Types of Fires
What many property owners don’t think about is that there are a variety of fires. It’s not quite as simple as a generic fire that occurred with an ensuing process to return everything to pre-loss condition.
The restoration plan depends on the type of fire, which could be:
- Protein Fire – this happens when food from the oven or stove has burned and started a fire. Protein fires leave behind a strong odor and smoke residue that sticks to many surfaces.
- Complex Fire – when natural and synthetic items are burning, greasy residue and synthetic smoke odors soon follow. In a complex fire, emergency corrosion mitigation is necessary for protecting surfaces.
- Natural Fire – these occur from trees, shrubs, and bushes burning outside while the smoke seeps into the structure of your property and leaves residue and odors.
- Furnace Fire – malfunctioning heating appliances are a common occurrence, especially when the heating appliance is oil-fired.
