Space heater fire in Sherman Oaks, CA causes Soot tags aka “Smoke Webs”

When a homeowner in Sherman Oaks, CA has a smoldering fire, the chemical phenomenon known as Soot Tags aka “Smoke Webs” occurs. Soot Tags result from the ionization process of burning synthetic materials like plastics, rubbers and polymers, creates charged smoke particles which can attract towards certain surfaces, and attract to each other creating chains, and ultimately web-like formations. They form under certain conditions called wet smoke, which involves low heat, or smoldering type environments. Since this fire was smoldering throughout the night, it makes sense that the room was filled with Soot Tags in the morning. Luckily, the homeowner called SERVPRO of Crescenta Valley/East Glendale and we were able to clean and disinfect the entire structure to its original state.

House Fires put life on hold

There's nothing convenient about experiencing a house fire. Although we may see more fire damage situations than the average person does, it doesn't change the fact that each house fire puts life on hold for families. Trust the company to know exactly what needs to be done to make it "Like it never even happened."

Chemical Sponges

We use Chemical (aka "Chem") Sponges to determine the severity of soot/ash damage following a fire. Because each Fire Damage job is a little different from the previous one, these are used only with dry smoke/soot residue and are very helpful in knowing proper restoration protocols should be followed.

Our Hydroxyl Generators (aka ‘Titans’) are the perfect match to fight fire and smoke odor

Fire, smoke and soot damages in a structure can create unpleasant and permanent problems if not properly addressed. Unless fast, professional action is taken, these residues and deposits can cause permanent damage to contents and result in periodically resurfacing odors. That’s why our Titans combat malodors at the molecular level, leaving a neutralized environment where soot and smoke damage can’t stand a chance.
