The Different Types of Fires
There are several different causes of fires. In order to properly restore your property, you need to be able to identify what caused the fire. Common types include:
- Natural fire: The fire occurred outside, burning up shrubbery and trees near the building. The smoke from the fire penetrated your home, resulting in smoke damage but no fire damage to the actual building.
- Protein Fire: This type of fire is caused by burnt food. Once food burns in the oven, the fire can spread to the entire house, leaving an odor and soot on every surface.
- Furnace malfunction: When a heating appliance or furnace malfunctions, smoke and fire damage can spread quickly throughout the house.
- Complex Fire: Synthetic and flammable substances in your home catch fire and serve as accelerants. This type of fire spreads quickly and results in excess smoke that causes an odor throughout the building.
Potential Issues Caused by Fire and Smoke
Fires are devastating for multiple reasons. Not only can fires cause extreme structural damage and destroy personal possessions, but smoke can penetrate every fabric and surface of your building and leave behind a noxious odor. Potential issues include:
- Damage to furniture
- Discolored walls and countertops
- Damaged upholstery, drapes, and carpet
- Tarnished metal
- Damaged glass
- Yellowed kitchen appliances

What Our Clients Are Saying
“We recently had a small house fire. Was recommended to Steamatic from several friends. Could not be more pleased with their services and their staff. Starting with the boss, Andi. When I called initially, he phoned me back within an hour, and was at my home the next day. He took a great deal of time to go through our entire home and detail the service is needed. He went over them with me before he left, and quickly scheduled a crew to come to our home.” – Katie O.
