Who Do I Call For Fire Damage Services?
Smoke and soot are very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home or business which can then lead to hidden damage and odors. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allow us to properly inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action. There are several components to consider when dealing with a fire damage-
- Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and the 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.
We also need to take into consideration the type of smoke.
There are different types of smoke and as a result there are different types of soot residue found after having a fire damage. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Santa Cruz will test the soot to determine what type of smoke damage it is and the best way of treating it. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information gathered in the pretesting. Here is some information on the types of smoke and residue-
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 so does the smoke.
Protein Fire Residue- Produce by evaporation of material rather than from a fire
Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.
