After a fire, it is evident that you would have to take steps to figure out what you could potentially salvage. Yet, this is not exactly the topic that we are going to want to cover here. There are actually, different scenarios where you could potentially end up with smoke damage. Without a major fire having to be involved in the mix. It is not uncommon to see smoke damage naturally occurring in kitchens and BBQ spots. The main issue that we tend to see is that these minor instances, that are not properly taken care of can be the reason why major fires actually develop.
How We Deal with Smoke Damage
The first thing that has to be done to help in smoke remediation is to allow the area to “breathe”. We are going to be looking for a higher degree of airflow. Mainly, because of the fact that closed quarters can increase the temperature and therefore, increase the likelihood of a full-blown fire developing from the ashes. The second thing that we are going to need to do is to remove as much of the remaining debris that is still highly flammable. We can do this by vacuuming in certain areas, pressure washing, and other methods that can certainly help decrease the possibility of full-blown fire damage.
If we are talking smoke damage after a fire, then it is important to act fast to salvage what can be salvaged and prevent the area from catching on fire again. On the other hand, if we are dealing with “natural” smoke damage it is important to clean these areas regularly to lower the risks of a potential fire. To do this, we can provide thorough cleaning services. Once, we are comfortable that the area is essentially fireproof, then we could venture into repainting and reconditioning the area in general!
