Smoke After The Fire

Encountering a fire in your home or business is never something we anticipate. Smoke damage caused by a fire can be devastating to your personal property and building structure, which is why quick action is the only way to help minimize the destruction. Learn how fast fire and smoke damage can affect your property.

Minutes after a fire
• Acidic soot starts staining affected surfaces of your property
• Absorbent materials will become discolored

Hours after a fire
• Metal begins to rust and deteriorate
• Paint on the walls start to yellow
• Clothing can permanently stain
• Wood furniture and detailing may require refinishing
• Flooring may need replacement

Within weeks, if property is left untreated
• Soot exposure will permanently harm surfaces and embed in fibers
• The best option may be to replace the property entirely
