The Invisible Dangers of Smoke Damage

slight smoke damage on the ceiling of a home If you look closely to the ceiling, you can see slight discoloration due to smoke damage.

Major fires lead to major damage. However, if you’ve faced a minor fire in your home, you might think you’ve avoided any damages at all. Just because you can’t see the effects of fire, doesn’t mean they’re not there.

The most common, and most dangerous effect of fires, is smoke damage. Sometimes, the damage isn’t even visible to the eye. Nonetheless, smoke damage is dangerous even when it’s not visible. Smoke damage leaves invisible and toxic gasses as contaminants in the air. Gases such as carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, and phosgene can leave foul smells and contribute to health problems.

If you have smoke damage, it’s better to call the experts than to try and handle the issue yourself. SERVPRO of Branford / Shoreline has an expert team who are trained to mitigate smoke damage in your home or business. Give us a call to make your smoke disaster “Like it never even happened.”
