Learn about the many dangers of untreated smoke damage.

When homeowners experience a fire in their home, their property becomes ruined from fire and smoke damage. Smoke damage gets worse the longer it goes untreated, so it’s crucial to clean the home as quickly as possible to minimize the impact and save your household items. Also, smoke exposure can have many effects on your health, so it’s crucial to call a smoke damage restoration service as soon as possible.

Longer Restoration Process

The longer you wait to clean smoke damage, the longer and more expensive the restoration process will be. Waiting too long to treat smoke damage results in the damage getting more difficult to deal with, and the odor only becomes stronger and harder to neutralize. As the smoke restoration process takes a longer time to complete, the more time consuming- and possibly expensive- the process becomes.


As smoke and ash mix with water, they can produce a very corrosive element that can ruin surfaces of your home. The substance slowly corrodes away walls, floors, and ceilings, and is not easy to clean. If the substance corrodes your home, you will need to use chemicals to remove it and avoid more damage.

Permanent Damage

If you let smoke damage sit too long, your property may suffer permanent damage. Smoke damages sets in just hours after a fire, and extended exposure can cause your walls to turn yellow, metal to corrode, and floors may need to be replaced. Avoid these expensive damages by calling a fire and smoke damage restoration service as soon as it is safe to do so. Seeking smoke treatment immediately will not only save your property but will also keep you safe from the effects of smoke exposure.
