Smoke Damage Restoration in Shoreview with Northwest ServiceMaster

February 29th, 2016 · No Comments

If you could experience a cloud of smoke at the microscopic level, you’d know why it’s often the most damaging and deadly part of any fire. Even seemingly “clean” wood smoke contains organic irritants and toxic compounds. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, it can even include dormant mold spores. Smoke damage in a home or business in Shoreview, Minnesota or the nearby communities is nothing to take lightly. Unless it’s fully and professionally removed from all surfaces, smoke residue continues to harm both the property and the health of the residents. That’s why Northwest ServiceMaster is the best option for smoke damage restoration in Shoreview.

Smoke contains what scientists call “particulate matter,” which is the bits of stuff that are larger than molecules but still too small to see by themselves. Once those particles enter a person’s lungs, they can cause a wide range of health issues, including non-fatal heart attacks, airway irritation, difficulty breathing, coughing, and decreased lung function overall. It gets worse. If someone is already prone to asthma, is elderly, is a smoker, or has had pneumonia or respiratory issues, even exposure to toxic smoke can put them in the hospital. The EPA also says particulates can cause premature death in people with lung or heart disease.

Smoke from modern materials can be even more damaging. Many construction materials contain petrochemicals that change composition when burned and then affix themselves to surfaces, reacting a second time with the components of those items.
