Removing Smoke Residues from High Vaulted Leominster Ceilings

High vaulted ceilings are an increasingly popular aesthetic feature in Leominster homes. After some disasters like fire losses take place, cleaning up after these destructive events requires experience from trained restoration professionals like our SERVPRO team. With the right equipment and techniques, we can clean exposed surfaces contending with residues and other lingering effects after the fire.

Clearing residues and soot deposits from high vaulted ceilings and the upper portions of walls requires a wide range of equipment for fire damage recovery in Leominster. Not only do our technicians need to remain careful about the choice in cleaning practices to ensure that soot and other residues do not stain the underlying material, but there is the added challenge of reaching these compromised areas of the house. The necessary machines and tools to adequately reach these damaged surfaces get determined during the initial walkthrough and scoping of the job by our project manager.

Reaching the appropriate heights often comes down to our SERVPRO technicians running equipment like scissor lifts, elevating platforms, or scaffolding. All of these options offer a stable workspace for our experienced professionals, even when abrasive cleaning techniques are necessary to protect the substrate beneath the layer of soot residue. Certain wall materials can benefit from various cleaning practices, including foam cleaning, dry cleaning, and wet cleaning with potent cleansing agents.

With popcorn ceiling often found between exposed beams, peroxide active cleaning approaches can help to dissolve and loosen thicker layers of soiling. In instances where we know that our professionals must repaint damaged surfaces after mitigation steps complete, more agitative techniques like scrubbing with steel wool can help to remove thick deposits of soot and smoke residues.

High vaulted ceilings and tall wall surfaces can present cleaning challenges for our SERVPRO of Fitchburg-Leominster team restoring your property after a fire damage incident. No matter what your home needs from deodorization and debris removal to soot and stain removal, we have the experienced professionals to help. Give us a call anytime that you need us at (978) 537-1500.
