Fire damage is extremely destructive and can be very difficult to restore without needing to simply replace the materials and items that were damaged. Fire will destroy most materials, both organic and synthetic, and while professional companies will be able to preserve more of your property, this is among the most difficult of damages to restore successfully.
Smoke & Soot Damage
Smoke is simply huge quantities of tiny burnt materials, soot, that are carried far and wide by the hot air caused by the fire. Depending on the type of materials burned in the fire, the smoke damage can vary greatly and the methods used to clean the smoke will need to adjust accordingly or else there is a risk of spreading the damage.
Water damage is caused by the firefighters in their effort to extinguish the fire and salvage as much of your property as possible. The issue is that water damage is also extremely destructive and and any standing water remaining will need to be removed quickly before further damage can be done. Working with a professional restoration company is the best option when it comes to fire damage.
