The fire happened approximately eight weeks before we attended site and prior to us attending, the property was cleared of all contents and was left ready for cleaning.
Our evaluation was based on a visual inspection of the internal areas that required cleaning only. The ceilings to the entrance hall, conservatory, kitchen and loft were all excluded from our inspection as per the client’s request.
The remaining rooms in the property required decontamination and cleaning, including the kitchen which suffered from severe fire damage.
The fire had caused soot and smoke contamination throughout the entire property. Soot includes fine black particles which are mostly comprised of carbon, and is the byproduct of incomplete combustion; ie. the burning within a limited supply of oxygen. Due to its size and lightweight, soot can easily travel far from the original source of the fire.
