Why do you remove personal contents from the home before a fire restoration?

Removing personal contents and charred materials helps in odor-reduction before chemical deodorization is instituted.

What is preconditioning cleaning?

This is a type of cleaning for soot removal, typically using a HEPA vacuum with a soft bristle. Any dry soil and soot removal on flat surfaces will be done with the use of a soot or chemical sponge. 

Soot that has been embedded into surfaces will need wet cleaning with a product that is either water-based, solvent-based or abrasive. Which one is used is dependent upon the pH of the cleaning product and target surface to be cleaned. Liquid deodorizers are applied using equipment that will create a spray, mist or fog of the chemical used in order to cover a wider range of surfaces.
