SERVPRO Technicians Provide Fire Damage Cleanup for Lenoir City Homes Affected By Kitchen Fires

Kitchen appliance fires in the home can be overwhelming to deal with, especially for Lenoir City homeowners cooking for loved ones on top of managing work and day-to-day tasks. Unfortunately, however, home cleaning products are not designed to tackle the complexities of fire and smoke residues.

When kitchen fire damage occurs in your Lenoir City home, SERVPRO technicians are ready to bring you rapid mitigation, repair, and restoration that restores your kitchen while minimizing loss of belongings.

Understanding Wet and Dry Smoke in Fire Damage

Fire damage can generate wet or dry smoke, depending on the type of material burned. Dry wood, paper, and cotton or wool, for example, typically produce a dry smoke from fast-burning, high-temperature flames. Synthetic materials, like foam rubber and plastics, produce low-temperature, slow-burning fires that leave behind greasy deposits that are harder to clean.

Several other factors affect the type of residues in a kitchen fire, including:
• The flame’s temperature and access to oxygen
• Burning speed
• Presence of combusted proteins

How SERVPRO Removes Kitchen Fire Damage From Your Residence

If the catalyst of the fire is an appliance failure, the resultant wet residues and aerosols require more cleanup than their drier counterparts. SERVPRO techs typically work from ceiling to floor, addressing dry, light soils before moving on to more heavy-duty cleanup measures.

• Venetian blinds and other materials might require immersion in an ultrasonic tank filled with water and cleaning solution to remove residues thoroughly.
• Protein residues from burnt animal proteins require enzyme digesters to mitigate odors and to alter these hard-to-clean deposits for easy sanitation chemically.
• The air in your home can be cleaned with HEPA-filter air scrubbers designed to catch soot particles and other impurities in the air.
