Caldwell's Fire Damage Restoration Specialists
Fire & Smoke Cleanup is a Cornerstone of SERVPRO Services in Caldwell
Accidents do happen, and sometimes they come in the form of a house fire. It does not matter whether the fire that started inside your Caldwell townhome was large or small, damage likely occurs. Flames and heat can burn contents and building materials, but smoke sometimes causes more problems than the fire itself.
Smoke coming from an indoor fire spreads all over your townhouse leaving deposits of soot on various surfaces. Whenever you are dealing with any smoke damage, it is wise to call SERVPRO's fire damage technicians in Caldwell. Our crews are IICRC certified and know where smoke travels inside a structure.
Our crews understand the behavior of smoke well to aid them in the fire damage restoration process. Some factors affect how much soot gets deposited on your home's walls and ceilings and where the soot collects. Our skilled professionals at SERVPRO have the necessary training and experience to track where smoke travels and what surfaces it soils with soot.
Two main factors that affect where the smoke goes are the temperature of the smoke and the temperature of the surface. Heat rises as cooler air pushes downward causing smoke to move upward and stick on colder surfaces first. Smoke then travels with the natural airflow of the building bouncing off and going through objects like closed doors. Soot residue sometimes builds up in small areas the smoke travels through such as door cracks.
Often ionization and magnetism cause soot to build up thicker than in other places nearby. Some smoke particles such as those that come from burnt plastic materials get electrically charged causing them to stick to metal objects. Many times electrically charged smoke particles create smoke webs that look like black spider webs. Other times magnetism causes soot particles to stick to drywall nails causing nail pops that make it look like the nail is extending out of the drywall when it is not.
When restoring your home after a fire, our professionals make sure they mitigate all the places smoke damaged. Make sure all of the smoke damage present in your dwelling gets remediated correctly and call SERVPRO of Nampa / Caldwell at (208) 466-5000 for help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
