SMOKE DAMAGE REPAIR FOR HOME AND BUSINESS
When a fire breaks out, most assume that the burning of the structure is the primary source of loss. But that is always true, as flames and heat cause structural damages to affected areas, one of the biggest contributors during a fire is smoke and the residual effects of smoke. Smoke can affect contents and porous items throughout your home or business, penetrating into materials causing discoloration and odors, and leave behind an acidic residue buildup.
IN A FIRE, THERE CAN BE MANY FORMS AND TYPES OF SMOKE THAT CAN BE CREATED CAUSING FURTHER DAMAGE.
Below is a list of common smoke residue types that are often created when certain items burn.
Wet Smoke: This kind of smoke is often set up in a slow, low-temperature fire. Often referred to as “wet smoke” because it can create a thick, sticky film of residue that can build up on surfaces causing subsequent damage and emitting heavy smoke odors. This type of smoke buildup is also the most difficult to clean, remove, and deodorize from belongings and structures.
Dry Smoke: When a fire reaches a high temperature, “dry smoke” is often created. Dry smoke has a fine, powdery-like consistency and due to this form, it can easily be cleaned from strong, non-porous surfaces. Particularly alarming about dry smoke is when the powdery-like substance is hidden or becomes trapped in cracks or porous surfaces, such as clothing and upholstered contents, where it can emit musky smoke odors and become difficult to remove.
Protein Smoke: When food or organic materials burn, often creating a smoke by-product known as “protein smoke.” This type of smoke can produce soot that is hard to see visibly, but easy to feel. It’s generally light to clear in color, and can permanently discolor wood surfaces, and the odors it emits can be a bit overwhelming.
Petroleum Smoke: When oils or oil-based substances burn, petroleum smoke is produced. This type of smoke is dark in appearances and will often discolor and stain any porous material it touches. Fortunately, due to it being oil-based, this kind of smoke may be able to be cleaned with a degreasing agent.
Smoke and the resulting odor can affect clothing and porous materials or contents even when furthest from the source of the fire. These materials need expert quick inspection and restoration using specialized and proven techniques to salvage these items. Air filtering devices, equipped with carbon filtration, ozone machines, and hydroxyl units are just a few of the pieces of the technology advances used in combating and assisting in the complete odor removal in your residential or commercial property.
In addressing the water used during the fire department response, each has to be approached as a category three or grossly contaminated due to the many contaminants involved with soot and the by-products of burning building materials. If it is safe to do so, removal of water damaged carpet and carpet padding should be performed immediately and drying equipment setup to start the process of salvaging any remaining building materials.
Keep in mind that any area that is a direct origin or that could be detrimental to determining the cause of loss must remain untouched until cleared by the investigations units of both the local fire department and your insurance carrier. As a rule of thumb, this should always include any fire-damaged debris removed from the residence or commercial property during the fire department response.
