Fire Affected Houses

Fire can occur at any time, in any place and is a deadly health hazard if not correctly cleaned. The different causes of a fire can produce different residues which determine how we clean and restore the affected building and its contents. Fire affected houses also produce different odours that can be difficult to eliminate without the correct identification of the cause.

Fire and smoke cause more damage than we can see with the naked eye. For your home to be safe after a fire, it must be decontaminated not just redecorated.Carpets, furnishings, wall coverings and other home and office structural elements contain natural, synthetic and organic chemicals. Studies have proven that when burnt, these chemicals are harmful to the human body.

Soot present at a damaged site poses a potentially lethal threat, particularly to sensitive individuals, so it must be dealt with responsibly and effectively.

The successful removal of the soot and smoke residue is essential even when the residues are too fine to be visible. In this case, their presence may be indicated by an odour. It is imperative that the soot residue is thoroughly removed before finishing’s, such as sealers, paints and wall coverings are applied, as the smoke odours can become entrapped.
