Removing Insulation After a Fire in the Bay Area

7/9/2018 (Permalink)

This Residential Home had Affected Insulation Removed after a Fire. The Soot and Smoke of the Fire Affected all the Insulation.

Why Remove Insulation After a Fire?

Unfortunately, when a fire strikes it not only burns and destroys its encircling environment, but also spreads and affects other surrounding areas with its soot and smoke.

When the Fires Soot and Smoke penetrates through the Walls that Fires Odor will permeate through the Structures Cavities.  Causing the Smoke Odors to retain in the Insulation that may possibly be within the Structures Cavities.  

Smoke Odor can be covered up; however, depending on the environments temperature the Smoke Odor can possibly come back after a period of time due to Smoke Affected Insulation. Smoke Odor is Invisible and the Insulation Fibers will hold onto that Smoke Odor.  It is recommended that after a Fire the Affected Insulation be removed and replaced during the Fire Restoration Process.
