During a fire, smoke is driven by heat created by flames. No matter where the fire originates, smoke may penetrate throughout a building's structure. Smoke also combines with humidity and can form corrosive residues that may cause secondary damage.
Long after the fire is put out, the damage can continue, as remaining free-floating smoke settles on horizontal surfaces and contents.
Fire does burn but residual smoke may burn as well. This is sometimes called etching, pitting or chemical burning. Quick response and action are critical. The more time that elapses before treatment, the greater the damage.
Much of the material in furniture and flooring is synthetic and when burned can result in complex chemical reactions. In just a few days these items go from cleanable to unsalvageable.
