Cosmetic Flareup in a Monte Sereno Bathroom

When a curling iron is plugged in after being placed on a small towel, you can expect a damaging smoke incident. The cotton ignites, and the flame burns the towel along with lotions and oily cosmetics near it. Not a lot of damage, but a messy sooty residue and a pungent odor are the results in this Monte Sereno bathroom. SERVPRO FST technicians are trained in pre-testing and then using the correct detergents, cleansers, and cloths to wipe away the film from the hard surfaces of the countertop, mirror, and vanity. The walls, floor, and personal items can also be cleaned of sooty residues. Odors can linger for months and longer if not neutralized with a hydroxyl generator and a fogging. We understand that masking an odor does not solve the problem; the malodorous molecules must be chemically altered. The After Photo illustrates what we mean with, "Like it never even happened."
