How Fire Can Damage Impair Your Commercial Property
After the flames of a massive fire have been put out, your commercial building can still be affected by the harms caused by smoke damage. It is typically evident what smoke damage looks like in your property – whether it is charred furniture or soot collecting on the floor. But fire can also cause other lingering side effects that are detrimental to the wellbeing of your building and the health of you, your clients, and employees.
o Smoke Damage – Heat from flames can move soot, the by-product of incomplete combustion, around in your building, causing it to cover everything in its path. Smoke seeks a sort of equilibrium: it travels until its energy has been used up. Soot is found to be on the acidic side of the pH scale. Acidic materials are destructive, degrading metals by oxidization, causing corrosion, discoloration, and pitting.
o Pressure Damage – Tight buildings due to high-quality insulation can create a lot of pressure and smoke. Extinguishing materials, especially water, swells at high rates and produces super-heated steam. These pressures can damage any substrate and cause a building to expand. This can blow out doors, lift rooves, and shatter window glass.
o Water Damage – Water used to suppress fire can also cause a lot of damage to your commercial property. This is because the instant water touches a hot surface it can generate super-heated steam. If the water is left unchecked and becomes stagnant, it
can produce a breeding ground for mold and other unhealthy microorganisms. Still water can also attract rodents and insects into your building.
o Chemical Residue and Hazardous Materials – Fire may create a waste stream of hydrocarbons, acids, and heavy metals. These materials are all hazardous to your health.
It’s imperative to remediate the effects of fire damage with professional fire restoration services.
