What are Chem Sponges?
What you see in this picture above are used chem sponges. Chem sponges are a tool that our technicians use in soot/smoke/fire restoration situations. This sponge is designed to grab soot off of hard surfaces. When someone experiences a fire in their home or business, soot travels far from the fire source. Often times when we help customers with fire damage that started in the kitchen, soot can be found all the way on the second floor in many rooms. These sponges will amaze you! To the untrained eye, surfaces can look clean but with one swipe of a chem sponge, you’ll be in shock at the amount of black residue that appears. This is why it’s extremely important that a professional handles your fire damage restoration needs.
