When there is a fire, damage control doesn’t stop at restoring burnt objects. Smoke particles tend to seep into your walls and furniture, which is why smoke removal is an essential part of the fire damage restoration process. Fire damage is easily visible, but smoke damage is much more difficult to notice. The smell of smoke can linger for a very long time due to the smoke particles spreading throughout your house and seeping into your walls. Carpets, curtains and furniture are especially prone to trapping smoke particles, causing the burning smell to linger for a long time. Professional smoke damage restoration services are essential to restoring your fire-damaged home.
Smoke Inhalation & Exposure to Smoke
The main problem with smoke particles, aside from the lingering smell, is that these particles contain chemicals and toxins. Plastic, cloth, leather and other materials from furniture and appliances can all release chemicals and toxins into the air due to smoke damage. Not only that, smoke particles contaminate any food or beverages that were not safely contained. Ingesting these foods can cause harm to your body. Being exposed to these particles and inhaling smoke for a long duration of time can harm your health, potentially causing short-term and long-term damage. It is crucial that you undergo smoke damage restoration treatment if your house has been damaged by fire.
Smoke and Soot Damage to Furniture
Soot refers to the black powdery substance that forms through incomplete combustion after fire damage. Soot, along with smoke particles, can seep into walls, carpets, curtains throughout your home or business. The lingering burning smell after a fire is typically caused by smoke particles that have seeped into walls and furniture and will remain unless removed properly. If not taken care of properly, smoke particles and soot can cause serious damage to your home and furniture. This can range from permanent discoloration of surfaces, to corrosion and rust of metals. Smoke particles can even stain your walls yellow and discolor your clothing. If left untreated for too long, restoration may not be possible, and replacement may be your option. The severity of smoke and soot damage greatly depends on how fast you act after the fire, so contact us immediately about our smoke damage services.
