Act Within 24 Hours: Don’t Wait to Prevent Smoke Residue Damage

Post-fire, the primary threat to your home is smoke damage. Acidic smoke residues can lead to permanent damage, such as corrosion, staining, and discoloration of materials. The type of residue varies depending on the fire’s nature and materials burned:

  • Wet Smoke Residue: Sticky and odorous, occurs in smoldering, low-heat fires.
  • Dry Smoke Residue: Fine, powder-like dust from fast, hot fires.
  • Protein Residue: Invisible but odorous, common in cooking fires, may discolor paints and varnishes.
  • Additional Residues: Includes substances like fire extinguisher chemicals and fingerprint powder, requiring thorough cleaning for a safe environment.

Quick and professional cleaning is essential to mitigate these varied damages and restore your home effectively.
