Smoke Damage Health Risks to Keep In Mind
Unfortunately, when it comes to house fires, the danger for your family doesn’t end when the fire is put out. Lingering effects including smoke damage on the walls, in textiles, carpets, clothing, and more, can have a long term effect on your health if not dealt with properly. Extended exposure to smoke damage in the home has been shown to cause serious health issues including:
- Shortness of breath
- Eye and skin irritation
- Heart or lung problems
If you or a family member suffer from asthma or another health issue they may experience the side effects of smoke inhalation more severely than others. It’s important that before moving back into your home, you have the smoke and odor damage treated professionally. Our Kinston fire restoration experts are here to help with professional smoke cleaning services.
