In the case of a fire, the initial damage will be done by the flames as they quickly spread and burn through anything in their way. Even when the fire’s flames are put out, the damage can continue. If it is not addressed right away, it can leave permanent damage and cause larger issues. Fires create smoke, soot, and other byproducts when materials are partially burned. These byproducts are corrosive and will linger after the fire is put out and cause harm to affected materials. Porous materials such as furnishings, walls, and wood are at high risk for permanent damage if they are not restored from the smoke and soot damage immediately.
Our team at RestorationMaster provides smoke and soot damage restoration and cleaning in Bethlehem, PA to restore materials and items affected by corrosive byproducts. We are equipped with advanced chemical cleaners, chem sponges, and proven methods to effectively treat and restore damaged furnishings and belongings to return them to their original condition.
Damage Caused by Smoke and Soot in Bethlehem, PA
When many people think of a fire, they think that once the flames are out, the damage is finished. Unfortunately, smoke, soot, and other corrosive byproducts hang around long after the fire is out and cause even more damage. These corrosive byproducts will continue to spread and settle throughout the property to areas the fire itself did not touch. To prevent permanent damage, the cleaning and restoration process must be started immediately. Smoke can turn appliances yellow within an hour and discolor walls in just a few minutes.
The partial combusting of burnt materials creates soot and oily residues. Their tiny particles will settle on various objects and surfaces, causing etching and discoloration. Without the immediate and professional cleaning process, many materials that are damaged by soot are vulnerable to permanent damage. Soot or smoke-damaged surfaces should only be cleaned by a professional because improper cleaning techniques will make the damage worse.
Leftover smoke after fire damage can also cause more losses as it leaves behind an oily residue and strong, lingering odors. When smoke odor particles get trapped in furnishings, carpets, airspaces, and porous building materials, the only way to get rid of the odors is to extract them. The process of extracting the odor particles requires professional equipment and specialized deodorization methods.
