How SERVPRO Restores Protein Fire Damage in Santa Monica

11/19/2019 (Permalink)

Kitchen fires are a common occurrence. Call SERVPRO for fast and effective remediation.

Eliminating Protein Fire Damage in a Santa Monica Kitchen

A fire department in the US responds to a fire somewhere every 24 seconds, with home fires occurring every 87 seconds. Not only are these types of disasters highly damaging, but they damage structures quickly, leaving homeowners with a huge mess to clean up after the fact. Without proper mitigation, this can cause additional stress for homeowners to endure. Worse still, if the fire results from cooking proteins, there can be long-lasting odors that are challenging for homeowners to clean.

If fire damage in your Santa Monica home throws a wrench in your Thanksgiving dinner plans, SERVPRO technicians can be at your property within hours of your call to start mitigating the damage. This way, you and your family can enjoy a safe and comfortable home that is free of odors and residues. Your local SERVPRO dedicates itself to bring you the service that you expect from an IICRC-certified team that handles a variety of fire-related disaster specialties, including odor control.

How Protein Residues Affect Homes

Almost two-thirds of all house fires result from food or other cooking items catching on fire. The visible damage might not be significant, but protein smoke leaves other things for homeowners with which to worry. This substance is a colorless residue that sits on walls and can slowly break down structures, including paints and varnishes. On top of that, burnt proteins have a very distinct and unpleasant odor that needs thorough mitigation to eliminate. The longer this film sits, the more the protein odor can spread, even traveling through ventilation systems, which can make it even more difficult to root it out at the source.

SERVPRO Eliminates Protein Fire Odors

When combating odors from fire damage and proteins, we use a variety of methods. Thermal fogging, or counteractant deodorization, is one of the most common techniques for addressing fire damage. This method implements solvent-based deodorizers that work in the same way as smoke penetrates surfaces during a fire. These solvents then chemically combine with odor-causing particles to destroy them. Commercial-grade ventilation fans can exchange indoor and outdoor air before and after deodorizing to ensure maximum safety for technicians and homeowners alike.
