When it comes to smoke damage, there’s no time to waste. Smoke is a silent killer that lingers in your furniture, flooring, and walls and leaves long-term effects. If you have smoke damage in Virginia Beach after a fire or suspect you have smoke damage in your home from any other source, call Jenkins Restorations to keep your family safe and get back your peace of mind.
Cleaning Smoke Damage in Virginia Beach
It’s not just the fire itself that can cause damage to your home. Smoke and soot from the fire can seep into the walls, ceilings, and other hidden spaces in your home.
While smoke damage primarily occurs during a fire, that is not the only reason you may find evidence of smoke damage in your house. Home furnaces that have been improperly calibrated or are malfunctioning can also cause smoke damage that often goes unnoticed. Soot, the byproduct of combustion, is carried through the home by smoke. This allows it to seep behind walls, ceilings, attics, or into other areas that may not be obviously affected by a fire.
If proper smoke remediation is not performed, damage from a fire, a faulty furnace, or any other cause of smoke and soot in the home can lead to safety and health risks. Leaving smoke damage untreated can cause:
Health issues, particularly with asthma and similar conditions.
Etching, caused by low PH in soot, can be found in metal and/or furniture pieces in your home.
Staining, especially on porous or lighter colored materials, can permanently change the pigmentation the longer it sits untreated.
If you have smoke damage after a fire or suspect you have smoke damage in your home from any other source, call Jenkins Restorations to keep your family safe and get back your peace of mind.
