To help homeowners and property owners understand fire damages, we have broken down the characteristics and aspects that are present whenever a fire occurs and how they can damage your structures or devour your belongings.

1) The Flames

One key contributor to fire damage is the flame of a fire. The flames are essentially the vehicle a fire uses to travel and release heat and light. What many do not realize is that the flames of a fire actually cause the least amount of damage to a property when a blaze breaks out, the other two factors below actually cause the most damages.

2) Heat

The second cause of damages in a fire is the heat and extreme temperatures a fire can reach. Depending on what materials have burned and how big the fire is, heat from a blaze can cause a significant amount of damages. The heat of a fire can melt, warp, and render several items useless or completely destroyed. Also, the heat of a fire can cause nearby items to dry-out, becoming much easier to catch aflame, contributing to the overall growth and size of a fire.

3) Smoke

The one contributor of a fire that causes the most damage to any property is the smoke. When any material is burnt, smoke is produced and released into the air. Depending on the material that is burned, smoke can produce thick films of residue and can become caustic; eating away at the materials it is able to buildup on. Smoke can also leave behind long lasting odors that can linger for months and become extremely difficult to remove.
