The DIY dangers of cleaning smoke damage and soot after a fire in your home. Know the facts.
After a small fire in your home, you may be tempted to do the cleanup yourself, but there are reasons why you should call a smoke damage and odour removal specialist instead.
Smoke and soot damage can cause further harm to fixtures and appliances and can also be a health hazard. Smoke and soot particles remain airborne long after a fire is extinguished. These particles continue to permeate your walls, surfaces and air ducts. This means that you’re not only dealing with the lingering odour, you are also breathing smoke and soot particles into your lungs.
Vacuuming, wiping down the walls, touching the drapes, and any other attempt at cleaning can not only put you at risk of inhaling the dangerous chemicals that are in soot and ash, it could cause further damage to your property. Smoke, ash and soot damage requires specialized cleaning by a professional fire restoration company.
