What is so different about a fire damaged surface and how can DryZone help?
A fire that you control, such as when you light your bbq grill or a warm, cozy fireplace – usually involves the
burning of one particular kind of material, such as firewood or charcoal. A building fire is an example of an uncontrolled fire that involves the burning
of many different types of material, such as plastics, paint, fibers, paper and much more. The
smoke that is generated from these types of fires is often thick and full of oily soot that is accompanied by an acrid odor that
permeates other areas that were not destroyed.
In most cases, especially when the fire department is involved, the fire is extinguished before it can destroy the entire structure, so not only are you worried about smoke damage, but water damage as well. In the case water is used, the water dissolves much of
the soot and other by-products that were created when the materials were burned and carries them into any porous surface, such as
brick, drywall, plaster, wood, tile and stone. What then happens is that many of the surfaces within the structure are greatly affected, whether it
involves water marks, soot deposits, strong smoke odors or mildew.
