What should you expect once the fire is put out?
Once the fire has been put out, it’s easy to assume that the extent of the damage is finished. However, fire and smoke damage can have lasting effects on your home and personal property. It’s important for you to understand just what happens after a fire.
- Soot residue begins to settle as soon as a fire is out. Soot is highly acidic and it will begin to stain surfaces right away. Porous surfaces such as plaster and wallboard are most vulnerable to smoke damage and discoloration.
- Within a few hours, the long-term effects of smoke damage become more obvious. Smoke residue will damage floors, carpeting, clothing, finished wood, and painted walls. Its highly acidic composition will also begin to rust and corrode metal.
- If your home is not treated right away by restoration professionals who know how to handle smoke damage, much of your property may need to be replaced. The longer soot is allowed to remain in a home, the more comprehensive damage and deterioration there will be.
Cleaning up and restoring the damage caused by fire, soot, and smoke is a daunting task. Damage due to chemical reactions are a given. Smoke can reach deep into every nook and cranny. Meanwhile, soot can cover large parts of a house. For these reasons and more, you’ll want to call an experienced fire restoration company who can help you through the entire process.
We can even remove the ongoing smell left from soot and smoke damage.
