Smoke Damage Lawyers
After devastating TX wildfires, many homeowners return to the neighborhoods and discover that while their homes didn't burn down, they've been affected by smoke. If your home was exposed to smoke, it could have both visible and hidden smoke damage. Recovering from smoke damage can be extremely costly and may require the services of smoke damage lawyers to ensure that your insurance company pays the full amount to which you are entitled under your policy.
How Smoke Damages Homes
Smoke is composed of harmful gases and carbonized material with microscopic particles that can infiltrate brick walls, drywall, plaster, insulation, wood work, cabinets, and more. While the smoke itself may eventually blow away, smoke residue is left in its wake emitting odors and burrowing into soft surfaces. In addition to the material damage, some residents of smoke damaged homes have complained of upper respiratory symptoms, sore throats, itchy eyes, and allergies.
Why Smoke Damage Cleanup is Costly
If your home has smoke damage, it will likely need extensive remediation that extends far beyond airing out the home and cleaning the carpets. For example, microscopic smoke particles in wall insulation can stink up the home for years. The solution? Removing the drywall and replacing the wall insulation inside.
