Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Did you know there were different types of Smoke?

3/7/2022 (Permalink)

There are different components of a fire that can cause 2 different types of smoke damage within your home or business.   Damage can be caused by both “wet” and/or “dry” smoke by materials such as the type of material burning, the level of oxygen present during the fire, and how fast and hot the fire is burning.  SERVPRO of Bennington & Rutland Counties technicians are trained to identify and clean either smoke damage situation properly.

When a fire burns extremely hot and causes dry particles to be deposited on any remaining structure this is considered dry smoke.  When a fire is a slow smoldering fire, which causes liquids to vaporize and seep into the remaining area, that is considered a wet smoke.

When dry smoke is the source of damage, cleaning generally is more manageable as well as odor more easily remediated.  Wet smoke causing the damage can become more complicated and involves SERVPRO formulated solutions to remedy to stains and odor. 

If you’ve had a fire in your home call SERVPRO of Bennington & Rutland counties.  Our experienced professionals are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week! (802) 375-1500
