This week we were cleaning a basement for a customer who’s oilburner had failed, spreading oily soot throughout the basement. It is very important to understand that this residue is very acidic and any moisture, even the oils in our skin, can activate these acids and permanently etch surfaces. Along with cleaning the entire structure of the basement we also moved, cleaned and replaced all the contents.
If you ever encounter a situation like this in your home or business, contact your insurance company immediately and let the professionals handle everything.
