Most people do not understanding that removing the soot and smoke damage from a surface does not actually restore the surface to its original condition. The fire itself causes a particular acid to be produced as a bi-product of the flames and intense heat; this acid is very corrosive and penetrates surfaces such as metal quite badly. At Disaster Restorations we understand that it is crucial to remove this acidity and neutralise the damaged surface to avoid long-term corrosion problems. We treat each case differently, as the nature of the fire can have a large impact on the destruction caused by the fire, and the chemicals needed to correctly remove the damage.
