There’s been a fire at your home or business. Once the firemen leave, your first inclination may be to go inside the structure to see what you can salvage and start the cleaning process. But cleaning up after a fire is much more complicated than regular cleaning. It’s also very dangerous. Because once the last flame has been snuffed out, the dangers from a fire continue.

That’s why the highly trained professionals at Cyclone Kleen Up wear heavy duty personal protection equipment (PPE) on fire mitigation jobs until all the soot is removed.
