Years of experience
What is Involved
Numerous steps are involved in the safe removal of soot and smoke residue. As part of a complete fire remediation package, our IICRC-certified technicians will attend the site to see the extent of the damages firsthand.
A specific soot cleaning and complete fire damage remediation plan will then be established with a timeline for works and expected outcomes. We collaborate with you to ensure all your needs are met. Accounting for the unique circumstances surrounding every case.
Variations of the following soot cleaning and fire damage restoration processes are used:
- Initial walk-through and visit with site contacts to determine the condition of the property and contents. In this step, we seek confirmation that the building is safe for our technicians to access.
- Removal of non-restorable contents from the site.
- Carbon filtering air scrubbers are installed to assist in eliminating odours and improving air quality.
- Cleansing and sanitisation of restorable ceilings, walls, floors, and fixtures.
- Cleansing and sanitisation of contents.
- Once restoration services have been completed, we conduct another site inspection.
- A full suite of odour remediation treatments is available should the property and/or contents require these services.
Why Engage a Professional?
Soot cleaning should be undertaken by a professional for several reasons. Professionals have the knowledge and expertise to safely handle and remove soot without causing further damage. They are trained in the proper techniques, equipment, and cleaning agents required for effective soot removal. Additionally, professionals can assess the extent of the soot or fire damage and provide appropriate restoration services to prevent long-term issues like corrosion or lingering odours. Do not risk the safety of yourself or your loved ones by undertaking soot cleaning on your own.

What is soot?
Soot refers to the black, powdery, or flaky substance that forms from incomplete combustion of organic matter, such as wood, coal, or oil. It consists of fine carbon particles and may contain other chemicals, pollutants, or impurities depending on the source of combustion.
Why is soot dangerous?
Fire soot, also known as smoke residue, is dangerous due to its composition and potential health hazards. It contains fine particles, toxic chemicals, and carcinogens, such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Inhaling or ingesting these substances can lead to respiratory issues, lung damage, cardiovascular problems, and an increased risk of cancer. Fire soot can also cause skin irritation and eye discomfort. Proper cleanup and removal of fire soot are crucial to minimise health risks.
What are the dangers of fire damage?
Fire damage poses several dangers. It can compromise structural integrity, leading to collapse or instability. Smoke and soot residues can contaminate the air, causing respiratory issues. Fire can release toxic chemicals, such as carbon monoxide, which can be fatal. Additionally, fire damage can result in the loss of belongings and emotional distress.
