When a fire rages through a home or business, it can burn everything in its path. However, another usually overlooked type of damage happens when the fire has been put out and smoke and soot spread through the property. These toxic byproducts can damage all kinds of materials and threaten your health. Smoke and soot can damage surfaces by tarnishing or etching them which can cause permanent damage. Smoke and soot should only be cleaned by a professional fire damage restoration company so that you can be sure it is removed safely, and it will not further damage your property.

Damage Caused by Smoke and Soot
Smoke and soot can cause serious damage after a fire as it spreads through the property until it is removed. It is crucial to call a professional fire restoration company to remove it so that you can safely return to your property.
Smoke and soot are corrosive byproducts that travel through the air and spread through the property quickly. They attach to various surfaces and cause damage. These surfaces can then be tarnished and even permanently damaged. Only professional grade cleaning can remove this type of damage. If you try to clean soot and smoke damage yourself, you may make it worse and spread it further.
Smoke always leaves a bad odor behind after a fire. It gets trapped into various building materials and various items. This odor can only be removed professionally with specialized deodorization methods that neutralize the odor.
