Wildfires can pose a direct threat to people's homes, businesses and communities. For properties not directly touched by wildfire flames, they may still have issues long after the fires have been extinguished.

Wildfires can produce an enormous amount of smoke that can easily infiltrate homes and buildings. This smoke is filled with combustion by-products that include soot, ash and char. Odors, discoloration and "ghosting" effects can result when these combustion byproducts are deposited in buildings on surfaces and belongings.

Smoke residues can have damaging effects to both property and human health and smoke damage often requires proof of damages to settle insurance claims.
