Fire Damage Services

What are the most common types of fire?

Protein Fire

A protein fire is a type of fire that occurs when food or organic materials burn. Most common in kitchens, these fires result from the combustion of proteins found in items such as meat, eggs, and dairy products. Protein fires produce pungent odors and create greasy, hard-to-remove residues. Swift, specialized Binghamton fire cleanup is necessary to restore affected spaces.

Complex Fire

A complex fire refers to a fire event that involves a combination of factors such as vegetation, structures, and wildlands. These fires can be challenging to control due to their multifaceted nature and can spread rapidly across varying landscapes. In the aftermath of a complex fire, hiring a fire restoration company becomes an essential part of effectively cleaning up the extensive damage.

Natural Fire

A natural fire is a fire that ignites and spreads due to natural factors like lightning strikes, volcanic activity, or spontaneous combustion. Humans are not to blame for these fires. When you choose Green Tree Environmental for our unparalleled fire damage repair service in Binghamton, we’ll help you restore your property with care and expertise.

Furnace Malfunction

Fires can occur when a defective heating system ignites flammable materials, and these furnace malfunction fires can cause extensive damage. These incidents are certainly distressing, but you can count on the specialized expertise of Green Tree Environmental to help you safely and thoroughly recover. Our experienced team uses our fire remediation and restoration techniques to eliminate visible damage and hidden risks alike, ensuring a complete restoration that makes your space as safe and functional as it was before the incident.

What environmental and health risks do fires pose?


Fires disperse ash, which is residue from burned materials. This residue contains fine particles and toxic substances, which can infiltrate soil, water, and air. The release of chemicals and contaminants can be detrimental to local ecosystems and pose a number of short-term and long-term ecological disruptions. Inhaling ash particles can irritate the respiratory and cardiovascular systems in humans and animals. Management and proper disposal of ash are complicated processes that require a skilled fire damage repair service in Binghamton, like Green Tree Environmental, to minimize the impact on environmental and human health.


Smoke is an elaborate blend of VOCs (volatile organic compounds), toxic gases, and fine particulates. Smoke is released during combustion, and inhaling its pollutants can cause immediate and/or long-term respiratory and heart complications. Smoke has a unique ability to spread over large areas and degrade air quality everywhere it reaches, affecting ecosystems and human populations alike. It can have far-reaching ecological consequences, impacting vegetation, aquatic life, and far beyond. Effective smoke remediation and smoke damage cleaning are vital for both public health and the environment.


Odors can linger after a fire, with the most concerning factor being the origin of those odors – volatile chemicals and hazardous substances. Odors aren’t just obnoxious, but they also serve as an indication of harmful particles in the environment. Prolonged exposure to these lingering odors can compromise indoor and outdoor air quality, trigger reactions, irritate the respiratory system, and more. Without thorough, professional fire cleanup services from a trusted provider like Green Tree Environmental, a safe and healthy living or working environment cannot be guaranteed.
