How Do I Get Rid of Protein Fire Damage in My Kitchen?
SERVPRO Technicians Have Specialized Cleaners Available to Restore Your Tallahassee Home After Fire Damage
Kitchen fire damage is easily the most common type that occurs in homes today and accounts for an estimated 49% of home fires in Tallahassee. On top of that, residues and odors from the fire can be dispersed throughout your home through your vents, leaving you with more cleanup than you can easily handle.
If you need a team that can respond quickly to fire damage in your Tallahassee home’s kitchen, SERVPRO technicians are prepared to help. This crew offers both fire and water damage mitigation tools, as well as rebuilding services, to return your home to a safe and comfortable preloss condition.
What Type of Fire Extinguisher Is Best for Kitchen Fire Damage?
- Stick to a lightweight extinguisher. A five-pound extinguisher may run out faster, but it will be easier to carry and use when you need it.
- Type B is the way to go. Type A extinguishers are made to tackle fires caused by conventional solids like wood and paper. Type B, on the other hand, is targeted at oil and grease fires in homes. Some homeowners might prefer Type K, but these extinguishers are designed for commercial kitchens.
- Consider more than one extinguishing method. Try installing a small magnetic extinguisher to put on your range hood that automatically dispenses baking soda upon exposure to flame. If your range hood is not magnetic, many brands offer mounting kits to accommodate you.
How Does SERVPRO Remove Fire Damage Residues from My Kitchen?
SERVPRO technicians use a broad selection of tools to address different types of fire damage residues. For example, protein residues require specialized enzyme digesters to convert these foul-smelling, filmy coatings into water-soluble byproducts. These cleaners remove the protein enzymes that can cause odors to aid in odor control efforts.
