What Causes Fire Damage?

Fire can arise from a multitude of sources, each capable of causing significant harm and posing serious risks. Here are some common reasons listed:

  • Electrical malfunction
  • Smoking materials like cigars, e-cigarettes, candles
  • Unattended cooking and heating appliances
  • Broken gas lines and other faulty appliances
  • Christmas tree
  • Combustible dust
  • Wildfire
  • Lightning
  • Man-made fires arising from deliberate burning of trees and garbage

Damage Caused by Smoke and Soot

Once the fire is out, smoke can travel throughout your home’s ventilation system with ease. Once it settles onto household surfaces, the soot can cause permanent damage, known as etching and tarnishing to the surface, changing its structural composition. Smoke also has the ability to travel through walls and for days after the flames have been extinguished. This is why it’s crucial to take immediate action afterward to prevent the damage from spreading.

More Information on Fire Damage Cleanup

What to throw away after smoke damage?

After smoke damage, it’s essential to discard items that are heavily affected and cannot be salvaged. This includes porous materials like upholstery, carpeting, mattresses, and clothing that retain smoke odors and residues. Additionally, perishable food items, opened packages, and medicines exposed to smoke should be disposed of to avoid potential health risks.

Can baking soda be used to put out fire?

Baking soda can be a handy tool for putting out certain fires. When exposed to heat, it releases carbon dioxide gas, which suffocates flames by depriving them of oxygen. It’s particularly effective for dealing with small kitchen grease fires and electrical fires. However, it’s important to understand that baking soda might not be suitable for all types of fires, such as those involving flammable liquids or gases. In such cases, using a fire extinguisher designed for the specific type of fire is safer. Nonetheless, having baking soda on hand can be a practical and cost-effective way to tackle small, contained fires at home.

How to clean burn marks from walls and cabinets in the kitchen?

In this guide, we explain how to effectively clean smoke stains from walls and cabinets. To clean walls stained with burn marks, start by using a chemical dry-cleaning sponge. Gently wipe the walls, ensuring the sponge doesn’t become too saturated with soot; if it does, clean and dry it before continuing. This sponge is effective at lifting burn marks, though stubborn ones may persist. In such cases, use paint thinner or rubbing alcohol on a regular sponge for further cleaning.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is fire damage restoration costly?

The cleanup and restoration is expensive. The cost depends on how much damage there is and how big the area affected is. It involves tasks like cleaning up debris, repairing things, and getting rid of smells.

Will my insurance rates increase after filing a fire damage claim?

Submitting a fire damage claim usually doesn’t lead to an instant rise in insurance rates. Yet, premiums might change later, influenced by factors like the damage extent, past claims, and overall risk of the property.

Can smoke and soot damage affect electronics and appliances?

Smoke and soot can get inside electronics and appliances, which might lead to malfunctions or corrosion. It’s important to have them checked during the restoration process.

Will my HVAC system need to be cleaned or replaced after smoke and soot damage?

Smoke and soot particles can infiltrate HVAC systems, ductwork, and filters, potentially spreading contaminants throughout the property. Hence we recommend you to get it inspected. Our restoration professionals are expert in all kinds of fire damage cleanup services.

"I have to thank everyone that came out to my home! I called on a Sunday and Garrett was there on Monday. He was professional and informative. He talked me through what needed to be done and worked directly with my insurance company. I would like to personally thank Will, Sean and Alexander for their hard work. They were like having family in my home. They are exceptional young men! Also, thank you to Floyd, he comes everyday to follow up and keeps me updated. I have to say, I was so overwhelmed with the water and mold situation but from the first visit I was taken care of with professionalism, compassion and a job well done."

"Was very impressed by how fast the response was and the priority given to us in light of many other simultaneous jobs ongoing. The team on the ground (literally - in our crawl space) was very diligent, courteous, and professional. Garrett and Joey did a great job keeping commitments, even when there were extenuating circumstances and I felt like this was a company staffed by a team that not only cared, but was willing to go the extra mile when necessary. And most importantly, the remediation work was done with high quality and passed an independent industrial hygienist inspection the first time. From the time we called until the inspector's "all clear" cert was issued was only about 10 days for a 1700 sq ft house and knowing that a team was in here all day every day for 5 straight days helped reinforce that they were giving our project a level of extra urgency and attention that was really appreciated. This was grueling work in a very confined, unpleasant space and I couldn't be happier with the end result or the way the team made a very challenging process as palatable as possible in keeping our house clean and relatively undisrupted."
