wall. Soot also settles all throughout the house and though less noticeable, it can't be forgotten. Our crew goes in with chem sponges and rags to wipe down the entire home as well.
