A Smell Worse Than Burnt Popcorn

A Smell Worse Than Burnt Popcorn

Everyone knows the smell of burnt plastic. That was the smell that coupled with the fire damage shown here. The funny part is that the fire didn’t come from the inside of the microwave, it came from a pan below the microwave. Our team came in to clean up the smoke damage and get the burnt plastic smell out of the kitchen.

Fire Damage Before & After

Fire Damage Before & After

There was a home that we were called out to that had some fire damage. There were smoke and soot that affected a good amount of the contents of the house and the majority of the surfaces inside the house. Our teams love a challenge, and cleaning smoke and soot off of ceilings is definitely one. In the image above, you can see just how much effort is put into cleaning. The section that has already been tackled is white again, contrasting greatly from the section that is still gray and dirty.

SERVPRO® is always happy to help with a fire damaged building. It’s what we do!

Burn House Training

Burn House Training

Training is an important part of any job. However, it becomes the most important thing when the job you do can be the difference between life and death. That is why we jumped at the opportunity to help with the training done by the Central Illinois Fire Investigation Association (CIFIA). We constructed five small burn houses to help train the Central Illinois Fire Professionals, and those of us who could attend the training day got to go and watch.

We are so happy that we got the opportunity and that the CIFIA chose us to help them out! We’re happy that they know that we’re always Here to Help®.

Dryer Fire

Dryer Fire

A dryer’s job is to dry your clothes - not fry your clothes. The nightmare-inducing image shown here is that of a dryer which did just that, causing damage not only to the machine but to the area around the machine as well. When all of this happened, the client called us because they needed help getting fire mess cleaned up and the other affected areas (like the wall) fixed up as well. Our SERVPRO® Heroes gladly came in and got the job done.

Mattress Cleaning After Fire Damage

Mattress Cleaning After Fire Damage

Mattresses are difficult to live without and pretty costly to replace. When you experience damages from water or fire, you shouldn’t always have to worry about replacing your mattress. SERVPRO® can help by cleaning damage from water issues or from smoke and soot. The mattress pictured here suffered from soot damage and you can see a clear difference in what it looked like before and after our cleaning crew took care of it. You can sleep soundly knowing that we are Here to Help®.

Fire Damage Cleanup

Fire Damage Cleanup

We can never say enough that fire damage is not restricted to directly affected areas. While you’re checking the space around whatever started the fire, it’s important to remember to check the rest of the house for smoke/soot damage. This image is a good example of the type of soot damage that can be left by a fire. Fire damage can leave a mess as bad as the thick layer pictured here or as light as a smoke smell throughout the rest of the building. Whatever the case, it’s best to stay as vigilant as possible after a fire.
