Fire & Smoke Damage Cleanup and Restoration

3/2/2020 (Permalink)

Upon arriving at your home after a fire, SERVPRO of McKinney professionals will inspect every room in your home to look for fire and smoke damage. Fire damage is obvious, so after the inspection our reconstruction manager will provide a written estimate to you and your insurance company to rebuild the fire damaged parts of your home.

Smoke and soot damage is not always obvious, so our production team will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The types of soot include:

  • Wet Smoke Residues result from smoldering fires with low heat. Residues are sticky, smeary and with pungent odors.  Smoke webs can be difficult to clean.
  • Dry Smoke Residues result from fast burning fires at high temperatures. Residues are often dry, powdery, small, non-smearing smoke particles.
  • Protein Residues are virtually invisible residues that discolor paints and varnishes and have an extremely pungent odor.
  • Fuel Oil Soot is from furnace puff backs that distribute fuel oil soot.
  • Other Types of Residues, such as fire extinguisher residues, will also need cleanup.

Cleaning procedures will be based on the information identified during the smoke damage pretesting. 

If you have fire or smoke damage in your home, call SERVPRO of McKinney at 469-714-4955.
