Media Blasting for Fire Damage
During the fire restoration process, our team at SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford often uses a high impact technique to help recover a property. This technique is referred to as media blasting and is often used to remove severe fire damage from the elements of a structure. It is the process of using high pressure to force one abrasive material against another in order to remove the surface contaminate.
This technique was recently used during the fire damage services performed for a Chadds Ford home. Wood ashes had been left unattended in the stove, causing a fire that had affected the entire structure. During the fire restoration process, we used garnet to forcibly help remove the damage in the affected areas.
Various types of media can be used to help remove fire damage including glass, dry ice, and baking soda. SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford uses this technique in cases of severe fire damage as a necessary step in restoring a property “Like it never even happened.”
