Fire And Smoke Damage
Our Fire and smoke damage restoration specialists can respond quickly and efficiently to assess in detail the extent of the damage and recommend a schedule of remedial works.
Because smoke particles are generally acidic and carcinogenic they can corrode the property over time and must therefore be removed completely. To avoid the risk of damage to health, the clean up operation must be undertaken properly, with care using specialist equipment. The clean up team must also be equipped with an adequate arsenal of personal protective equipment.
Propserv SDS will analyse the the extent of the fire and smoke damage, identify the types of damage caused and the most effective remedial solution. We will provide a comprehensive report for each case, detailing the damage, its cause and a recommended repair schedule. We will then provide the assistance and equipment required during the restoration and recovery process.
Here are a few examples of the different types of smoke damage.
Wet Smoke Damage– Typically smouldering and strong odour, caused by low heat.
Dry Smoke Damage– High temperature, fast burning fires.
Protein Damage– Because the results are somtimes invisible, it is possible that this type of damage goes undetected. Protein damage can leave a pungent odour and paint and varnished surfaces can become discoloured.
Other Types– There are many other types of fire damage, the most common being residue from fire extinguishers, tear gas and fuel oil soot.
Removal of fire and smoke damaged debris
Materials damaged by smoke and direct fire must be assessed from a structural perspective. Structurally unsound materials must be replaced but minor damage (smoke and soot) can be repaired through the use of our state of the art machinery. HEPA Vacuums and industrial strength chemicals should be applied to every inch of the affected areas to restore them to their original state.
