Some Steps to Fire Damage Remediation Success In Helena
A Little Fire Damage in Helena Kitchen Gets Complete Cleanup
The kitchen is one of the most common areas where fire damage occurs in homes across the United States. Frequently seen situations involve protein-based fires emanating from food cooking in the oven, microwave, or a pan on the stove.
Unless water gets used to extinguish the blaze, particularly with hot oil, the fire damage in Helena kitchens is often minor, and homeowners usually wipe up the visible smoke residues themselves. This action can lead to more loss and grind odor-causing soot into surfaces.
Protein fires deposit a nearly invisible but very pungent residue around the kitchen area. Solvent-based cleaners get used by SERVPRO to release the grip the smoke damage has on surfaces and wipe cleanly away. In the case of dry smoke, the techs lift it away using specialized sponges without marring the surface they are cleaning.
Once the smoke and soot get wiped away, SERVPRO techs determine the nature of odor control applications that the kitchen needs. For light smoke odors, time-release gel pellets may be enough. When the scent left behind calls for more intense measures, they have equipment that neutralizes odors at the molecular level.
