- Heat damage occurs in those areas closest to the flames, as combustion causes the temperature to rise. This type of damage includes burning, melting, and warping of belongings, finishes, and structural components.
- Smoke and ash can cause extensive damage throughout your home, even in areas that were never exposed to flames. The chemicals deposited by smoke and ash will continue to cause damage and deterioration in the weeks following a fire if prompt fire damage restoration does not occur.
- Water damage is commonly associated with fires because water is frequently used to put out flames quickly. Pressurized jets of water can cause property damage that includes flooding, water damage, mold growth, and general structural damage associated with the force of the water used.
- Firefighters may also cause necessary damage to your home to reach occupants inside for rescue or to increase ventilation to aid in firefighting efforts. As with smoke and water damage, this can occur in areas that were never directly exposed to heat.
