Advice if You've Suffered Smoke Damage to your Home

A fire can cause immense damage to your home. Besides the flames that can destroy furniture and valuables among other things, the smoke from a fire can prove hazardous to your property long after the fire has been put out.

Should you have to deal with the misfortune of suffering from fire damage to your home, here is some advice on how to deal with smoke damage.

Why Smoke Damage is Dangerous?

Smoke damage is known to ruin not just furniture, upholstery and mattresses; it can have other dangerous repercussions too.

The walls, floors, countertops and even closed cabinets are likely victims of smoke damage. The smoke from a fire tends to leave an acidic film on the surface. This acidic film is corrosive and if left untreated, can result in odours, discolouration and more worryingly, definite damage to the core structure.

It may also cause harm to your skin if you touch these surfaces without adequate protection such as gloves.

Cleaning up smoke damage is not child’s play. You need to hire specialists who are well equipped and qualified for the job. At Ambient Preservation, we specialise in smoke damage restoration in the North East.

What Happens During Smoke Damage Cleaning?

A professional team like ours will assess both the cause and extent of smoke damage as the first step. Analysing the residues is the next step, which helps us determine which cleaning techniques must be adopted.

A protein fire, for instance, is brown or yellow and tends to leave behind a residue that is very greasy. A synthetic fire, on the other hand, leaves a black residue that tends to smudge very easily.

Our expert smoke damage repair professionals in the North East will then determine the optimal solution for restoring your property with minimal disruption.

The cleaning and decontamination process is completed within the shortest possible time.

Why You Should Not Do It by Yourself?

Smoke damage is not just unpleasant to clean up, it can cause immense harm to your health if you do not handle the situation with the right gear and cleaning methods. The best thing to do is to leave the task to the professionals.
