Fire and smoke damage are challenging obstacles for responding technicians. Because there are varying types of fires, the residues and soils left behind require unique cleaning approaches tailored to the property's condition.

What Types of Smoke Damage Can Impact Melrose Homes? 

Fire cleanup in Melrose homes can change based on multiple types of smoke damage, including:

  • Dry Smoke – High-heat fires can destroy many building materials in their path, leaving thin, chalky smoke residues on surfaces. Wipe cleaning can often resolve these soils.
  • Wet Smoke – Smoldering, lower-heat fires can deposit thicker residues and particles on surfaces that are a formidable presence to remove. The threat of smearing and staining is high, requiring advanced cleaning practices like soda blasting and emulsification.
  • Protein Residues – Kitchen flare-ups can often leave protein residues from food on surfaces like cabinets and countertops. These soils are characterized by their harsh odors and difficulty to clean.
