How Does Smoke Damage Influence Restoration in Melrose Homes?
Post-fire cleanup must begin as soon as possible in Melrose properties.
The decomposition of materials during combustion can produce smoke and solid particles. When circulating in the environment after a fire, these particles can form a formidable residue layer on exposed surfaces and contents. Every combustion event requires fuel, oxygen, and heat. The underlying material, atmospheric conditions, and the balance of these elements impact the presence of:
- Dry Smoke
- Wet Smoke
- Fuel/Oil Smoke
- Protein Residues
How Can SERVPRO Clean Smoke Damage from Affected Surfaces?
Inspections of the property can help determine where smoke damage exists for fire damage restoration in Melrose homes. Both the location of the damage and the condition of the affected material play a role in its salvageability and preservation. Solvents and detergents work to loosen soils so that wet cleaning practices can be effective. However, when residues are too thick or damaging, controlled demolition with our general contracting license is also possible.
Smoke damage remains to be one of the most challenging obstacles for fire-damaged homes and businesses. With how fast these situations can get out of control, our SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose team can take deliberate steps to mitigate and restore fire and smoke damage in your house.
