This is a view of a soot web! We have many customers apologize for their "spider" webs when we arrive onsite. We explain to them that they are soot webs...The soot webs are a sure sign that the smoke traveled into that room. When there are soot webs, we hepa vacuum the area prior to cleaning. We will then either wash and rinse the area or use a dry chemical sponge, depending on if its a flat paint or gloss paint, to clean the affected areas to ensure that the homeowner will return to a safe and clean environment.
If you see these soot webs, call SERVPRO of Columbia, Montour & Sullivan Counties at 570-759-0966.
