How Does SERVPRO Handle Fire Damage in Burley Kitchens?
Our team of technicians can provide you with a full break down on fire damage in Burley.
Among the various ways fire damage hits a residence, one of the most common and pungent is a protein fire. Frequently seen sources are a roast or turkey that catches on fire in the oven. When the oven is opened the oxygen rush fuels the fire even bigger, another common way this type of blaze occurs is from a pan with oil in it catching aflame and coming into contact with water which causes a chain reaction that makes the fire even more massive.
The misleading aspect of protein fire damage in a Burley home is that the residue left behind is difficult to see, but the odor is highly discernible which makes this type of fire loss a challenge to mitigate. Other aspects of the protein fire include:
- The entire fire loss area requires manual cleaning as wherever the residue lands, odor grows
- The high heat of the burn drives the scent into the structure and furnishings due to the nature of hot air to expand
- The protein residue may be in the paint on walls and ceilings, and it may require repainting or application of a sealant
When SERVPRO technicians handle this type of fire loss, we examine every item in the burn area to ensure we clean away the deposits. Special attention is paid to possessions with fabric as part of their design, such as upholstered chairs and window treatments. We have various methods, depending on the colorfastness of the material, to clean and deodorize furnishings, including pillows and curtains.
Odor control methods in the room as applied by our technicians range from thermal fogging which works exceptionally well for eradicating odors in porous items to equipment such as hydroxyl generators which safely neutralizes airborne particles.
