When Fire Strikes
Fire damage can strike at a moment’s notice, a property owner can be looking at immense clean up even if the physical damage may be minor such as a kitchen fire that is relatively small. A fire on the kitchen stove can leave behind a black greasy soot, char, odors and staining or a yellow fatty substance. When it comes to fire damages the material that consumed leaves behind its own distinctive residue when food or protein is consumed in a fire it will leave behind pungent odor along with a sticky residue. When plastics are involved the residue left behind will be a heavy thick black greasy residue that smears when touched, every fire damage presents its own challenge. The soot left behind will have an acidic content level high enough that left uncleaned can ruin items that could have been saved, For heavy soot situations a pre-cleaning with an alkaline based cleaning solution to neutralize the acid may be needed, odors are another aspect of a fire damage that may need to be addressed.
