Looking for effective smoke damage cleaning services in York County?
You’ve come to the right place!
According to the US Fire Administration (USFA), fire incidents caused property damage worth a whopping 23 billion dollars in the US in 2017. If you think you’re totally immune to a fire emergency, think again. Fires do not inform or alert anyone before erupting. There have been cases when the flames appeared from nowhere, and the cause of the incident was never revealed.
Also, the damages extend well beyond fire itself. The smoke that’s released from flames spread all over the property to surfaces where the flames never reached. Therefore, firefighting won’t be enough. Once the fire has been extinguished, smoke damage cleaning is essential.
What is Affected by Smoke?
The walls and roof of your home, as well as all items present, are susceptible to smoke damage, even those that were nowhere close to where the fire emerged. In not more than a few minutes, finishes of kitchen appliances can turn yellow and walls and other surfaces may become discolored. In addition, smoke tarnishes metal quickly as leads to etching in glass. Materials that are left behind and are easily salvageable may also sustain further damage from smoke and ash. Without effective smoke damage cleaning, the smoke odor will persist throughout the space and keep bothering you and your family for extended periods of time.
More importantly, smoke damage directly impacts human health. Inhaling smoke or being exposed to it other ways have been linked to a myriad of skin issues, breathing problems, eye irritation, and long-term health risks. Children, infants, elderly, and all those with a weakened immune system remain particularly at risk. The biggest threat is associated with microscopic fine particles, which are known to penetrate deep into lungs. Not only can they cause serious allergic issues but also result in aggravated chronic lung and heart diseases. For those with pre-existing health conditions, soot inhalation can also lead to premature death.
