SERVPRO of East Evansville Smoke and Soot Cleanup

Fire Damage SERVPRO of East Evansville Smoke and Soot Cleanup A House Fire Can Leave Behind A Prevalent Odor In Your Evansville Home.

Anyone that's ever experienced a house fire can attest, smoke and soot can be very invasive and get into unseen areas within a home.  

Facts about Smoke and Soot:

  • 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.

Three 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 East Evansville 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:

1. Wet Smoke – Plastic and Rubber

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

2. Dry Smoke – Paper and Wood

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

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

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

Evansville's Highland Baseball Club

SERVPRO of East Evansville Congratulates the Highland Baseball Club!

It was great to seeing Indiana represented again on the national stage this weekend. The Highland Baseball Club was selected from over 900 teams to play Saturday at Volunteer Stadium in the Challenger Exhibition at the Little League World Series. 

The game kicked off with Highland player Allie Shanks singing the national anthem. The kids had a lot of fun and everyone was involved. Even baseball Hall of Fame inductee Vladimir Guerrero was in attendance. He threw out the first pitch, gave players for both teams their medals and even filled in as third base coach. 

The team received a hero's welcome back from the Evansville Police Department, Evansville Fire Department, Vanderburgh County Sheriff, Indiana State Police, Scott Township Fire Department and fans from all over. 

We are so proud of you. You represented us well. 

If you missed the game they are showing it again 9/2 on Channel 9, WNIN.   

New Albany Little League

Congratulations and great job by the New Albany Little League team.

New Castle was the last team from Indiana to make it to the Little League world series. The kids from New Albany were just one game away.

The team came up short over the weekend against a team from Grosse Pointe, Michigan in the Great Lakes Region. Their only two losses came at the hands of the same team. They couldn't overcome the pitching and the game was stopped in the fourth inning because of the 10-0 rule to stop teams from running up the score. Hundreds of fans of the team were able to make the drive to see them play at Grand Park in Westfield just North of Indy. I actually stayed in Evansville and watched it on TV. They fell short but they played hard and had fun.        

They represented Southern Indiana well!
