Fire Damage In Concord Can Be Caused By The Combustion Of Various Items.

Structural blazes happen more frequently than you can imagine, and your home in Concord could be at risk if an accident takes place. Once a spark ignites, fire damage can quickly occur due to the heat and smoke coming from the burn. Once your contents and building materials ignite, the flames can start consuming other items nearby as fuel. The quicker the flames get extinguished, the fewer problems with burnt and charred materials can occur.

Much of the fire damage in Concord that takes place gets caused by the smoke created by the blaze. During a structural burn, some of the items consumed as fuels combust or instantly turn from a solid to a gas with the application of heat. However, other particles only get partially combusted and get released into your house's atmosphere in the form of smoke. When the smoke coming from your structural blaze is still hot, it rises toward your ceilings and then flows to other rooms inside your building. But, once it contacts cooler surfaces such as the building materials that make up your walls and ceilings, it can harden in the form of soils and soot residues.

When mitigating fire or smoke-related issues, a professional company such as SERVPRO knows that understanding how the blazes burn is vital. Combustion occurs when material burns, and then they get quickly turned into a gas. However, combustion is not a given process, and many of the materials partially combust and turn into smoke. Smoke can consist of solid particles, gases, and aerosols. 

Our SERVPRO technicians know that the gases inside smoke consist of by-products generated, such as carbon monoxide and hydrogen cyanide. But, once the flames get extinguished, these gases stop causing a threat to your building's occupants. The aerosol particles inside smoke consist of a combination of fine solid particles and gases. These aerosols are what absorb malodor particles and cause unpleasant aromas to exist after the blaze gets extinguished. 

Understanding how articles fully and partially combust is a key to restoring damage caused after your structural burn. If you ever need professional assistance after items burn inside your home, call SERVPRO of Concord at (603) 225-2825 24/7.
