When a fire ignites in a home or business, it’s obvious that the intense heat and flames will cause damage—less obvious, however, is the harmful aftermath, and how its effects may be even more damaging.
A fire any size, anywhere can be devastating, but once the flames are put out and the smoke clears, the real devastation is revealed. From smouldering rubble to the smell of smoke and shadow of soot, a fire can result in extensive damage not only to your property, but to your health, too.
Smoke and soot are two of the damaging aspects that result from a fire. While the smoke in the air may have subsided, its smell and particles have not. Instead, almost every material item in your home—couches, linens, clothes, and beyond—has soaked up its odor. Additionally, soot remains to be seen on the floors, walls, ceilings—almost everywhere. Both are not only unpleasant, but also create a hazardous environment. Inhaling fine particles from smoke or soot can cause a variety of health conditions, mainly respiratory and breathing issues, and can also cause existing conditions to worsen, such as asthma and heart disease. Aside from health problems, smoke and soot create unsightly blemishes to your property, such as:
- Stained clothes, upholstery, draperies, etc.
- Yellow paint and wallpaper
- Stained surfaces
- Degraded chrome-plated surfaces
