Even small fires can leave behind a surprising amount of damage, not all of which is apparent at first (or fifth) glance. Smoke travels on the air currents even when the HVAC isn’t in use. When the HVAC is in use, we may see smoke particles in the air ducts and vents as well as throughout the house. The technicians at SERVPRO of Aitkin, Carlton & West St. Louis Counties are trained to look for smoke residue:

  • Upward from the flames
  • On the outside of windows
  • Behind drapes, on blinds
  • Around nail heads on the ceiling
  • On plastics

Smoke Damage is Real Damage

After the violence and devastation of a fire, smoke damage may seem like no big deal. The reality is that smoke can cause as much damage as a fire but over a longer period.

Smoke from residential fires:

  • Tends to be from cooking, and is therefore greasy, difficult to see, and difficult to clean
  • Consists of a variety of materials (from the structure, furniture, etc.), therefore the particles appear at different times
  • Is, like most fire residue, corrosive
  • Has a strong, persistent odor
  • Is largely invisible

The smoke can damage:

  • Wiring
  • Plumbing
  • Drywall and insulation
  • Paint
  • Metal
  • Fabric (including carpet)
  • Stone
  • Wood

It is also one of the most tenacious odors. Homeowners often scrub, spray disinfectants and even paint over the smoke-damaged areas only to find the odors coming back through the cleaning products, disinfectants, and paint odors.

Our teams have the training and the equipment to win the battles against fire and smoke damage, even the strong odors.

Ice Cream Trivia!

Sometimes direct translations do not work. “Chunky Monkey” ice cream didn’t sell in Japan because consumers didn’t want to eat monkeys. Who can blame them?
