A fire produces more than just flames when it begins to destroy your property, including ash, soot, and smoke. If these contaminants aren’t adequately removed from your space, they will continue deteriorate materials while putting you at risk for long-term health problems. The water released by sprinklers and firefighters can also cause water damage or mold that further damages your health. ABC Restoration offers expert fire and smoke damage services in Houston to protect you from these long-lasting effects after a fire.

Smoke Inhalation Health Effects
It can be tempting to attempt to manage fire damage with DIY solutions. However, this is likely not the best approach, as smoke, soot, and ash can move beyond the area where the fire was initiated and cause long-term damage throughout your home.
Potential health issues caused by smoke include:
- Skin, eye, or respiratory discomfort
- Shortness of breath
- Cardiovascular disease
You can be exposed to smoke, soot, or ash contaminants through your skin, eyes, inhalation, or ingestion, leaving you at risk for health complications. That’s why it’s essential to get out of the burning building as soon as possible. Smoke and ash are only some of the byproducts of a fire. Soot is created by the melting of materials and often releases chemicals, sulfur, and alcohol, and should be appropriately removed by professionals.
Even if the fire was contained in one area, the effects of smoke, soot, and ash could easily travel throughout your entire space, leaving behind foul odors, damaged materials, and corrosion. Our expert services for fire and smoke damage in Houston comprehensively remove these particles.
When you count on ABC Restoration to return your space to its previous glory, we’ll take every necessary step for a comprehensive solution. We’ll begin by assessing the damage, providing a free quote, and creating a restoration plan. If you have insurance, taking pictures and talking to your insurance company will be critical in this first step, so you don’t become responsible for restoration costs.
If there’s been significant structural damage, we’ll secure the building to ensure it’s safe for our team to operate. Typically, high volumes of water have been used by firefighters or sprinklers to put out the fire, which leaves your structure vulnerable to water damage and mold growth. Water extraction and drying are completed before we can adequately see the rot and damage caused by the fire.
Any irreparable materials will be demolished and removed. This usually includes structural materials; however, appliances, fabrics, and unfinished wood can be challenging to sanitize and may have to be removed. This is part of the soot and smoke mitigation that will also include cleaning, sanitizing, and refinishing any salvageable materials.
Finally, we’ll restore your home or business as much as possible so you can reenter the space. ABC Restoration has over 50 years of experience in the restoration industry.
