Stove Top Fire

This family’s Vista home suffered from a fire caused by a stove fire. It’s always devastating when a family experiences a house fire, but SERVPRO of Escondido worked hard to recover the structure and contents. We were able to remove the soot and even the smell of the smoke from the home, so that the family returned to a safe, clean space. Our goal is always to make your home “Like it never even happened.” 

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure.
  • Smoke flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor.
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process.

Smoke Damage

When there is smoke damage in your home you may be able to smell it but you won't always see it. Our smoke sponges help us to see if there is smoke damage. We wipe the sponge on a wall that has suspected damage and if the sponge turns a darker color then it tells us that there is in fact damage to the walls. As you see in the picture this wall will need to be cleaned. Cleaning soot off of the walls will help alleviate the strong smoke smell as well so they can breathe nice clean air again.

Soot In The Attic

We clean attics too! Soot settles up there and leaves a lingering smell. Our crews get into the attic and clean it up so the home owners can breathe easy again.

Smoke On The Walls

Sometimes you can't see smoke/soot but you can smell it. We find smoke on walls by using a smoke sponge to pit up the soot on the walls and then we are able to see if there is soot in that particular area.

Clean Your Air With Our Machines

These are a few of the Air Scrubbers that we place in homes with fire damage so that the homeowner can breathe again. Smoke sits on walls and you can smell it. It can contribute to breathing problems and irritate the eyes, nose, and throat.

Fire Place Damage

In the Lilac Fire a lot of homes were damaged some by fire and some by smoke or both. This homes fire place had fire and smoke damage to the brick. We have special cleaning products and smoke sponges/cloths that clean this up without damaging the material.
