Fire Damage and Smoke Damage Double Whammy

When a fire damages a home or business the damage often extends well beyond the reach of the actual flames. Smoke and soot caused by a fire can cause extensive additional damage as they spread throughout a structure and adhere to furniture, floors, walls, draperies, appliances, art and more. Smoke embeds soot and other small carbon particles that can damage surfaces, and often this damage is made worse the longer the carbon residue remains in place, making quick remediation of smoke and soot damage extremely important to restoring your property.

Porcelain and marble surfaces can be etched by carbon particles, while stainless steel, appliances and chrome can be permanently tarnished if not quickly and properly cleaned following a fire event. Draperies, furniture, carpets and other fabrics are especially vulnerable to oily soot residue that must be cleaned properly. If you don’t know how to clean soot correctly you can inadvertently push gritty soil and oily soot deeper into fabrics and carpets causing even more damage.
