Smoke Damage Caused by a Fire

10/13/2021 (Permalink)

When we think of fire damage, our minds typically go towards a scenario where a home or structure is destroyed by flames, but did you know smoke can be damaging as well?

Smoke can ruin many items in a structure as it can cover your possessions in soot and leave a strong odor behind, which is dangerous to breathe in.

It’s important for you to know this, the longer one waits to begin the restoration process after smoke damage, it’s far more difficult to repair and may take even longer.

Some of the signs of smoke damage include:

  • Yellowing paint and/or countertops
  • A smokey smell on furniture and clothing days after the fire has been put out
  • Soot on walls and surfaces
  • Discoloring of surfaces, including countertops

If your property has endured a fire, it’s very likely that it has also endured some type of smoke damage.

Our experts at SERVPRO of Hesperia/Apple Valley and SERVPRO of Barstow/Twentynine Palms are here for you 24/7. Reach us at (760) 244-2566 for all questions and complete restoration.
