After A Fire You Need Professional Help

2/10/2021 (Permalink)

When fire strikes your Dedham, Ma commercial or residential property most owners think expect that there will be some sort of structural damage that needs to be fixed. What most do not consider is the need for professional cleaning to remove smoke and soot damage. Why should a property owner seek a professional? 

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 of Norwood/West Roxbury will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting.

Wet Smoke – Plastic & Rubber

Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper & Wood

Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue 

Protein fire residue is produced by evaporation of materials, is virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, and usually has an extreme pungent odor. 

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions. The Disaster Remediation Teams at SERVPRO of Norwood/West Roxbury  are here to help! Call us at (781) 769-9125.  We will make it, "Like it never even happened."
