We Have Fire Damage Restoration Strategies for Patchogue Homes After Multiple Types of Smoke Damage. 

Soot can be among the most challenging obstacles for fire damage restoration. With many variables and factors, including the types of materials impacted by the spreading soils, smoke remediation choices can vary considerably. 

Types of Smoke Damage Effects

The type of smoke and fire damage in Patchogue homes determines the need for specific cleaning and restoration services. Not all compositions of smoke residues require the same kind of cleanup process. Wet smoke, for example, is a thick and formidable residue that requires wet cleaning with detergent to trap soils for removal. The four main types of smoke damage include:

  • Wet Smoke 
  • Dry Smoke 
  • Protein Smoke
  • Furnace Puffback

Airborne Soot Particles

When soot solids become airborne and aerosolized by the combustion process, these circulating contaminants create a volatile environment for occupants of the house and responding technicians. For this reason, it is customary to get practices like air filtration started as soon as possible to regulate the concentrations of carcinogenic particles. We have multiple HEPA filtration products, though we often lean on hydroxyl generators for this effort as they also work to reduce the concentration and severity of smoke malodors.

Settled Soils on Surfaces

Another form of soot damage that experienced professionals like our SERVPRO team must address is clearing settled soils on exposed building materials and contents. Much of this cleaning can happen on-site when prolonged exposure has not yet occurred. We also provide off-site recovery for contents and a wide variety of dry and wet cleaning solutions to loosen soils on material surfaces and wipe them clean.

Understanding how soot impacts your home and business after fire damages can be enough to express the need for professional restoration and cleaning. We have experienced technicians heavily trained in fire and smoke damage restoration, including removing and managing airborne threats and soot solids.
