The Hazards Of Fire Damage In Your Arizona Home

By Jason Wolfswinkel

Many things can create a hazardous situation in your home. Fire is one of these and can leave behind smoke and fire damage that continually progresses. Extinguishing a fire is simply not enough to make things right again in your home. 

When fire burns, the materials consumed by it produce smoke, soot, and ash. Much of this is small enough that it becomes airborne. After being in the air, these particles cool and then settle onto the multitude of surfaces inside your home. These areas often include rooms that were never actually involved in the fire itself. Grease particles from a cooking fire in the kitchen can make their way into your bedroom, for example.

The amounts deposited can also appear in ways that make them seem minute and unimportant. However, overall, even a slight layer of these can create problems, particularly for sensitive individuals, and affect health and vitality in people.

Any surfaces can fall victim to deposits from a fire’s burning, just as almost anything in your home can burn. Removing materials too far damaged for reuse paves the way for reinstallation of new materials. Personal belongings might also require removal, but to clean with high-tech cleaning systems, instead of disposal. 

Removing fire-damaged materials and replacing them with new materials is most of the restoration work. However, smoke and soot particles can continue to create problems, particularly when they are located in difficult to reach locations. Cleaning these particles away manually takes time. Air scrubbers help immensely. However, particles that have become attached to otherwise undamaged surfaces throughout your home can produce significant odors.

Sealants can help in preventing these particles from detaching from the surface they are on and creating smells in the air. Granular deodorizing agents can alter the pollutants and render them odorless before people detect them. Both are capable of making a once fire-damaged home smell much better than it previously did.

To restore your home to the condition, you enjoyed before fire damage existed, calling a professional company experienced in fire damage restoration can get you through the complicated process involved in complete restoration.
