How Do I Get My Walls and Ceilings Cleaned After a Fire?
SERVPRO Technicians can Identify and Choose the Best Cleaning Methods for Fire Damage in Tallahassee Homes
Even a small-scale fire in your home can leave behind copious amounts of smoke and soot to clean up. Walls and ceilings are often affected, and removal of the sheetrock is not the only course of action if the proper restoration methods are applied.

For example, if liquid cleaners come into contact with dry smoke left by a high heat fire, it can drive the residues more deeply into the surface and ruin the potential for restoration.
