A Lesson On Dry Sponges

5/8/2020 (Permalink)

Soot from fire damage cannot be cleaned with just water. SERVPRO uses a special dry sponge on surfaces like drywall. It is made of a natural rubber and used like an eraser.

Once the surface of the sponge is dirty, it must be discarded and cannot be cleaned or reused. The sponges are very porous and hold a remarkable amount of soot. After wiping soot off the surface, then it can be washed.

There is no substitute for training and experience. As fire and water damage specialists, our business is built upon fire and water restoration expertise. We have the knowledge and the specialized equipment to get your property back “Like it never even happened.”

If you have questions about fire, smoke or soot damage, call SERVPRO of Mayes & Wagoner Counties at (918)486-1055.

During this time, it is extremely important to maintain extra vigilant personal hygiene and safety precautions. Here are some helpful tips to follow:

  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and running water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Stay home when you have a fever or present a risk of spreading illness to others.
  • Maintain a proper social distance between people (3 feet).
  • Shaking hands and other forms of social greeting that creates contact with other people is discouraged during this period.

Our team hopes that these tips were helpful and that everyone will stay safe in such a crisis and take the proper precautions to remain healthy.
