How Smoke and Fire Damage Can Affect your Kaukauna, WI, Home

April 24th, 2017 · No Comments

Fires do not have to be large to cause significant fire damage to your Kaukauna, WI, home. Even something as innocuous as a small grease fire on your stove that you can extinguish yourself can leave behind soot and smoke damage that you can’t seem to get rid of. When fire damage is not properly remediated, it can continue to worsen with time, causing secondary damage. If you’re noticing tell-tale signs of smoke or fire damage days or even weeks later, you can rely on ServiceMaster Specialty Restoration Services to help. Our trained professionals are experienced in every aspect of fire damage restoration and will help return your home to its pre-loss condition.

A fire in your home, regardless of the source, will have no shortage of fuel since virtually all materials in a home are combustible from fabrics to wood. Fabric-based objects will burn more quickly, especially things made from organic materials like cotton. Dishtowels, curtains, and the like would be the first things to burn in a kitchen fire. Fire can spread quickly on these low-density surface areas, continuing to other parts of the home, such as counters and walls. Non-organic items, such as plastic, tend to shrink and melt rather than igniting. The chemical compounds in these non-organic items cause an acrid smell often associated with fires when they burn. All fires have many layers of harmful gasses, smoke, and soot that can damage your home.

If the smell from a fire is not properly treated, it can be psychologically triggering, causing distress and a feeling of being unsafe in the home. Removing the smells and damage from a house fire is important not only for the health of the house, but also for the people who call it home.
