Which Fire Damage Aspects Do Lynn Homeowners Underestimate?
SERVPRO Helps Evaluate the Impact of Issues Like Smoke in Your Lynn Residence
Of the many damages caused by fires in properties, one may not expect smoke to have severe effects or require costly restoration because, unlike heat and flames, it does not consume materials. Therefore it is easy to underestimate the restoration work needed for your Lynn home to regain its preloss state.
Smoke is a significant aspect of fire damage that leaves Lynn properties in a worse state. Smoke readily spreads to most house sections, unlike the other fire elements like heat and flames, which progress systemically and are contained when extinguished. SERVPRO provides highly technicians to help resolve smoke damages.
Addressing smoke damage involves activities like:
- Deodorizing furniture
- Cleaning porous and hard surfaces
- Replacing wallpaper and insulation
- Inspecting appliances
Smoke is made up of particulate matter, aerosols, and moisture, among other things. As smoke billows out of the structure through openings like windows, it touches surfaces and items all over the house. The particulate matter and moisture it contains are deposited on the materials. Therefore, every surface and object in a home requires cleaning to remove the smoke residues.
Various cleaning methods are necessary within one property because of:
- Different types of residue left
- The different materials affected
- Condition of the affected materials
One broad classification of smoke residues is whether they are dry or wet. Wet residues are difficult to clean since they adhere strongly to surfaces. They are produced by shouldering fires or when synthetic materials such as plastics burn. SERVPRO restoration technicians help by evaluating the type of residues to determine cleanability and then using advanced cleaning techniques to tackle stubborn soils.
Smoke odor is another significant category of damage. Odor is significantly harder to manage in furniture items. However, our SERVPRO technicians use powerful solutions such as thermal fogging, which can reach all nooks and crannies, neutralizing all odors.
