Smoke and Soot Damage

Dryer fire in University Park, IL.

Fuel, Oxygen, and heat is the perfect storm for complete combustion. However usually a complete combustion does not occur in a house fire, smoke residue or soot is produced. Soot is the product of incomplete combustion. Smoke is the fuel that didn’t burn, made visible by the presence of carbon and other material.

Smoke may seem to dissipate quickly after a fire, but the reality is the rapid cooling of incomplete combustion leaves a film and a odor that penetrates throughout the building. This film can cause discoloration, corrosion, and overall damage.

We at SERVPRO understand that, when a fire occurs, lives are suddenly turned around. Fire is an unpredictable beast that can result in a great deal of loss. The restoration industry has learned that the longer a structure is allowed to remain affected by smoke and soot, the cost incurred increases drastically. Therefore, it is so critical to respond quickly. It is our priority to return the structure to a preloss condition, without causing any additional damage.
