Smoke & Odor Removal
Smoke Damage Removal
Understanding the extent of fire damage to a home is complicated because much of the harm is done long after the fire is put out. Smoke damage takes time to manifest itself, and when it does the consequences are serious. For this reason, homeowners should call the smoke damage removal experts at H2O Services immediately following a fire.
Smoke behaves in different ways depending on the type of fire that occurs. Therefore, it takes the eye of a highly trained specialist to understand what damage the smoke has done. For example, some fires produce smoke that burns slow and creates a strong odor. Other fires, conversely, create smoke that burns fast at very high temperatures, causing a lot of damage in a very short period of time.
When people think of smoke damage, they focus mainly on furniture and perhaps the walls. However, smoke can cause harm to much more than one might think. During a fire, smoke works its way throughout the pipes in the house and up to all levels of the structure. The integrity of the entire house is compromised.
Smoke can affect carpeting, drapery, furniture, clothing, food, chrome fixtures, plants, appliances, and woodwork. If it is not dealt with in a timely manner, these items could all be damaged beyond repair, requiring replacements. This necessitates a thorough inspection and detailed recovery plan from the technicians at H2O Services.
Smoke not only ruins homes, but it also often creates an unbearable odor. This lingering odor is complex and difficult to remove. Furthermore, it is not only harsh on the senses, but it also poses a threat to the health of those smelling it. Smoke can contain dangerous levels of carbon monoxide, methane, sulfur dioxide, and a whole host of other harmful chemicals.
