Our Morristown Fire Damage Strategy May Depend on What Was in the Oven

There are many different types of fires that can happen in a home, and each produces a unique kind of Smoke Damage. SERVPRO technicians must learn to identify different varieties of smoke to treat the affected house.

One of the most common sources of fire damage in Morristown is the kitchen. Kitchen fires can start from different appliances and food sources, generating various types of smoke in the process. Smoke remediation strategies center around four broad categories:

  • Dry smoke residues
  • Wet smoke residues
  • Protein residues
  • Fuel oil soot

We can classify most fires as mostly dry or mostly wet. Dry smoke residues are often easier to remove because they do not penetrate materials as well as wet smoke residues. Wet smoke residues, by contrast, often require more intensive thermal fogging techniques to eliminate odors.

One of the most challenging fire and smoke damage types that a SERVPRO technician may encounter is a protein residue fire. These fires result from burned meat, fish, and poultry. Odors from protein fires can be very difficult to remove and may permeate the entire home, requiring large-scale fogging efforts and repeated intensive scrubbing to combat. SERVPRO technicians can use hydroxyl generators and HEPA filtered air scrubbers as initial treatments for clean air quality restoration.
