It shouldn’t have to provide electricity for the entire house, but it should have enough power to sustain those few pieces of equipment.

Learn About Wet Smoke vs Dry Smoke

3/13/2020 (Permalink)

While a home fire can wreak all sorts of fire damage havoc in a home, the smoke can cause just as much fire damage. However, did you know that there are two types of smoke? Wet smoke and dry smoke each have unique behavior and characteristics that affect your property in different ways.

Wet smoke and residue come from the burning of plastics and rubbers. Dry smoke and residue come from the burning of paper and wood. The major difference with the types of smoke is that dry smoke residue is very ashy and dry, while wet smoke smears. In addition to the types of smoke and fire damage, smoke behavior is important to take into account. Smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels. Smoke also tends to flow through plumbing, so when mitigating fire damages, there may be more damage to the pipes than expected. SERVPRO of NW Monroe County is a family-owned national franchise that specializes in both water and fire damages and are equipped to handle the aftermath of any home emergency.

Fire damages can be devastating, in the moment, or in the aftermath with the smoke damages. SERVPRO of NW Monroe County specializes in water and fire damage mitigation as well as commercial cleanings and mold remediation. If you have any questions, call the office at (585) 723-1990, visit the website, or find them on Facebook!
