The Types of Damage found on a Fire Damage loss Smoke Damage & Soot Damage: Most commonly mistaken for the only type of damage at a fire loss site, smoke and soot damage can permeate within the walls in a short period of time. Since buildings are made up of highly porous materials such as carpet, carpet padding, drywall and engineered flooring, these areas create the ideal environment for smoke to settle in. In addition to smoke, soot can come in two different forms; oily and dry. Each type of soot requires different techniques and tools and must be addressed by a professional. When you call Tidy Clean, we understand the factors to look for when dealing with smoke and soot damage. Our technicians are fully trained and certified by the IICRC and will take the proactive steps needed to get the job done correctly. Water Damage: The primary method to extinguish a fire is to use water. When the firefighters arrive at your property, the last thing going on in their mind is how the water will affect your structure. Instead, they are trying to put the fire out as soon as possible. The secondary damage from the fire can be quite costly if not addressed appropriately. It is essential to treat the water damage on a fire restoration project just as important as any other damage type. The reason? When water accumulates and stays in certain building materials for an extended period of time, mold, sagging and other types of secondary damage can occur. However, if you choose a company that can dry the structure while handling the other parts of the fire damage, then you could be back up and running in a shorter period of time. Contents Restoration: The most devastating effects of a fire is the damage to contents that hold an irreplaceable value to them. These are typically family heirlooms, items that hold a special meaning and old photo books. At Tidy Clean, we respect the value you place on any item.
