Cocoa Beach smoke damage can be devastating to a home or business.

Smoke and Fire Damage in Cocoa Beach

Cocoa Beach smoke damage can be devastating to a home or business. It travels in ways that damage can be done far from the original fire. It travels upward from the heat to cooler areas, up a flight of stairs or through pipes or ducts to other areas. It can also travel along plumbing paths, through openings for the pipes.

There are several types of smoke:
1. Dry smoke which comes from fast-burning substances like wood and paper, giving off high temperatures and leaving powdery residue.
2. Wet smoke is emitted from plastic, synthetics, rubber and other substances, and burns at lower heat. The burning items smolder, may be sticky and smeary, and gives off a pungent odor. It is more difficult to clean. Using the wrong cleaner on wet smoke can make the damage worse.
3. Protein fire residue comes from the evaporation of materials, rather than an open Cocoa Beach Fire. It is invisible in the air, but it discolors walls, varnishes, artwork and more. It gives off an extremely pungent odor.
4. Fuel oil soot occurs when a furnace puffs back, creating soot damage to the rooms affected. SERVPRO can assess and repair the fire damage quickly.
5. Fire extinguisher, fingerprint powder, and tear gas are examples of the many other causes of damaging residue that can be cleaned efficiently by SERVPRO.

SERVPRO professionals are trained in water and fire damage restoration, including pervasive odor removal, deep cleaning of carpets, upholstery, draperies, walls, woodwork, ceilings, floors and more. They know the structure of buildings and how smoke travels through it. They know the properties of smoke and how a particular cleaning and restoring is based on it. SERVPRO’s professionals are trained and experienced in cleaning and restoring quickly, and will bring items back to pre-fire condition if possible. Items will be pretested for restorability.

Many other items can be restored, such as electronics, art, kitchen items, bedding, clothing, bric-a-brac and more. Cocoa Beach smoke can also damage plumbing, fabrics, paper documents and books.

SERVPRO professionals are also equipped to remove odors and use the most up-to-date equipment. An ultra-low volume fogger and a thermal fogger both neutralize odor causing particles.
