Venice Beach, SERVPRO, and the Art of Smoke Damage Cleanup
Different Types of Smoke Damage to Your Venice Beach Home
As you might already be aware, disasters that impact your Venice Beach property do not always occur in the way you could expect. Something as damaging as fire can spread quickly throughout your property and affect multiple areas and present many unique effects for restoration teams to overcome. Understanding how to restore your home and make the process as fast as possible requires some assessment knowledge to learn the type of damages and the full measure of their spread throughout the property.
For example, the fire damages to your Venice Beach home could present multiple types of smoke damages. Many homeowners mistakenly believe that smoke from the fire is the same regardless of the cause and location but overcoming the different types possible requires specific restoration tools and techniques. Most often, smoke damage gets classified into two categories: wet and dry smoke. Our SERVPRO professionals can handle either of these, but a thorough initial inspection is necessary to determine the full measure of damages, what equipment is necessary to overcome it, and what personnel we need to handle the situation fast.
These two primary categories of smoke damage relate to the heat with which the fire burns within the property. Dry smoke, for example, comes from excessive heat in a drier environment. This variety of smoke damage often gets categorized as thin and powdery from the effects it leaves behind on the property. Our premier cleaning services can make short work of this residue with high-powered vacuums and solvents.
Wet smoke damages can often prove more challenging for our IICRC certified SERVPRO professionals, but we have the tools and expertise to handle this efficiently as well. This variety produces much more smoke, which can leave a coating on surfaces and the contents of the affected areas, not to mention, produce a very harsh odor for our technicians to overcome with deodorizing equipment like our thermal foggers.
While not every fire in the area is going to be the same, our approach to handling these emergencies efficiently to limit our impact on your life never changes. Our SERVPRO of Santa Monica / Venice Beach fire restoration technicians have the extensive training and leading equipment to help. Give us a call whenever disaster strikes at (310) 395-9050.
