What Smoke and Soot Can Do to a Home

Smoke and soot multiply the degree of damage to a home that has been ravaged by fire. They will create issues that include:

  • Discoloration of walls and furniture – Walls, furniture, and other items can be stained and discolored by smoke and soot. Because soot is an oily substance, trying to wipe it off walls, ceilings, or furniture may worsen the mess. Soot damage requires an expert to properly remove these residues from the surfaces of your home to avoid stains and prevent discoloration.
  • Abrasions and surface damage – Soot is a toxic substance that is acidic and oily in nature. That is what makes it difficult to remove with ordinary cleaners and why it is best to have a professional handle the clean-up and restoration work. If left on wooden surfaces, it can slowly degrade and destroy the wood.
  • Noxious odors – Getting rid of the acrid smoke smell is difficult and requires the attention of a trained technician. Not only do odors make a house smell terrible, but they can also trigger allergic reactions and respiratory problems.

In addition to damaging your home, smoke and soot can trigger health issues that include a long list of respiratory ailments, irritated eyes, skin rashes, and allergies. Both substances carry harmful chemicals that trigger these ailments.
