Where there is smoke there is fire. Fire damage and smoke damage always travel together. You can't have one without the other.
Fire damage is something that is normally replaced because it destroys structural materials beyond repair or cleaning. Drywall, wood, flooring, carpeting, fixtures, trim, baseboard etc.
Smoke damage is many cases can be successfully cleaned off hard materials like glass, mirrors, ceramic surfaces, metal etc.
Particulate from smoke can also cause damage to absorbent materials that may or may not be cleanable. When items cannot be successfully cleaned they usually become a claim item. That means the insurance carrier replaces it. Items like carpeting, upholstered furniture, mattresses, pillows etc.
