Smoke Damage Restoration is Urgent

Smoke damage gets personal if it's your Lake Wales home that has experienced this event.

Get the information, compliments of SERVPRO, you need to make smoke damage a thing of the past by referring to the following outline:

How Smoke Or Ash Damage Progresses
• During the first few minutes of smoke or ash damage, the acid from the exothermic chemical reaction contained within ash and soot will start to yellow several types of plastics, including your small appliances. If not cleaned quickly, porous materials such as marble or alabaster can become permanently discolored.
• Several hours after the damage starts, the acid from the soot will stain your walls, kitchen grout or bathroom. It can also oxidize metal, yellow fiberglass, discolor your furniture, or damage your major appliances. Smoke can complete circuits on small electronic components rendering them useless.
• Within several days, your painted surfaces will be subjected to acidic soot. They will then start to yellow. Additional forms of deterioration include the corrosion and pitting of metals. Your wood may also be in need of refinishing. Finally, you may have to replace your vinyl floors.
• Within a few weeks, the smoke damage deepens. For example, your carpets can be permanently discolored, and clothing must be dry-cleaned to remove odors and soot Additionally, your silver-plated possessions can be subjected to irreversible corrosion. Also, items like glass and china may become etched from the acidic reaction of smoke and soot.
