Smoke billowing out of a window. Smoke can devour a property, call SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst for assistance today.

SERVPRO is a Fire Damage Restoration Provider that Can Help Remove Smoke Staining from your Lindenhurst Home

Understanding the behavior of smoke and how it affects the structure of your home is an exact science. The materials used in home construction are typically natural materials that produce nitrogen oxides. These are usually in the form of dry powdery smoke deposits. Non-organic materials, which may include adhesives, have sulfur which is typically greasy.

SERVPRO technicians can assist with:

  • Smoke damage 
  • Fire and smoke damage
  • Fire damaged homes

One other factor in the fire damage restoration of your Lindenhurst is the number of aerosols released. Aerosols are liquids suspended in smoke and can absorb odor or other particles causing unpleasant smells. The amount of aerosols depends mainly on the fire's temperature and the length of time that the fire was burning.

  • Dry residues typically carry fewer aerosols making standard odor removal procedures like fogging more effective.
  • Wet smokes may contain aerosols from varnishes and other synthetics, are odorous, and generally make contents non-salvageable. 
  • Wet smokes can sometimes be removed using a solvent but must be extensively pre-tested before usage.

Counteracting fire impact relies on a solid understanding of different residue types. Contact SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst for fire damage restoration technicians at (631) 319-1680.
