ASAP Will Handle Any Type of Smoke Damage in Phoenix and Surrounding Area
There are several types of smoke damage that impact a home or business in various ways. This means the crew you hire must be able to identify the specific damage and take the right course of action.
Wet Smoke Residues: This type of damage is always present when the fire department shows up and uses water to douse a fire. Wet smoke residues are easily absorbed in unfinished wood and fabrics. The moisture created when water mixes with toxic soot will cause significant damage and leave a strong odor.
Dry Smoke Residue: Dry smoke residue is created by fast-moving fires fed with plenty of oxygen. Dry smoke damage is typically easier to remove because it hasn’t soaked deeply into surfaces like wet smoke. The soot from a dry smoke fire is created by burned wood and other dry items.
Rubber and Plastic Smoke Damage: Residue and damage left by burning plastics and rubber can become toxic and very dangerous. These materials burn quickly and easily at lower temperatures and create heavy residues that can travel long distances. The toxic contents can cause significant damage to metals and other items.
Oven Fire Damage: Oven fires cause a distinct type of fire damage as well. In the industry, we call it protein smoke residue. This is usually present when an oven fire breaks out during the cooking of meat or poultry. Even when the damage is contained to a small area, it should always be cleaned and removed by a professional. Restoration after an oven fire requires the use of special knowledge, equipment and detergents.
Fuel Oil Soot: An oil furnace can cause damaging soot that creates a jet black, messy soot. When an oil heating system breaks down, it can cause a “puffback,” potentially covering an entire room with soot.
