SERVPRO Handles Smoke Damage in Riverhead Properties Seriously to Prevent Health or Structural Issues

In the aftermath of a fire, most people focus on the deterioration of materials from the effects of the flames and heat. However, smoke damage can also be dangerous. The combustion process produces a combination of fine residues and dangerous chemicals which adhere to surfaces. Without proper restoration procedures, such materials can pose health risks to the occupants.

Incorporating smoke residue management into the fire damage restoration efforts in Riverhead helps prevent many future problems. For instance, soot has corrosive properties that can ruin finishes or damage metallic items through rusting. 

Apart from affecting the structure, light smoke residues left within the structure can escape into the air and, if breathed in, can cause respiratory issues. The best way to prevent such outcomes is to clean the property thoroughly. Our SERVPRO technicians use various approaches to capture the residues, including cleaning surfaces with chemical sponges and vacuuming soiled areas. We also open up assemblies such as cabinets and walls to reach all hidden residues when performing:

  • Fire restoration
  • House fire clean up
  • Water & fire damage restorations
