Northern Lancaster County Smoke and Soot Cleanup
Smoke and soot is very invasive and can penetrate various cavities within your home, causing hidden damage and odor. Our smoke damage expertise and 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.
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 Adamstown, Mohnton 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.

Tanker Truck Meets Commercial Building
On Saturday, July 16, 2022, a hazardous waste tanker truck lost control on Willow Street and smashed into our SERVPRO Office here in Adamstown. Fortunately no one was injured and handling disasters like this is what we do!
SERVPRO responded immediately, provided shoring to the structure so the Adamstown Police and Fire Departments could coordinate the removal of the truck from the building. Once the truck was removed we built temporary walls to secure the building and tarped the roof to make the structure water tight. This is not the Grand Opening that we were hoping for, but we will be sure to make this disaster "Like it never even happened." Stay tuned for before and after photos and our official neighborhood grand opening! We are excited to work in and be a part of this historic and charming city.
