Does smoke color influence the resultant damage from Pensacola fires?
SERVPRO Understands the Implications of Different Smoke Characteristics to the Fire Damage Restoration Process in Pensacola Properties
Smoke is one of the predictable byproducts of fires in homes. However, most people are not aware of the different variations of smoke produced, and the implications they might have on a property. SERVPRO helps cleanup damage from all types of smoke in Pensacola properties.
Which colors does smoke commonly exhibit?
You can simplify the process of fire damage restoration in your Pensacola home if you are observant enough to note the color of smoke emitted from your property as fire burns. The common color variations include:
- Black smoke
- White smoke
- Grey smoke
Smoke contains different substances, including aerosols, particulate matter, and moisture. When smoke looks whitish, it is an indicator of a higher percentage of aerosols or water vapor in its composition. The outcome under such circumstances may involve a widespread accumulation of wet smoke residues on surfaces. Our SERVPRO crews can help you deal with the challenging cleanup process using advanced approaches such as soda blasting or surface stripping.
How damaging is a fire burning with black smoke?
Dark smoke can indicate several things, including:
- Incomplete combustion of materials fueling the fire
- Burning of synthetic materials
- The fire being highly volatile
Various challenges can arise after you notice a fire burning with thick dark smoke. For instance, the extreme heat from the scorching fire can push residues deeper into surfaces, making it tougher to clean the area or remove odors. The fire might also leave thick layers of residues all over the property, burdening you with extract cleaning steps.
Our SERVPRO technicians prepare well to handle such cleaning situations with various resources, such as automated agitation equipment. We also have specially formulated cleaning products that help strip down residues from surfaces faster.
Smoke characteristics, including its color, connect with many aspects of the resulting damage. An experienced team from SERVPRO of West Pensacola can help you address the challenges the situations present. Call us at (850) 469-1160. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
