Fire and Smoke Damage Spells Trouble for your Yankton, SD, Building

November 6th, 2017 · No Comments

When fire damages any building, be it a home, office, retail, or healthcare facility, the effects of the fire go well beyond flames. The smoke and soot that is generated by the fire can cause severe and long-lasting damage to the structure if not properly remediated using tested fire damage restoration techniques. As the smoke and soot drift through the building during a fire, these tiny microscopic particles carry many different compounds that make it very difficult to remove. Smoke and soot adhere to everything it contacts including walls, carpeting, and even the paint on the walls.

The longer this caustic residue stays in place, the more damage it will do to your Yankton, SD building. Fast and effective cleanup of smoke and soot damage is crucially important to salvaging the building and preventing further losses.

What kind of damage can smoke and soot do to a building?

  • Chrome, glass, and stainless steel can tarnish and discolor. Left to sit for extended periods of time, the chemical reaction generated may mean the staining and damage will not be able to be reversed
  • Marble, tile, and porcelain fixtures in bathrooms or kitchens can become permanently etched with particles of carbon residue
  • Soot can push its way into the fibers of carpeting, soft furnishings, and fabrics, leaving an oily residue and ruining the textile
