Hi, we had a house fire three weeks ago, and have been busy getting estimates, making our personal property list, and adjusting to hotel living. The insurance adjuster said they will have to continue demolision of the house, down to the concrete slab and wall studs.
My question is if the walls in certain rooms didn't suffer fire damage, but heavy smoke and water damage, should the studs be treated in any way prior to putting up the new drywall? As far as I know, the walls in the 2 bedrooms didn't suffer actual fire damage, so the studs should not be charred; however, the entire attic went up in flames, so the entire house was heavily smoke damaged.
