Smoke and Soot Damage from a Fire

2/23/2021 (Permalink)

Smoke and soot spread very quickly during a fire and even minutes after. They permeate into your walls and fabrics causing smoke odor to linger in your home. Smoke also causes staining and if left untreated by a professional, the odor and staining will only get worse over time.

 Soot also causes severe irritation to your eyes and skin. Soot is highly acidic and can cause corrosion to exposed metal components in your home, such as pipes and doorknobs.

If you have experienced a fire in your home or business, it is important to have a professional company properly treat smoke and soot damage. Call SERVPRO of Portsmouth at 757-397-3770 for a free estimate to help make fire damage feel “Like it never even happened.”
