We Put The Flames Of Worry Out In Lake Worth After A Fire

A room covered in soot and smoke damage after a fire We have the experience and expertise to handle your fire damage disaster. Our technicians are available day or night, so call right away.

Why is there so Much Smoke Residue and Little Fire damage

Every fire burns differently. Fire burn profiles depend on the material that is being consumed by the fire. The amount of oxygen available to fuel the fire also affects smoke production. Fires with lots of oxygen tend to burn faster and hotter. There can be a great deal of fire damage and little smoke damage with these fires. Hot fires produce less smoke residue. Burning material that smolders receives less oxygen, produces more smoke residue which is distributed throughout the home.

SERVPRO can help with smoke damage as well as fire damage in your Lake Worth home. We can assess the situation, and prepare a plan to restore your home, remove damaged materials as well as the smoke odors in your home. The residue is deposited on surfaces within your home as air currents carry partially burned residue throughout your house. The material can be oily and easily smears if touched causing increased cleaning challenges.
