Why Does Restoration Need to Be Done?
Fire is a chemical reaction that involves often as many as 90 chemicals. A typical household or commercial facility has many different types of plastic, metal, cloth, etc., within it. These are fuel for the fire and react differently as well as melting on one another. Therefore, the end result of a fire is that different causes and contents cause differing end results.
Simple fires are often caused by fuel and are not compounded by the presence of plastics or other synthetic items. As a result, these fires often leave no soot and negligible amounts of fumes and soot. Complex fires are those which produce soot, fumes, and odor. These are often caused by the presence of many synthetic items such as carpets, plastic items, rubber and manmade materials, and the damage is generally much worse.
Smoke and fire restoration services are usually called into these sites to perform salvage and cleaning. Gases cause highly corrosive solutions in a fire. Metal surfaces may be etched and discolor. Salts formed in the fire create corrosive solutions which present on a metal surface degrade it. Commonly found items that would be affected by this process are saws, lawnmowers, factory equipment, appliances and plumbing.
Soot, the most commonly known byproduct of a fire, is made of carbon and other oxidized materials. Most soot has a greasy texture and cannot simply be washed away. The soot must be cleaned with a system that reacts with the soot to create a washable, water-soluble state. It must be removed prior to deodorization or further cleaning.
