Understanding The Fire and Smoke Damage Process as it Pertains to Your South Lake Tahoe Property
When it comes to fire and smoke damage and the eventual restoration of your contents and property In South Lake Tahoe, there is a lot to consider including understanding that fire damage is destructive, but the damage smoke can levy on your property, even in places far from the area directly affected by the fire itself, can be equally, if not more, catastrophic.
As smoke settles to property surfaces, even in far off unseen places, the process of pitting, etching, burning, and corrosion starts to unfurl. Making matters worse is any humidity and moisture present in the environment. When the humidity and smoke particles react with one another, further, more permanent damage occurs.
When it comes to ash, the elements present in wood ash are quite inert and on their own in powder form don’t present any serious danger to material surfaces, however, when mixed with water, chemical changes create a toxic matter that can be extremely harmful to surfaces of all types. Chemical etching poses serious risk to material surfaces, and even simple morning dew and minimal condensation on ash is enough to start the chemical process down the road to damage.
