Even Small Fires can Create a Lot of Smoke and Fire Damage in Sierra Vista
SERVPRO Technicians Can Remediate Both Fire and Smoke Damage
Many house fires begin in the kitchen as small fires that then spread out of control and into other areas. When a small fire starts, being able to extinguish it before it can spread can help save your home. It does not take much of a blaze to cause substantial amounts of smoke and fire damage.
While the fire may have been in a rather small area, Sierra Vista residents will often notice that smoke damage covers a much larger area in their home than the fire damage does. SERVPRO technicians engage in ongoing education that prepares them for these and other situations that can damage your home, regardless of the size.
Fire damage caused by kitchen fires often produces oily smoke that adheres to almost everything in your home. Along with this heavy smoke, odors can permeate into your wood paneling, carpeting, and furniture. Because this type of odor is caused by solid particulates that will take a very long time to break down, the smell can be overpowering at times, especially when the humidity or temperature is elevated.
In addition to repairing burned and scorched walls, cleaning smoke-infused curtains and draperies, and cleaning your carpets after a small fire, SERVPRO technicians are able to also eliminate much, if not all, of the odor. Much of this odor elimination will be done by our carpet cleaning technician's (CCT) work, but a great portion of the smoke will be in other areas of your home.
Odor elimination can be carried out in several ways, including the injection of your carpeting in strategic patterns with deodorizing liquids, equipment that produces ozone, which will break down solids much more quickly than normal, or gel packs that are placed in locations inaccessible to children or pets so that their contents can slowly be released into the air.
