Types of Damage Present After a Fire There are three types of fire damage that can materialize in different ways, causing a different appearance and varying levels of destruction below the surface. Soot damage may be one of the most obvious given its thick, black appearance and tendency to deteriorate whatever it’s stuck to. Soot can grasp anything that’s burned and can do damage beyond its appearance including damaging electrical devices through problems like short circuits. Heat damage is the silent destroyer, taking down structural integrity in buildings, electrical systems and appliances sometimes without an owner even being aware. Panels, wires and electrical systems in general will wear out quicker if exposed to extreme heat, causing more hazards and dangers to its surrounding area. Electrocution and a loss of structural integrity are possible as consequences of high heat exposure. If heat damage is a silent destroyer, then smoke damage is a silent killer. The last of the types of fire damage, smoke damage can be lethal instantly with smoke inhalation or lay dormant, lingering and causing health problems if not addressed immediately. Because of this, it’s important that before anyone enters a smoke-damaged building after a fire, a professional deem the area safe. Take Action if Fire Strikes Personal safety will always be more important than belongings. Find safety before worrying about anything else, and make sure you’ve moved to a safe place away from any potential harm caused by fire or smoke. It’s important to wait until authorities clear the fire-ridden area before entering again, at which point you should inventory everything lost, damaged or reclaimed as best as you can remember. There are a number of reasons you may need this list in the near future, so make sure to make copies. There are many potential dangers to health and wellbeing when dealing with the recuperation following a blaze, so make sure to contact professionals to act quickly and effectively. The building won’t feel like it once did at first, and you may want to rush in and start scrubbing at walls and belongings, but make sure to let the house breathe to avoid any health hazards that can stem from lingering smoke, opening up all doors and windows, and avoid appliances and electronics until they’re cleared as safe. Make sure to empty the refrigerator/freezer, leave the doors open and move any food that was inside to avoid spoiling. Select the Pros!
