Fire and Smoke Damage?
According to the “National Fire Protection Association” : “In 2011, there were 1,389,500 fires reported in the United States. These fires caused 3,005 civilian deaths, 17,500 civilian injuries, and $11.7 billion in property damage… 484,500 were structure fires, causing 2,640 civilian deaths, 15,635 civilian injuries, and $9.7 billion in property damage.”
Fire and smoke damage can be very complex and costly due to the penetrating behavior of smoke. Smoke can travel to adjacent rooms (not directly involved with the fire) through holes and around the pipes in your plumbing system. Beneath the damage you can see, lurks the hidden danger and stench of smoke residue.
