Sodo, WA Fire Damage Cleanup and Restoration
Fires can be destructive in commercial properties and large venues like Lumen Field or the John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence. Our SERVPRO team specializes in cleaning fire and smoke damage.
The First Steps in Effective Fire Mitigation
Mitigating fire damage can be critical in preventing greater harm to the structure as restorers can enter the house after extinguishment. Initial actions such as fire debris removal reduced the presence of soot and smoke damage to make other recovery actions more productive.
What Are the Main Focuses of Fire Damage Cleanup in Sodo?
Because the appearance and impact of fires in homes and businesses can change so much from one to another, the priorities of cleanup change as well. It is always the objective of our team to return structures to preloss condition, but the path is taken to reach this point changes based on the needs of the property. Some of the necessary actions include:
- Soot cleanup
- Fire restoration
- Smoke odor removal
- Fire-damaged content cleaning
How Threatening is Soot to Sodo Homes?
Soot damage can be among the most formidable obstacles that exist after fire damage. Because partial combustion of so many materials can generate these particles, and the perceived health concerns with exposure to these solids in the environment, overcoming present soot threats is vital. We have multiple solutions to accomplish this with products and equipment.

Our Fire Restoration Process
Every fire damage event is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our process for the “typical” fire damage emergency.
Step 1: Emergency Contact
The fire restoration process begins when you call us. Our consultant will guide you through the crisis and may ask several questions to help us better understand the type of fire damage you experienced, determining the equipment and resources needed.
Step 2: Inspection and Fire Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect and test adjoining rooms of your property to determine the extent of the fire, smoke, and soot damage. This step is crucial to developing a plan of action.
Step 3: Immediate Board-Up and Roof-Tarp Service (if needed)
Fire damage can often compromise windows, walls, and roofs. To maintain security and to protect against further damage, we can board up missing windows and walls and place tarps on damaged roofs.
Step 4: Water Removal and Drying (if water damage is present)
If needed, we can begin the water removal process with powerful pumps and extraction units. This removes most of the water. We complete the water removal and drying process with industrial-strength dehumidifiers and air movers.
Step 5: Removal of Smoke and Soot from All Surfaces
Your property’s ceiling, walls, floors, and other surfaces will likely have smoke and soot residue. We’ll use specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques to properly clean your home or business.
Step 6: Cleaning and Sanitizing
We clean and sanitize the restorable items and structures damaged by the fire. Our professionals use a variety of cleaning techniques to restore your belongings to pre-fire condition. We’re also trained to remove odors using industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Restoration is the final step—getting your home or business to its pre-fire condition. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
