Fire is considered one of the most dangerous disasters because of how much damage it does to a property and the risk it poses to people’s lives. Fires can easily spread throughout the house, which is why immediate action must be taken.

Our restoration contractors will stabilize your property as soon as they arrive onsite to prevent further structural damage.

Problems Caused by Fire Damage

Fire causes several different types of damage to the property. The flames themselves cause the primary damage by destroying furnishings and structural elements of the building. Corrosive byproducts, such as soot, smoke, and residue, cause secondary damage by harming building materials and personal belongings. These corrosive byproducts are created by the burning of synthetic materials, which are involved in synthetic fires, the most common type of house fire.

Types of Fires

  • Protein fire – involves charred and burned material, stove-top grease, and hair and living tissue

  • Wood and paper fire – involves wood or paper products being consumed, any fire where wood structure is present

  • Synthetic fire – involves burned plastic materials, electrical fires, and upholstery furnishing and carpeting being consumed

Regardless of the source, fires create corrosive byproducts that can negatively affect the objects and materials it encounters. Aluminum, marble, brass, chrome, tile, porcelain, and wood can all experience etching and discoloring if affected by soot and this change will become permanent if not addressed. When flooring and furniture materials are burned, they create complex chemical reactions that are harmful and toxic. Our team is properly trained to clean your damaged items and replace materials that are creating dangerous chemicals.
