Different Smokes for Different Folks

12/13/2021 (Permalink)

Different types of fires can cause two very different types of smoke damage that could affect your home or business. There are a few components that will determine if the damage was caused by “Wet” or “Dry” smoke: the level of oxygen present during the fire, what materials are burning, and/or how fast and hot the fire burns. The restoration professionals of SERVPRO of Columbia and Greene Counties are trained and prepared to identity and properly clean either smoke situation. Dry smoke is produced when a fire burns extremely hot causing dry particles to be deposited on any remaining structure. Cleaning of this type of smoke is typically more manageable and odor more easily remediated.  Wet smoke is the more challenging of smoke damage. This smoke is caused by a slow and smoldering fire which cause liquids to vaporize and seep into the remaining area.  Cleaning this type of smoke damage is much more complicated and involves specifically SERVPRO formulated solutions to remedy the stains and odor. Our SERVPRO of Columbia and Greene Counties team is made up of experienced cleaners and restorers that are ready to help you after a home fire. Call SERVPRO 24/7 at (518)943-8475 for all your remediation needs- especially after fire or smoke damage.
