Removing "oily soot" residue
Years of cigarette smoke can etch into plastic, causing it to be impossible to remove it completely. Soots can tarnish metal beyond restoration in a matter of days. When SERVPRO technicians arrive on scene, we make note of the materials that are covered in smoke and get working on them a s soon as possible.
The glass glob of the lamp in this photo is an example of a surface that was coated in nicotine smoke that turned the glass with a film of nasty brown residue. SERVPRO manufactures a line of fire and smoke cleanup chemicals to reverse the effects of years of contamination. The glass was clean and odorless when our technicians were done. We are here to help... SERVPRO of San Leandro.
