SERVPRO of Gold Coast/Lincoln Park/Lakeview

There is only one thing at which most human beings are truly bad at doing. Unfortunately, that one thing is paying attention for sustained periods of time, especially if it is something that is repetitive or uninteresting. While many people do find cooking interesting, it is something most of us must do daily, which means it’s easy to get distracted.

Even if the fire damage is confined to the kitchen, even if it is confined to a small area of the kitchen, that damage can be harder to get rid of than you might imagine, even if you imagine it’s difficult.

When eau de kitchen towel or the remains of chicken a la forgot all to check on it are destined to end up as part of the family legend rather than a meal, it’s probably time to call for professional help, and we don’t just mean from a favorite sandwich shop that delivers. SERVPRO of Gold Coast/Lincoln Park/Lakeview is a franchise professional that can help restore your kitchen or your home to its pre-fire-damage condition.

Kitchen Fires are Difficult Fires

The smoke from kitchen fires tends to be largely from protein, which is greasy, odorous (a friendlier word than “smelly” and tenacious a friendlier word than “stubborn” or “hard to get rid of because it seems to wipe off with a wet towel, but then more of it appears later, which is annoying.” “Tenacious” is also more efficient.

Just to make your life more difficult, once a house fire spreads, it tends to include more than one kind of smoke. Contemporary building materials and belongings include plastics and other materials that burn hotter than older materials such as wood or cotton, and the smoke tends to be heavier, and often more toxic than the older materials as well.

Each type of smoke requires its own cleaning method, and the methods vary depending on the surfaces. Using the wrong cleaning techniques and solutions may drive smoke particles deeper into the surface or may destroy the material being cleaned.

That’s why our team members earn certifications in cleaning and in restoration from fire and smoke damage before going out on jobs.

We work to make the damage “Like it never even happened.”
