October 2007 is a month most Southern Californians will never forget. That was the month a series of wildfires burned nearly 1,500 homes and 500,000 acres of land from Santa Barbra county to the US-Mexican border. Entire areas were evacuated forcing people to grab their loved ones and whatever they could pack into their cars in a short period of time to escape the fires.
When the fires died down and people returned to their homes, they returned to neighborhoods where one house was spared while the house next door was burned down. Houses that appeared from the outside to be untouched smelled of smoke and were covered in soot inside. Even though the houses escaped direct contact with the fires, they were damaged and needed to be repaired.
Smoke and fire damage can have lasting effects on your home if you do not repair it correctly. It’s important to call a fire and smoke damage restoration company to assess the damage, communicate with your insurance company and remove all smoke/soot from your home. Residues left behind by fire need to be treated by professionals. Sometimes the damage is so great that walls need to be replaced to eliminate the smell of smoke from your home.
