Direct flame damage: This damage is the most difficult to deal with, this damage is to building materials and items, which have been partially or totally consumed by the direct flames of the fire. Items and building materials that took direct flame damage often but not always need to be replaced.
Heat Damage: This is damage caused by the immense heat of a property fire. Building materials and personal possessions damaged by heat can be salvaged, repaired or restored back to their former state often times by a trained fire damage restoration expert, if these experts are called in quickly enough.
Smoke & Soot damage: This is the most common and pervasive damage left behind by a fire. Smoke and soot will cover and permeate everything left behind. This smoke and soot residue will leave behind a foul odor, as well as corrode, damage or stain anything it comes into contact with. Smoke and soot damage will require professional cleaning and treatment to remove.
Water damage: This damage must also be taken into account. Water will also mix with the soot and smoke creating a toxic liquid that will corrode, damage or stain building materials and personal possessions. This damage increases over time and requires a quick response time and action to mitigate.
