Smoke Damaged Hallway in a Philadelphia School
The paper trash container caught fire (it was plastic), and the Before Photo illustrates the extent of the soot-filled corridor. There was no structural damage to this Philadelphia school, just smoke staining and odors. The building HVAC ductwork system needed a complete cleaning along with these visible effects. SERVPRO FST technicians can wipe down the walls and ceiling tiles with Chemical Sponges. This prevents smearing and exacerbating the mess. We had the weekend to restore this building to its preloss condition, "Like it never even happened." By setting up hydroxyl generators and then a thermal fogging we did eliminate the odors. Several walls needed a spot painting, but the job was completed on time for Monday morning classes to resume, probably to the dismay of some students. But, you can rely on SERVPRO of Manayunk for emergency assistance.
