Fire is such a dangerous disaster because it risks the lives of people inside the building and causes serious damage to the property. However, the damage is not over once the flames are put out. Corrosive byproducts, like smoke and soot, spread and linger throughout the building and can cause permanent damage to the materials they settle on.
RestorationMaster offers smoke and soot damage cleanup services to homes and buildings in Rosenberg, TX. Our technicians will use our advanced deodorization products and techniques to contain the spread of smoke and soot residue and clean the affected areas.
Smoke and Soot Damage
Fires are so dangerous because the damage occurs in two separate stages:
- The first stage happens when the building materials and furnishings were destroyed by the flames. This damage can become so severe that the structure of the building becomes unstable. Soot, smoke, and other corrosive byproducts are created when fire reacts with synthetic furnishings, like drywall and wood, which creates our second stage.
- The second stage happens when corrosive byproducts, like soot and smoke residue, linger throughout the property and settle on objects and materials. The affected areas become tarnished and discolored as a result, and this damage can become permanent if not addressed right away. In some cases, the secondary damage caused by corrosive byproducts can be more severe than the initial fire damage.
Wood, drywall, furnishings, and other porous materials absorb and trap smoke odors, which makes the smell linger permanently until removed. Temporary solutions, like candles and air fresheners, will not remove the smell for this reason.
For proper removal, the source must be identified, and the odor particles must be extracted with advanced cleaning products and techniques. Our technicians at RestorationMaster are trained and equipped to handle smoke odor removal services of any size and will provide quality customer service.
