According to the National Fire Protection Association’s research, approximately two homes in America catch fire every three minutes. The structures that manage to survive the initial blaze tend to have at least some smoke and fire damage. Our ozone experts are well familiar with resolving smoke damage issues.
For instance, did you know that there are different types of smoke that are generated during a fire? It’s true. The type of smoke is determined by the amount of oxygen and humidity levels involved in the blaze. The fuel sources can also clearly play a role. In general, most fires produce either free-floating or driven smoke. They frequently leave behind a wet or dry residue.
In our experience, one of the ideal ways to contend with all types of smoke and fire damage is to invest in an ozone generator. When used properly, it can rid the air of any remaining acrid, fire related odors and ash based, airborne particulates. It is crucial to remove such odors and materials as soon as possible for three simple reasons.
First, they can severely irritate living creature’s respiratory systems. That irritation can cause a person or animal to experience burning sensations in their throat, nose and lungs. It can also cause the person or animal to have difficulty catching their breath. Second, they can cause the eyes to water and become irritated too. Third, prolonged exposure to those types of situations can contribute towards the development of lung cancer, asthma and other serious health problems.
