Fire Damage SERVPRO of Timmins Smoke And Soot Cleanup Have fire and soot damage? Call SERVPRO of Timmins 705 267-1500.

Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our Smoke damage expertise and experience allows us to inspect and accurately assess the extent of the damage to develop a comprehensive plan of action.

Smoke and soot facts:

  • Hot smoke migrates to cooler areas and upper levels of a structure
  • Smoke Flows around plumbing systems, seeping through the holes used by pipes to go from floor to floor
  • The type of smoke may greatly affect the restoration process

Different types of Smoke

  • There are two different types of smoke-wet and dry. As a result there are different types of soot residue after a fire. Before restoration begins, SERVPRO of Timmins will test the soot to determine which type of smoke damage occurred. The cleaning procedures will then be based on the information identified during pretesting.
    • Wet Smoke - Plastic and Rubber
    • Dry Smoke - Paper and Wood
    • Protein Fire Residue - Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

Our Fire Damage Restoration Services

Since each smoke and fire damage situation is a little different, each one requires a unique solution tailored for the specific conditions. We have the equipment and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage. We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care

Does Your Timmins Home Have A Mould Problem?

3/2/2018 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Does Your Timmins Home Have A Mould Problem? In Timmins, mould can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours.

Microscopic mould spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mould from a home or business. Therefore, mould remediation reduces the mould spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mould removal” and even guarantee to remove all mould, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mould facts:

  • Mould is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mould spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mould spores thrive on moisture. Mould spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mould remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mould may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mould problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mould problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mould infestation.

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall.

There are a number of reasons why your Timmins basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more
