Muskogee Smoke & Soot Damage From a Fire

Fire Damage Muskogee Smoke & Soot Damage From a Fire Residential Fire

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive 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

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 Muskogee/McIntosh Co. & Tahlequah 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. Here is some additional 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.

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Understanding The Process Of Cleaning Up Smoke Damage

2/26/2019 (Permalink)

Smoke damage can often be one of the most widespread effects to contend with in your home after a fire disaster. While there are many other concerns, such as structural weaknesses that often take precedent for restorations and mitigation, restoring damage to your property should be a focus of whatever professional outfit you choose. Our team can arrive quickly to help lessen the damage and prolonged impact of a fire emergency, and work to eliminate the presence of smoke damage.

Much of the cleanup and restoration for these results in your home focus on odor removal. Indoor air quality is also a primary focus for our SERVPRO® professionals dispatched to your home once the first responders have left. We work quickly to establish our purification equipment such as air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators to run the available air through HEPA filters over time to begin pulling smoke particles and soot from the environment and reducing hazards or risks of exposure without respirators.

Smoke damage often depends on the type of smoke that affected your home throughout the fire. Dry smoke results from high heat, but is also a residue that is much easier for our SERVPRO technicians to clean with dry and wet sponges on the coated surfaces. Wet smoke leaves a thick residue on surfaces and contents, which often requires specialized equipment to clean and deodorize fully. The heat generated by a house fire plays a key role in the actual penetration of soot particles into porous materials like drywall and fabrics.

Improving the scent of your home after a fire is also a concern for our team, but these steps often follow reconstruction and other restoration efforts. Waiting for deodorization allows our technicians to leave your home completely cleaned and odor-free. Our thermal foggers can often do the greatest amount of deodorization, as these machines are suitable to use in open areas, fabrics, soft materials, and work to remove odors from surfaces as well.

Smoke can provide many damaging effects to your home after a fire emergency. Our SERVPRO of Muskogee/McIntosh Counties & Tahlequah's rapid response team has the expertise and tools to help. Give us a call today at 918-913-9940.

Content Restoration

2/21/2019 (Permalink)

Apartment Fire

In January of this year, a Muskogee apartment caught fire and lost complete use of some of its units. 

One tenant in particular lived 30 years in her apartment before a space heater turned an entire building into a desolate burnt patch where lives once lived and created memories. 

After 30 years, she had many items of great value that need salvaging with delicate attention. Our content crew took the lead on combing through the rubble and debris to find what was left of all the great memories that she and other tenants accumulated while living in their apartment. 

Content restoration is a tedious and meticulous job but our crew understands that every piece counts when its all you may have left and every measure is taken to restore your treasures. 

When needing to restore items of value, sentimental or monetary, SERVPRO Muskogee/ McIntosh Counties & Tahlequah handles every unique situation and item as though it is priceless.
