A common misconception among many property owners that experience a fire is that the flames themselves cause most of the damage to your home or business. However, the smoke and soot from the fire often pose the greatest risks to your property. Even if the fire is relatively contained before being put out, corrosive chemicals and other harmful byproducts within the soot are notorious for latching onto nearly anything they come in contact with. This occurs during the fire, but also days and weeks afterward, as loose soot can continually be blown from area to area.
This is why it is vital that you call professional soot and smoke damage restoration experts, such as RestorationMaster, as soon as possible.
Cleanup from Soot and Smoke Damage
Our technicians at RestorationMaster are trained to track and spot soot to effectively remove it from your property with our soot and smoke damage restoration services. We understand how it moves, and where it is likely hiding. For example, various materials (such as paint, fabrics, drywall, ceilings, floors, wood, etc.) are easily penetrated by smoke and soot.
Additionally, chemical burning, pitting, or etching may occur during the fire, which can cause permanent damage to your property if not taken care of quickly. Residue left behind by a fire is often oily, sticky, or even corrosive, and various odors always linger.
