We at On-Deck Restoration LLC specialize in providing restoration services to return your home to like-new condition following a disaster. Our team has worked on water damage, storm damage, and fire damage restoration projects over the years, and we know how to deal with the difficulties of each.
In our experience, many people whose homes have been damaged by fire are surprised to learn not all the damage is done by the flames—in fact, the smoke can do just as much harm to your property. Because of this, our team offers smoke damage restoration services. In this article, we’ll tell you more about smoke damage, so you know what to expect.
- Smoke Can Get Into Enclosed Spaces – One thing you need to know about smoke damage is that it can show up in surprising places, including inside wall cavities and in enclosed cabinets. This happens because smoke is a gas and can therefore get through the cracks. Smoke also contains acidic compounds that eat away at metal, so it can damage cabinet hardware, air vents, and much more.
- Smoke Residue Is Toxic – Another thing we want you to know about smoke damage is the harm it can do to your health. After a fire, soot and smoke residue will be left behind on your structures. Even if the structure itself is still sound, you will need our smoke damage experts to remove the residue, because breathing in the particles can do serious harm to your health.
- Smoke Residue Is Flammable – It’s also important to use our smoke damage restoration services because leaving smoke residue on your surfaces can increase the risk of another house fire. Smoke residue is flammable, and it will make it easier for another fire to start. Our team will thoroughly remove all traces of smoke to give you the peace of mind you deserve.
