When you think of fire damage, it’s easy to conjure the worst case scenario where a house burns to the ground, leaving nothing but smoldering ashes and a crumbling foundation.
In actuality, fire damage can range anywhere from minimal to catastrophic and everything in between, depending on the source of the fire and how quickly it’s detected and contained.
For example, fire damage resulting from a kitchen cooking accident is usually caught quickly. Damage is typically limited to areas of the walls, cabinetry, and floor.
Alternatively, fires originating in a home’s garage or workshop may not be noticed for some time and can result in considerable fire damage.
Whatever your fire damage situation may be here in West Chester, PA and surrounding communities, it’s almost guaranteed to include some amount of smoke damage, and smoke damage can sometimes be more difficult to clean up after than actual fire damage. In fact, smoke particulate can make its way in between walls and ceilings. When combined with humidity, smoke particulates can create a stew of residues that can corrode surfaces and structures long after fire damage restoration has been completed. This, understandably, can come as a surprise to homeowners who thought their fire damage experience was well behind them.
