Fire is very destructive to a home, along with the damages caused by fire, it also brings along smoke damage. It damages surfaces and also causes health problems with bad air quality. It is bad enough to even consider damages done by smoke as a separate category from damages done by fire.
The damage done by smoke often involves the discoloration of surfaces from a layer of soot and has a persistent odor that doesn't seem to go away, and in some cases can be suffocating with prolonged presence in affected areas.
Smoke is the carrier of soot, and soot is mainly carbon powder as a result of burning. When smoke propagates within a home, it can enter very small spaces and cracks such as electrical outlets, spaces between switches. Depending on what was fueling the fire, some smoke can carry melted materials that can be characterized as rubbery, sticky, or greasy.
The sooner the restoration process begins, the less likely your property will sustain further damage. Once safe, we recommend that you open all of your windows to begin the process of removing smoke and soot from your house. This is critical since both contain potent and dangerous carcinogens that can have a detrimental effect on your health.
During the fire and smoke restoration process, the power and gas should be turned off until repairs are completed, since broken electrical components provide a risk of shock, and leaking gas can cause further damage.
