Media Blasting Is a Helpful Restoration Tool at SERVPRO
This damaged home in Fort Atkinson, WI was the result of a faulty electrical wire connected to the wood deck. Notice the extent of the fire damage; the vinyl siding has melted away and soot and charring are present on the wood framing. The after photo was taken after SERVPRO of Jefferson County/Oconomowoc technicians used a very powerful air compressor and sodium bicarbonate to remove the black charring.
This method of media blasting also helps in deodorization after the fire. This process helped save thousands of dollars in repair because the materials were able to be salvaged. The home owners were happy that this process was so effective and the insurance adjuster was able to minimize the cost of this insurance claim.
