How Fire Damage Cleanup Can Affect Your Health

Fire Damage RepairBefore you start to clean after a fire, you need to consider the health issues that come along with this work. You may have problems with the following:

  • Asthma – Cleaning up after a fire when you have asthma is incredibly dangerous. An individual with asthma who inhales too much carbon monoxide, soot, and dioxide are in danger of getting permanent lung damage. They can also be affected by mold that comes along with this kind of damage.
  • Chronic Bronchitis – Many people have to deal with acute bronchitis at least once or twice in their life, but chronic bronchitis is much more severe. This disease can last for a few months or even a number of years. If you clean up without proper protection, you may start to have problems with bronchitis.
  • Skin Issues – Did you know that smoke particles in the air can also affect your skin? If you have sensitive skin, you should have someone clean up your home as soon as possible. If you stay in the environment, your skin may completely dry out.
