Fire Damage Related Info
When fires occur, they can cause damage so extreme that they can leave properties in critical conditions, and it doesn’t even stop when the flames are out. All of the corrosive byproducts, like soot and smoke will cause etching and tarnishing to the remaining materials, covering them in a thick, oily residue that will need to be removed with professional products.

Soot and Smoke Removal
While flames are indeed destructive, the corrosive soot and smoke byproducts account for the majority of the damage. This is because they can spread throughout the property, covering all remaining surfaces that weren’t originally affected in the fire. But the damage caused by these byproducts can cause permanent destruction without immediate attention.
