Forum Title: Does a house fire have affect in new paint
Recently we had a small fire in the basement. We are currently out of our home and are living in a trailer. All flooring is out 75% of drywall and all flooring in the basement area. They say some of the drywall is salvageable in the basement. The upstairs suffered moderate smoke damage. There was smoke tar running down the top 2 feet of some walls. They are going to paint the upstairs ceilings for sure. But at one point they said they would be painting upstairs. Now it looks like they are only going to clean the wall surfaces. My question is. Does smoke from a fire and then professionally cleaned by the restoration company have any affects on the paint. We had the whole upstairs professionally painted 3 months back. I'm wondering if the cleaning will take some of the new feel and look out of the new paint. We are a little unsure of why you'd paint the basement and ceilings. But not the walls. The smoke did have to come up the stair well... thank you for any documented information. Or any information at all would help... thanks again.

depends on a lot of factors, but mainly how cheap of paint was used in the first place. A high quality paint would more than likely have a much smoother surface profile so it would clean off much easier. But in all honesty I doubt that it will look like new after the smoke and clean up.
