Smoke Damage To Your Home Will Need Professional Attention

6/12/2019 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action. 


Smoke and soot facts:
Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.


Different Types of Smoke
There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire.

Before restoration begins, SERVPRO® West Bradenton / Anna Maria test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred.

The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting.


Here is some additional information:


Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber
Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.


Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood
Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.


Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire
Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.
This kind of damage can occur anywhere, but if it happens to you in West Bradenton or Anna Maria, call us today.
