Anytime a fire starts indoors, the aftermath is devastating. If your Loudon home is ever the victim of a severe blaze, many different types of damage possibly occur. A fire's flames, heat, and smoke all cause different kinds of damage to the contents and building materials inside your house.
Sometimes fires behave strangely, and all of the damage caused is not obvious. It is wise to call SERVPRO's fire damage specialists in Loudon to ensure every area damaged gets the necessary attention. Smoke often travels to areas of the building away from the source that causes soot residues and unpleasant odors.
Whenever dealing with a fire situation, our SERVPRO technicians study how flames and smoke behave. The damage created during the burn is different in every case. Many factors affect how severely a home gets damaged in a blaze.
After a burn, the amount of damage created depends on what materials got burned and the amount of heat, oxygen, and moisture present. Airflow inside the building and the types of smoke residues present also play a role in determining how severe a structure gets damaged. Another factor that affects the cleanability of the damage present is the type of surface smoke and heat effect.

The type of surface smoke comes in contact with changes how the surface gets damaged. Porous surfaces allow soot residues and odors to penetrate deeply into the material and are more challenging to clean than non-porous surfaces. Synthetic fibers tend to collect more soot but are easier to clean than natural fibers.
Another factor that changes how easily an object is to clean is the age of the surface. As a general rule, the older the surface is, the harder it is to clean. This rule holds whether the surface is paint, carpet, or fabric.
To make sure all smoke and soot get adequately cleaned after fire damage, it is wise to seek professional help. Remember, you can call SERVPRO of Loudon & Roane Counties at (865) 986-3015 for 24/7 assistance.
