Experiencing a property fire can be one of life’s most traumatic experiences. As the damage can not only severely affect the building materials, it can also affect one’s personal items. While many individuals believe that the flames cause most of the damage during a fire, the majority of damage is actually incurred by the smoke and soot particles left behind. Even after the fire has been put out, the smoke and soot particles will cause etching and tarnishing to the affected surfaces. This is why emergency cleanup services are crucial in order to prevent permanent damage.
ServiceMaster Restore provides emergency smoke and soot damage restoration services in Beaverton, OR to effectively restore the property and contents to their original conditions. We will also work with your insurance claims agent to eliminate as much stress for you as possible.
What Occurs During Soot and Smoke Damage
Throughout a fire, the smoke produced from the flames will cause the majority of damage to a home or building and their contents. This can cause severe destruction if treatment is prolonged. Just as the items and building structure are enveloped in the flames, smoke, and soot, they can sustain permanent damage.
However, porous materials can quickly take on the most damage in the shortest amount of times as the smoke will penetrate deep within their structure. These materials include: wood, drywall, paint, fabrics, and more. In addition, when the smoke is burned during a fire, it can cause etching and tarnishing, causing the most destructive damage to these materials. When this happens, it will leave behind a smoke residue that will feel oily, sticky, and even corrosive. Ultimately, when longer treatment is prolonged, the building or house will be left in an unstable condition and the risk for permanent damage increases by the hour.
