Cleaning Smoke and Soot Damage in Otay Mesa/ San Ysidro

SERVPRO of Otay Mesa/San Ysidro can clean up damage from smoke and soot in your City or County home.  

Smoke is a mixture of gases and small particles. The small particles are also called ash, and they include soot. Soot is the collection of particles left from incomplete burning of products that contain carbon. These products include wood and coal. Smoke and soot do not destroy materials the way fire does. They leave behind greasy films and have an unpleasant odor.
