Accredited Disaster Mitigation Technicians Can Clean Fire Damage in Your Amherst Home

Kitchen fires in the Amherst area, depending on what is burning, can be slow-burning at low temperatures or fast-burning, high-heat flames that can diminish quickly with the help of a kitchen fire extinguisher. However, when fire proteins are thrown into the mix, these damages take on a new dimension of complexity that needs professional care for complete removal.

When protein fire damages your Amherst home’s kitchen and leaves behind hard-to-clean soot and foul odors, SERVPRO technicians stand ready to return your kitchen’s structure and contents to a preloss state. This team adheres to both local regulations and Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards for disaster mitigation to maintain your kitchen.

What Sets Protein Residues Apart from Other Types of Fire Damage?

When meat, poultry, or fish burns in a kitchen fire, it can impart almost invisible residues that are difficult to clean without professional intervention. Here is what you need to know about protein fires:

  • Burnt proteins can leave behind a distinctly rancid, meaty odor that can worsen with time.
  • Protein residues require extra care to mitigate because they can penetrate porous surfaces more deeply.
  • Resealing or repainting may be needed to eliminate the smell, even with a professional-grade cleaning.
  • If your kitchen has suffered a protein fire, avoid contacting surfaces affected by residues to minimize the spread of foul odors.

How Does SERVPRO Remove Protein Fire Damage from My Home?

The most important aspect of removing protein residues is altering them so that we can perform cleaning more effectively. SERVPRO accomplishes this with the help of enzyme digesters that “eat” protein soils and make them into water-soluble byproducts for easy cleaning water, ammonia, or detergent solutions.

SERVPRO of Merrimack wants to keep your home looking, “Like it never even happened.” Call (603) 262-9293 to begin the mitigation process.
