SERVPRO Provides Fire & Water Damage Restorations in Amityville

Whenever a fire breaks out inside your house, partially combusted particles in the form of smoke get released into the air. Most fires produce both wet and dry smoke while they burn. Dry smoke is created when the fire has a lot of oxygen and burns fast. Wet smoke gets created when the fire gets minimal oxygen and burns slowly.

Whenever our SERVPRO team conducts fire restoration in Amityville, we first inspect your entire structure for damage. We can perform a wipe test that tells us what surfaces were affected by dry smoke and which areas encountered wet smoke. Since typically wet smoke is harder to remove than dry smoke, we can use different methods on the various surfaces inside your home. Kitchen fires may have a protein-based fuel source, like meat or oils, that can be especially difficult to remove. These protein-based fires also may require specific odor removal techniques.

Depending on the type of surface affected, we can use either wet or dry-cleaning methods. For example, if porous surfaces such as wallpaper or unpainted drywall get affected by soot residues, we can use dry methods to remove soot, such as dry sponge cleaning. Or, if hardwood surfaces contain soot residues, then we can use specialized chemicals to break down and remove the soils.

Even if the fire was small, it could have produced a lot of wet smoke while the fuels were smoldering. Since residues created by wet smoke are very difficult to remove, the job is best left to the professionals at SERVPRO. After we complete our inspection of your entire structure, we can do the following to help:

  • Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration and Clean Up
  • Smoke Remediation
  • Water & Fire Damage Restorations
  • House Fire Clean Up

Whether a small fire or a large disaster, call SERVPRO of Amityville / Lindenhurst at (631) 319-1680.
