Smoke in your Home?

11/15/2018 (Permalink)

Did you Know there are 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 Vincennes 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. Here is some additional information:

Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

  • Low heat, smoldering, pungent odor, sticky, smeary. Smoke webs are more difficult to clean.

Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

  • Fast burning, high temperatures, heat rises therefore smoke rises.

Protein Fire Residue – Produced by evaporation of material rather than from a fire

  • Virtually invisible, discolors paints and varnishes, extreme pungent odor.

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, expertise, and experience to restore your fire and smoke damage.  We will also treat your family with empathy and respect and your property with care.

Why we Chose SERVPRO of Vincennes Part One

11/15/2018 (Permalink)

Hello from The Drewes family! I (Morgan) wanted to write a special blog post about our family and why we chose SERVPRO. My husband, Danny has really always been an entrepreneur at heart. He started his own mowing business as soon as he could drive and it really took off from there. He is a worker. I knew this as soon as we met in college. He used to drive 4 hours home from college every weekend to mow his customers yards. He was committed.

Fast forward to today. He still mows. On top of owning SERVPRO and being the general manager, he is mowing in the evenings and on the weekends because he enjoys it. 

You might wonder why Danny didn't invest into mowing and making that a full time job. He saw an opportunity in SERVPRO while working under Dave Wolfe (Owner of SERVPRO of Effingham Illinois) and he ran with it. We would all laugh and say that he decided to drag his parents and myself into it too. 

Check out part two!

Why we Chose SERVPRO of Vincennes Part Two

11/15/2018 (Permalink)

We officially became SERVPRO of Vincennes owners in January 2013. Danny's parents (Leonard and Mary Drewes) and myself, we hit the ground running. I think there were days we were actually running!

We knew we wanted SERVPRO of Vincennes to be a company with integrity, and honesty. We wanted to base our business on serving others and serving them well. To this day, we take so much pride in or work. We want more than just a finished job. We want excellent customer service, and the highest quality of work. We stand behind what we do. 

SERVPRO has become another family to all of us. The people we have brought together to form our dream team are incredible and we couldn't do what we set out to do from the beginning without each and every one of them.

Smoke and soot can be a huge problem for you, your family, your home, and maybe even your business.

First of all, it is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. If you have a fire in your home it might not go all through your home, but the smoke and soot will. 

Our team here at SERVPRO of Vincennes knows all there is to know about smoke damage. Our 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.
