Know The Three S’s
The three S’s of fire damage capture the three main hazards a fire will have upon your home. They are smoke damage, soot inhalation, and structural damage. Each one of these dangers has the potential to be very dangerous to your home and your health. Smoke damage can permeate its way throughout your entire home. The smoke can get in your walls, floor, carpet, upholstery, and other personal possessions. With the right equipment, a cleaning and restoration company can remove the smoke and its smell from your home in most cases. The most potent danger regarding soot is that it can be very hazardous if inhaled. Soot is composed of microscopic particles burned by the fire which can cause very serious respiratory symptoms, and even cancer, if inhaled. The structural damage caused by a fire can sometimes be so severe as to completely destroy a home. It can also cause just enough damage to look safe but a wrong step could send parts of the home crashing down. Make sure to have your home professionally inspected after a fire to determine if it is still safe to be in.
