When a fire occurs, there are many elements of the fire that can cause damage, including the flames, smoke, and soot. While the flames can cause very serious damage, the smoke and soot are usually responsible for a higher volume of damage. Smoke and soot are corrosive byproducts of a fire. These will continue to spread and settle throughout the property after the fire is out. Soot and oily smoke residue will cause damage to affected surfaces, including discoloration and etching, and odors from the smoke can get absorbed into porous materials. There doesn’t even have to be a fire for there to be smoke and soot damage as cooking, candles, and smoking can also result in this type of damage.
