Types of Smoke Damage That Affect Your Sacramento Home

Most Sacramento homeowners could not tell you what smoke damage can do to their homes, let alone what differences exist between various types of smoke after a fire. Our highly-trained technicians have the expertise and the education to quickly access your property following a fire to make determinations such as the type of smoke damage to ensure the appropriate equipment is brought on site to restore the home quickly.

Understanding the difference between smoke types when you experience fire damage in your Sacramento home does not get the situation resolved any faster, but it can help to narrow the field for those experienced enough in restoration efforts to make a significant difference fast. Our technicians have extensive training show them the difference between the residues and causes of dry and wet smoke damages within your home, and what methods are the most effective for restoring these areas to get you back in your property quickly.

Wet smoke damage results from a fire that burned at a lower temperature, causing more of a smolder than a rapidly spreading blaze. These types of fires produce considerable smoke, which can seep into fabrics, furniture, and other areas not directly impacted by the spread of the fire itself. Our SERVPRO technicians have premier cleaning strategies to remove the thick coating and sour odor left behind by wet smoke.

Dry smoke is often the opposite, with its cause coming from rapidly spreading fires burning at very high heat. The spread of this situation produces a thinner smoke and a powdery residue. While much of the unaffected surfaces can get cleaned with traditional solvents and detergents, these types of fires often require our SERVPRO professionals to utilize controlled demolition techniques to prepare the area for reconstruction.

While understanding the types of smoke that could affect your home does not impact what occurs when a fire develops, it can help you to appreciate that not all fire restoration teams are the same. With our advanced equipment and highly-trained technicians, our SERVPRO of North Sacramento rapid response team can clean up the mess fast. Call us today at (916) 587-3438.
