There’s some damage that fires cause that’s obvious. But there are also after-effects that aren’t as obvious, such as the damage caused by smoke and soot.
When there’s a fire, the resulting heat causes chemical reactions with burned materials. This creates corrosive and toxic smoke, soot, and residue that spreads even after the fire has been extinguished. Furthermore, these elements settle into materials and objects and can cause permanent damage if not addressed quickly. In fact, there doesn’t even need to be a fire for this to occur. Smoke and soot damage can come from candles, cooking, and fireplaces.

Damage Caused by Smoke and Soot
Oftentimes, when there’s a fire, smoke and soot are more damaging than the actual fire. This is because smoke and soot spread to areas of a property that were originally unharmed by the flames. The elements are corrosive and cause harm to a variety of materials. For example, smoke and soot can cause discoloration and etching to objects and surfaces in a home. This kind of damage needs to be addressed within 72 hours or else the damage will likely become permanent.
Our technicians can clean and restore nearly any objects and building materials. Through the use of advanced chemical cleaners, we safely rid of the effects fire byproducts leave behind and restore damaged items to their previous condition. Such damage needs to be restored immediately; otherwise, you risk permanent damage.
Smoke Odor Removal
Aside from soot and residue, smoke odor is also an issue. The odor is easily absorbed by building materials and other objects, making them difficult to remove using do-it-yourself methods. This can also make it easy for the smell to linger.
With smoke odor removal from Rainbow International Restoration of South & West Suburbs, we use advanced deodorization techniques to eliminate smoke odors from air spaces and affected materials. Once the odor is extracted, we make sure your property stays free of odors.
It can be tough to determine whether such situations should involve your insurance provider, but we can help you figure that out based on our assessment of the damage. In the event you decide to file a claim, we will bill your insurance provider directly so that you don’t need to worry about the payment. We also offer a price-match guarantee to match any estimates you have received from an IICRC-certified professional service.
When your property has smoke or soot damage, it is essential to act immediately to prevent any damage from becoming permanent.
