Common Causes of Smoke Damage at Your Home or Office

Kitchen Fire: A stovetop fire while cooking in your kitchen or office break room can cause huge amounts of black smoke that damages the surrounding walls and other areas. When caught early, these fires tend to be small. But they can quickly cause the kitchen area to smell like smoke. When abated properly, this odor can be eliminated within a few days.

Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration

Most cooking-related fires involve burnt meat, and we will use a cleaning agent that removes the protein smell from walls, ceilings, countertops, and floors. We’ll then set up Air Filtration Devices (AFDs) outfitted with charcoal-based filters that bond with smoke particulates to remove 100% of the smoke particulates. It may take multiple days, but the odor will soon be gone.

Electrical Fire: Bad wiring, old fixtures, outdated appliances, and damaged electrical outlets are leading causes of electrical fires. These fires tend to produce a smell of burnt plastic. These fires do not produce smoke mixed with proteins, but the abatement and cleaning process is similar. AFDs work to purify the air while technicians wipe down surfaces with what’s called a “chem-sponge”. These sponges help lift smoke particulates off surfaces.

The Good News: When treated by the proven professionals from United Fire & Water, a smoke-damaged structure can be completely restored because of our fire damage restoration experts. While this is a labor-intensive process, most insurance policies cover our services 100%. Give us a call. We’re here to help.

Common Causes of Smoke Damages

Things to Do in the Event of a Fire

  • Is the fire out? If not, immediately evacuate the home or office and call 911. Then reach out to United at 225-401-6568.
  • When the fire has been completely extinguished, turn off your heating/cooling system immediately to prevent the smoke from being sucked into the air ducts and pumped into other rooms.
  • Open doors and windows to allow fresh air is to circulate. If you have portable fans, set them by open doors or windows, letting them blow the smoke-filled air outside. Also, turn on your stove’s exhaust fan.
