As many individuals believe that the flames cause the majority of the damage for property fires; however, it is actually the smoke left behind that has the most destructive effect on the building materials and content. As the building structure and items are burned and consumed during a fire, they can become enveloped in the smoke. In the event that this occurs, emergency services must be called right away in order to not only restore the damage, but limit it from spreading.
ServiceMaster EMT is available to provide emergency smoke damage restoration services in the Garden Grove, CA area. Our products and equipment will effectively remove the smoke damage without causing harm to your property. We also work with insurance providers to allow the claims process to run as smooth as possible for you.
What Happens During Smoke and Soot Damage
During a fire, the smoke produced by the flames is responsible for the majority of damage. As this corrosive byproduct can be absorbed by various different structural materials, it can easily penetrate and become enveloped in the following materials: paint, fabrics, drywall, ceiling, floors, wood, and more.
In addition, as the flames will burn during the fire, when the smoke is burned, it is known as chemical burning, pitting, or etching. This is where the permanent damage will occur if it is not treated right away. It can also produce smoke residue within the building materials, feeling oily, sticky, and even corrosive to the touch. Finally, the property will be left in a considerable amount of smoke odors, especially after the flames have been extinguished.
