When our smiling crew went to the San Leandro property, they found a minor fire that was extinguished but left behind a slightly charred and sooty residue. Since it was wood that could be restored our SERVPRO team members happily attacked the task at hand. Decked out in their Tyvek suits and gloves they used "soda blasting" to remove the slightly embedded carbonized debris within the wood. The semi-abrasive pressurized discharge leaves the surface clean, smooth, and no wetness from water. Sodium bicarbonate (large particle baking soda) shatters on impact and thus removes the film or grime without damaging the surface. It this case, it also acts as a deodorizer. Do you have a box of baking soda in your fridge? SERVPRO has the talented employees and cutting-edge equipment to provide cost-effective and successful treatment. Just call us to make you feel "Like it never even happened."
