Can a Raleigh Kitchen Be Restored After a Cooking Fire?

7/13/2021 (Permalink)

Kitchens are common sources of fire damage. Call SERVPRO to clean the smoke and soot damage.

SERVPRO Provides Fire Restoration in Raleigh Using Professional Equipment & Cleaning Products

Kitchen fires are often quickly contained and may not be as damaging as house fires but can still leave homeowners with a huge mess. Residue settles on the ceiling, on walls, and appliances. Foul odors quickly spread throughout the home. 

Is Professional Help Needed for a Cooking Fire?

Cooking fires in Raleigh are different from other fires. They often involve protein, such as skillet with streaks going up in flames, spreading a fine mist everywhere, leaving a coating not easily seen. Soot residue can damage porous surfaces, which is why professional fire restoration in Raleigh is needed when a cooking fire occurs. It is not something to attempt to clean on your own. Our IICRC experts employ several steps when dealing with kitchen fires. They include:

  • Inspection of the area to determine the extent of the smoke and soot damage
  • Identifying the residues present and the needed cleaning methods
  • Identifying the types of surfaces and the appropriate cleaning agents required
  • Capturing and cleaning residues
  • Final repair and restoration

DIY Cleaning Methods Are Not a Good Idea

It may sound easy to clean the walls and ceiling yourself, but you can end up with even worse damage if you use the wrong products. We know which cleaning agents to use to deal with the residue present. We tackle the situation with:

  • Air scrubbers to deal with airborne particulates
  • Immersion cleaning for non-porous items damaged by smoke
  • Thermal foggers for neutralizing odors

Fire restoration is what SERVPRO does, and we do it well. Contact SERVPRO of Southeast Raleigh / Garner at (919) 615-1179 smoke remediation and more.
