Serving Imperial County
When a fire occurs in a property, many will believe that the flames of a fire are the primary culprits in causing property damages. But that assumption is not entirely true, as much of the damages in a fire is caused by the smoke that is emitted from burned and charred items. Smoke may not be able to turn belongings into ash, but when smoke comes into contact with objects and surfaces, it will penetrate into nearby objects, causing discoloration and damages.
Depending on what items were burned, the smoke generated from burned items can vary greatly as it can be caustic and/or corrosive, creates a thick film of residue, emits odors, permanently tarnish items, and is easily absorbable. We've compiled a list of the types of smoke damage that can occur within any property when a fire erupts.
Depending where the fire occurs within your property and what materials are burned, you may only see yourself facing only one or two of these types of smoke damage.
