fire webDid you have a fire or smoke damage?

Having fire/smoke damage in your home can be overwhelming. There are several problems that arise after a fire has been put out; like smoke damage, soot damage, and smoke odors. In many occasions firefighters use water or fire extinguishers to put out a fire, which require immediate action to dry out your damaged property.

Why it is so important to clean it properly?

In the EPA website / Fires and Your Health we find that “ Smoke is made up of a complex mixture of gases and fine particles produced when wood and other organic materials burn. The biggest health threat from smoke is from the fine particles. These microscopic particles can get into your eyes and respiratory system, where they can cause health problems such as burning eyes, runny nose, and illnesses such as bronchitis. Fine particles also can aggravate chronic heart and lung diseases - and have been linked to premature deaths in people with these conditions.

 

It also mentions “Some people are more at risk such as:

a person with heart or lung disease, such as heart failure, angina, ischemic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, emphysema or asthma.
an older adult, which makes you more likely to have heart or lung disease than younger people.
caring for children, including teenagers, because their respiratory systems are still developing, they breathe more air (and air pollution) per pound of body weight than adults, they’re more likely to be active outdoors, and they’re more likely to have asthma.
a person with diabetes, because you are more likely to have underlying cardiovascular disease.
a pregnant woman, because there could be potential health effects for both you and the developing fetus.”

What does a Fire & Smoke Cleanup Company do?

It is important to know what to expect from us when we arrive.

It is very important to conduct a detailed inspection. We need to know what caused the fire and what materials were burned. What kind of soot residues are around and how much of the property is affected. Is the HVAC ductwork affected? How strong is the smell? Is the power off? Is there any person sensitive to smoke smell inside the house? Are there any valuables that need special attention? Has the fire Marshall finished the investigation? Is the Insurance Company involved? Etc.

Things you can do while help arrives?

First make sure there is not an evident danger or hazard for you or your family. Protect your personal belongings and furniture using aluminum foil or plastic under furniture. You will have so many people coming into you house during this stressful time, secure any valuables, guns, jewelry, etc.

 

We will take care of the rest!
