Removing Harmful Smoke & Soot After A Fire

When a fire happens, it will cause a lot of damage to your property in different ways. Some parts might get burnt badly, while others may just need some fixing to make them look like they did before. But sometimes, the smoke and soot can make things look worse than they are. This stuff is dangerous and can make you sick if it’s not cleaned up properly.

Trying to clean up soot and smoke by yourself isn’t a good idea. Luckily, our technicians at Anderson Restoration have the right smoke removal service trainings and tools to get rid of bad smells, clean up ash, and remove any leftover smoke or soot stains.

How Can Fire & Smoke Damage Can Affect Homeowners?

Fire and smoke damage can have significant effects on homeowners, both emotionally and financially. Here are some ways it can impact them:

  • Property Damage: Fire can cause extensive damage to the structure of the home, as well as personal belongings such as furniture, appliances, clothing, and electronics. Smoke can also permeate walls, upholstery, and other surfaces, leaving behind a lingering odor and residue.
  • Displacement: In severe cases, homeowners may need to vacate their homes during the restoration process, leading to temporary displacement. Finding alternative accommodation can be stressful and expensive.
  • Health Concerns: Smoke from fires can contain harmful chemicals and particles that pose health risks to homeowners, especially those with respiratory issues or sensitivities. Lingering smoke odor can also cause discomfort and respiratory problems.
  • Decreased Property Value: Even after repairs are made, a home that has experienced fire and smoke damage may suffer from decreased property value. Prospective buyers may be hesitant to purchase a home with a history of fire damage, leading to difficulty selling the property or lower resale value.

Letting us help you restore your home can drastically limit the amount of property damage, health issues, and emotional toll that usually happens after a fire on your property.

FAQ's

Do not use any appliances or electrical devices that have been exposed to fire, smoke, or water damage. Using such appliances can pose safety hazards and increase the risk of electrical fires or further damage. It's essential to have these items inspected and evaluated by qualified professionals before attempting to use them again. Additionally, refrain from using any food items or medications that may have been exposed to smoke, heat, or contaminants from the fire, as they could be compromised and unsafe for consumption.

House fires often start from common situations. Cooking accidents, like leaving stoves unattended or using overheated oil, are a major cause, especially in kitchens. Heating systems can also spark fires if they malfunction or if objects are too close to space heaters.

Electrical problems, such as overloaded circuits or old wiring, are another risk. Smoking and candles left unattended are additional hazards, particularly if cigarettes are not properly extinguished or if candles are near flammable items.

The time required to repair fire damage varies depending on factors such as the extent of the damage, the size of the property, and the availability of resources. Minor smoke damage may be resolved within a few days to a week, while more extensive damage requiring structural repairs could take several weeks or even months to fully repair and restore. It's essential to consult with a professional fire restoration company to assess the specific timeline for your situation.

Smoke damage can be mild or severe, depending on how long and how intense the exposure was. Breathing in smoke particles can harm your health, especially if you already have breathing problems. Smoke can also ruin surfaces and belongings. It's important to clean up quickly to stay safe.
