Removing Char and Soot from Kitchen Cabinetry
In a fire damage situation where cabinet doors and interiors have been affected by fire, SERVPRO professionals have various tools at their disposal for addressing the damage. If moisture is present from fire suppression, restoration professionals dry this first to stop potential corrosion of HVAC systems, cabinet hinges, kitchenware, and other metal surfaces in or near the affected kitchen. Food items exposed to heat and soot, including canned and packaged goods, are likely contaminated and require disposal.
- Technicians may use dry cleaning sponges or Crumbly Cleaner to address light soils with manual cleaning, which can be especially helpful for salvaging sooty cabinet interiors
- Heavier soot and soils may require wet cleaning with EPA-registered antimicrobials or alkaline cleaning solutions to eliminate stains
- For hard-to-remove char on restorable wood fixtures, SERVPRO professionals may use soda blasting and other blast media, like corn cobs or dry ice, to precisely eliminate odor-causing soils
