Fire & Smoke Damage

Call us: 206-902-6736

Once at a fire scene, we will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred.
Cleaning procedures will be based on the information identified during the pre-testing.

Types of smoke damage that we fix for homeowners and commercial properties:

  • Wet smoke residues: Result from smoldering fires with low heat. Residues are sticky, smeary and with pungent odors. Smoke residue can be difficult to clean.
  • Dry Smoke Residues: From fast burning fires at high temperatures. Residues are often dry, powdery, small, non-smeary smoke particles.
  • Protein Residues: Virtually invisible residues that discolor paints and varnishes. Protein residues also create an extremely pungent odor.
  • Other Types: Tear gas, fingerprint powder and fire extinguisher residues may also require smoke damage cleanup and restoration.
  • Fuel Oil Soot: Furnace puff backs distribute fuel oil soot.

Maybe you’re not sure how to choose a company to fix the mess after a fire or smoke damage. Keep in mind that insurance companies don’t require any specific company, you can choose who you work with. Call if you have questions.

DID YOU KNOW:  Most insurance policies have a clause that excludes them from financial responsibility if they feel that the policy holder ignored the situation promoting further damage.

Your home or business could have been wet for a month, but as soon as you are aware of the damage, it is your responsibility to take action.

Calling First Response is considered action taken by the insurance company.
