There Is More To A Fire Than Just Smoke

6/22/2020 (Permalink)

Exposure to smoke, ashes, and soot from a fire can have harmful effects to your home and health. Long-term exposure to toxins found in smoke, ashes, and soot can contaminate and damage your home as well as cause health effects.

It's possible your home may have dangerous toxins.

If your home has recently been exposed to smoke, ashes, or soot from a fire, it's possible that dangerous particles and contaminates have settled into your home. And although smoke damage can be visible to the eye, it can also be invisible and hard to trace, hiding in hard to reach places. Behind furniture, attics, air ducks, and other air cleaning systems.

A simple clean or wipe down is not enough, and in most cases, can even worsen your situation.

Improper cleaning can further spread dangerous toxins to other areas of the house not affected by a fire. Turning on fans and other HVAC units too can further spread toxins throughout your home, making your home a fire and toxin hazard. Smoke odor and toxins may also remain in furniture, clothing, carpet, and other places after a fire, unless properly cleaned and deodorized. Professional chemicals and equipment are needed to eliminate smoke, ashes, soot, odor and other dangerous toxins. Preparing and Informing yourself for a fire can be the best thing you can do for your home and your health.
