Different Types of Home Fires and Their Effects

Different types of fires can cause various kinds of damage to your home. Understanding these differences is crucial for effective fire and smoke damage restoration. Here are some common types of fires:

Protein Fire: Occurs when food burns in the oven or on the stove, leaving behind strong burnt-food odors and smoke residue on surfaces and belongings.

Complex Fire: Results from the burning of multiple natural and synthetic items in your home, leaving greasy yellow residue on your belongings. Emergency corrosion mitigation is needed to protect vulnerable surfaces.

Natural Fire: Involves the burning of trees, shrubs, and bushes, with smoke seeping into the structure from outside. Smoke residue and odor linger.

Furnace Malfunction: Occurs when heating appliances like oil-fired furnaces malfunction, spreading smoke throughout the property.

  • Persistent Odors: Lingering smoke odors can make it difficult to return to normal life.
  • Surface Discoloration: Walls and surfaces can become discolored within minutes of the fire.
  • Appliance Damage: Kitchen appliances can suffer irreversible damage within hours.
  • Glass and Metal Damage: Smoke can etch glass and tarnish metal surfaces quickly.
