It is no secret that house fires are never a welcome surprise. Something as simple as leaving an item in the oven can often have disastrous consequences. Kitchen fires like this (protein fires) are not as simple as one would initially think. 

So, what exactly is a protein fire? A protein fire is smoke damage resulting from the extreme burn of a protein rich fiber (such as meat left cooking in an oven). And, like mentioned above, at first glance, protein fires do not appear to cause any damage to other surfaces in your kitchen and home. Nonetheless, the damage is there.

What makes the damage hard to quantify? Protein fires generally leave little visible residue, often confusing the untrained observer. While it may be difficult to visually see damage, you can most definitely smell it. Protein fires create a significantly more repugnant smell than most other fires. The nature of the burn also causes it to penetrate deeply into walls and furniture even more completely than other fires. This makes the mitigation process more difficult than most fires and can sometimes require multiple attempts and methods.

Now the final question is, what to do after the fact? Luckily, this question has a simple answer, contact the pros at SERVPRO. Every fire damage situation is a little different and requires a unique solution, but the general process stays the same. When various materials burn, the soot they create differs greatly and requires a specific cleaning procedure. So regardless of what type of fire your Nacogdoches home has had, we have the tools and experience to handle it.
