Remediation of Smoke Damage is Not a Do-it-Yourself Job

Smoke damage is often deceptive. The most common types of fires leave residues that rapidly get worse over time, both in area and in the amount of damage it causes. The same type of residue requires different cleaning techniques across a variety of materials. What works on most kinds of carpet, for example, might cause more damage to other textiles.

SERVPRO of Moorhead technicians earn certifications, through training and experience, in any of several areas, including cleaning/disinfecting, remediation, and restoration techniques. We can help restore belongings and structures that non-professionals may write off as non-salvageable.

Further, the type of smoke damage is not always obvious to casual observers and, depending on the size and location of the fire, there may be more than one kind of smoke damage in one building.

Finally, residue from the fire and the cleaning and disinfection chemicals often contains substances that require special training and equipment for use. At SERVPRO of Moorhead, we protect your family members, our employees, and the environment.

It makes sense that many insurance companies require homeowners hire professional services to remediate smoke damage after a home fire.

House Fires in the Winter

The United States Fire Administration (USFA) reports that the number of structural fires in residential buildings goes up in the winter. These fires are not limited to the holiday season.

Non-festive causes include:

  • Use of space heaters
  • Fireplaces
  • Electric blankets
  • Winter air holds less moisture, contributing to greater likelihood of electrical fires, especially in older homes

Time out for Trivia

We like to brag in Minnesota about two of our seasons being “Winter and Still Winter”, so you may know these facts about snow. Just in case you needed a reminder, here are some facts for the trivia stockpile.

Fun Facts about Snow:

  • While we think of Hawaii as a snow-free state, snow can fall there any time of the year at its highest points, including Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, and Haleakala
  • Snow can fall at temperatures as high as 46 degrees F if the humidity is quite low
  • The National Snow & Ice Data Center classifies snow as a mineral because it is a naturally occurring solid, inorganically formed, and has a definite chemical composition
