If your home has been damaged in a fire, it is important that you seek professional fire and smoke restoration services. When a home has been exposed to fire, smoke or a combination of both fire and smoke, then the resulting damage can leave behind dangerous problems such as smoke residue, damaged flooring, weakened support systems and other problems which could lead to serious injuries or significant damage if left untreated.
Smoke is particularly hazardous as smoke can travel throughout the home using air ducts and the ventilation system, polluting multiple rooms in a matter of minutes.
A fire can cause substantial damage as well. Even after a fire has been extinguished, since fire is fast travelling, it can easily destabilize your home in a matter of minutes. Even if a home appears structurally sound, it is crucial to restore it as soon as possible.
Another type of fire related damage can come from the same solutions used to extinguish the fire. When the water and foam from fire extinguishing chemicals mixes with the fire, soot, and ash, it creates a thick sludge that will frequently seep into corners and other hard to reach areas. This sludge leaves behind a residue that can stain, discolor your home and personal belongings, and carry a terrible smell that can be nearly impossible to remove without the help of professionals.
You must also be aware of issues left behind by soot and smoke. Soot and smoke damage can cause serious staining and odor problems if not professionally cleaned up. Soot and smoke residue need to be deoxidized and cleaned with special, industrial cleaning solutions, and never with residential cleaning solutions, sprays, or other cleaning products commonly purchased from stores. If not cleaned properly with the appropriate cleaning solutions, the residues will not be completely removed, and the resulting smell can become nearly impossible to get rid of.
