Cleaning up the smoke and soot in Houston

6/9/2021 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot are extremely intrusive, and they can enter your home through many locations, producing hidden damage and odors. Our skill and experience with smoke damage allow us to investigate and precisely analyze the amount of the damage in order to build a complete 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

Wet and dry smoke are the two forms of smoke. As a result, several forms of soot residue are left behind after a fire. SERVPRO of Westfield will analyze the soot to establish the type of smoke damage that has occurred before beginning the restoration process. The cleaning techniques will subsequently be determined by the data gathered during the pre-testing. Here's a little more 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.
