How Smoke Behaves

Fire damage can often be a complicated problem to tackle due to the unique behavior of smoke. The different types of smoke formation, wet smoke and dry smoke-- results in different type of soot residue after a fire. The professionals at SERVPRO of East Brunswick / Princeton Meadows are thoroughly trained in their ability to identify different types of smokes as this knowledge is essential for proper restoration.

Understanding the type of smoke you are dealing with prior to beginning the actual restoration process allows our professionals to determine the best cleaning method for the situation.

Smoke travels and penetrates various cavities within the structure of your home, allowing for the buildup of hidden damage and odors.
