Wildfire Response in Butte County
On November 8th, 2018 in Butte County, Northern California, a fire starts in a secluded area near the Feather River. As firefighters are trying to reach the fire, it spreads to about 10 acres in half an hour. After seventeen days, on November 25th, 2018, the fire reached 100% containment. The Camp Fire destroyed more than 18,800 structures and has become the deadliest and most destructive wildfire on record in the State of California.
After the fires were contained, residents and business owners began dealing with the smoke damage. Smoke damage from wildfires can cause a wide range of issues with the property and health, as such, it is best to have this damage cleaned up as soon as possible.
If left untreated, the health risks, living and working in smoke damaged structures include potential problems with your breathing, skin, and eyes. Though the smoke is no longer present, the effects of the smoke linger in furniture, carpet, walls and ceiling of the structure. Each time that you come in contact with the smoke damaged area of your property, you risk inhaling soot and other particles that are left behind after the fire has cleared.
