House Fires in El Dorado County

This customer had a house fire that burnt plastic. You can see the level of damage to the cabinet above.

A fire can be devastating to anyone that experiences it. At SERVPRO of El Dorado Hills/Placerville we understand what devastation means and we know how to help. We have caring, dedicated, experienced technicians that are ready to assist in any situation. There are different kinds of fires that result in different kinds of soot. Different types of soot need to be cleaned in different ways. Protein fire residue is the hardest to detect, because of its light yellow or white color, but is characterized by the acrid smell of burnt food or burnt hair. Protein fire residues are some of the hardest to clean after because the smell is incredibly pervasive and strong. Combustion of plastics result in soot webs and oily soot. Plastic fire residues are difficult to clean because the soot smears if not cleaned with the correct products. There is a lot of misinformation on the internet, so make sure you call us first!
