Fires causes a mess everywhere!
Smoke and soot facts:
- Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
- Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
- The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.
Different Types of Smoke
There are two different types of smoke–wet and dry. As a result, there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Big Bear/Lake Arrowhead/NE Rancho Cucamonga will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting.
