Fresno Residents, do you have questions about smoke?

5/29/2019 (Permalink)

Fire Damage Fresno Residents, do you have questions about smoke? This ceiling had fire, smoke, soot and water damage.

Here are some Smoke and Soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and the upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, while seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The soot sticks to the walls and anything it lands on.
  • The smell sticks to soft goods; like curtains, furniture and clothes
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Did you know there are Different Types of Smoke!

There are different types of smoke–wet, dry and protein. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire as well. We begin the restoration process with a test of the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. Cleaning procedures will be based on the information identified during pretesting. Here is some information on the different types of smoke:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor. 

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Our smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action. Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions.  We have the equipment, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Water Damage We Specialize in Basement Flooding Cleanup and Restoration here in Fresno The supply line under the kitchen sink broke penetrating the floor, going through the ceiling of the basement. Water flooded throughout the basement.

Fresno Residents with Basements

A basement flood can happen at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. If flood water is not handled quickly and properly, it can jeopardize your health and safety, and cause severe damage to your home’s structure. Remember, the longer you wait, the worse the problem will get.

Here are a few reasons why your Fresno basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more
