Identifying Different Types of Fire Damage

Protein Fire Cleanup: Food & Kitchen Fires

Food from the oven or stove has burned, leaving strong burnt food odors and smoke residue on contents and surfaces.

Complex Fire Restoration: Synthetic & Natural Items

Multiple natural and synthetic items inside your home have burned causing black smoke residue on contents and surfaces and synthetic smoke odors. Here, emergency corrosion mitigation is needed to protect at-risk surfaces.

Natural Fire Recovery: Outdoor Fire Impact

Trees, shrubs and bushes have burned and smoke has penetrated the structure from outside, so smoke residue and odor are present.

Furnace Malfunction Solutions: Smoke Damage Cleanup

Heating appliances such as oil-fired furnaces have malfunctioned and caused smoke to be distributed throughout the property.

Understanding the Extent of Fire & Smoke Damage

  • Ash and smoke can continue to cause damage and corrosion to materials if they are left behind.
  • Odors from smoke will stay in a room or a home long after the fire and continue to cause problems if they are not removed.
  • In a few minutes, walls and other surfaces can be discolored.
  • In a few hours, finishes on kitchen appliances turn yellow.
  • Smoke causes etching in glass after just a short time, and smoke will tarnish metal quickly.

Why You Shouldn't Attempt DIY Fire Damage Cleanup

The residue left behind after a fire is a biohazard and can cause health problems if it is not taken care of correctly and thoroughly. You do not want to attempt to clean up your home on your own after a fire or you may cause more damage. Only experts with the right training and tools can assure the job is done properly.

Did you know that smoke continues to destroy your home and its contents even after the fire is out?

Smoke that has coated or penetrated surfaces continues to affect the chemical composition of fabrics, metals, walls, ceilings and even tiles. Count on us to handle every aspect of the smoke and soot removal as well as restore areas damaged by fire.
