Attic insulation damaged from smoke

This attic insulation located in a home in Milwaukee, WI was damaged after a fire started in the kitchen and the smoke rose into that area.  Due to the odor of the smoke, SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County recommended and was given approval by the insurance adjuster to remove all the insulation in the attic.  Both batt insulation and cellulose insulation was found in this attic and removed.  The after photo was taken when all the insulation was removed.  The last step in the deodorization process was to use an ozone generator and help remove any remaining smoke odor.  By the time SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County was done cleaning and deodorizing the attic, all smoke odor was gone.

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 [[Franchise Name]] 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.
