The aftermath of a fire can be devastating and usually requires repair to the structure. Smoke odors penetrate the structure and contents while layers of soot blanket everything within its reach – including walls, flooring, carpeting, upholstery, fabrics and everything found in a typical property. A Maxons trained professional will survey the loss site to determine the extent to which fire, smoke, heat and moisture impacted building materials and contents. They can quickly determine what can be restored, how to do it, and then get it done right.
Cleaning up after a fire is just one part of a job. We understand that there are many types of smoke damage and their resulting damage must be handled as the unique situation it is.
The most common type of fire includes organic material such as wood, cloth, rubber and some plastics.
These fires follow the same basic fire tetrahedron (heat, fuel, oxygen, chemical reaction) as ordinary combustible fires, except that the fuel in question is a flammable liquid such as gasoline, or natural gas.
This sort of fire may be caused by short – circuiting machinery or overloaded electrical cables. Electrical fires may be fought in the same way as an ordinary combustible fire, but water, foam, and other conductive agents are NOT to be used. While the fire is, or could possibly be electrically energized, it can be fought with any extinguishing agent rated for electrical fire.
Certain metals are flammable or combustible. This category includes sodium, titanium, magnesium, potassium, uranium, lithium, plutonium and calcium. Magnesium and titanium fires are very common.
Fires that involve cooking oils or fats. Though such fires are technically a subclass of the flammable liquid/gas class, the special characteristics of these types of fires are considered important enough to be recognized separately.
