It is critical to act fast when dealing with fire damage. The level of severity for the cleanup is mostly determined by the type and temperature of the fire. Then, once the flames have been extinguished, mitigating smoke and water damage becomes crucial. Smoke and soot are highly acidic and can eat through most materials, including metal, glass, plastic, vinyl and fabric. Invisible and tiny, smoke particles are able to settle into the smallest cracks and crevices, leaving behind its distinct odor. Soot also has the potential to cause lasting damage to health and possessions if not handled properly. Most items are able to be salvaged from fire damage, but the longer that smoke is able to sit on items and surfaces, the more challenging it can become to remove. Smoke damage can begin having effects within hours or days and mold only requires 24-48 hours for new growth. Both smoke and mold can present health risks if left unaddressed and deteriorate structural material as well.
