When a house or building fire occurs it can be one of life’s most traumatic experiences. Discovering that your building and contents are being destroyed can certainly be devastating as you may not know what to do after calling the fire department. However, your building and contents can still be saved after a fire as long as treatment is applied right away. This is because even after the flames have been extinguished, the soot and smoke particles left behind will cause etching and tarnishing to the affected surfaces. In order to prevent permanent damage, emergency damage cleanup services are crucial.
RestorationMaster is available in Hillsboro, OR to provide emergency smoke damage restoration services to not only restore the damage but your peace of mind. Our technicians will also limit the spread of damage, keeping it contained to the affected area. We will also work with your insurance provider to allow the process to run as smooth as possible.
Experiencing Smoke and Soot Damage
The reason why emergency treatment is crucial is because the smoke and soot can settle into the affected materials quickly, making them unsalvageable within a certain amount of time. As the fire burns, the smoke can burn as well. This is called chemical burning, pitting, and etching. Porous materials, including paint, wood, drywall, and fabrics, are most susceptible to take on this type of damage as they will absorb these corrosive byproducts in the least amount of time.
The smoke and soot particles will also leave behind a residue that can be oily, corrosive, and sticky to the touch. Ultimately, the faster the treatment is applied, the less of a risk occurs for permanent damage of the structural materials and content.
