The Different Types of Fire Loss

When a business fire sweeps through your property in Fort Collins, CO, there are likely to be many forms of damage. Every fire is a little bit different. The types of fire loss range from a complete loss to smaller fires that only harm a certain area of a building. One or all of these impacts could be present after a fire in your building:

  • Soot damage
  • Water harm
  • Mold growth
  • Odors
  • Heat damage
  • Smoke damage


It takes a trained eye to identify the many possible impacts after a fire. For example, extreme heat could ruin items such as food stuffs even though the items might look okay.


Partial Loss Fires
Many fires leave large portions of a building intact, though soot and smoke will travel through the building and cause harm. With this type of fire loss, it is important to pay attention to many aspects of the cleanup and restoration process. Often the damage is hard to see, as soot and smoke might penetrate the HVAC system. These agents are also likely to create unpleasant odors that come and go. Water damage from fire suppression might create fertile grounds for future mold growth. Fire retardant chemicals could also contaminate personal items, building upholstery and other surfaces.
