How Bad is Smoke & Soot Damage for Your Health in Anchorage & Chugiak?

Invisible smoke & soot residues are extremely risky for your health and degrade the indoor air quality at your home or office. Particles of both smoke and soot will float into every corner of your property via your HVAC system and can easily enter your lungs when you breathe. Both smoke & soot contain carcinogens, which is a major health risk for humans.

Even if these carcinogens do not lead to cancer, which is possible, they will cause respiratory ailments, allergic reactions, skin rashes, and more. The greater threat, however, is long-term issues such as lung damage, cancer, and more.

Smoke & Soot Are Bad for Your Property in Anchorage, Meadow Lakes, & Big Lake

In addition to health problems, smoke & soot cause financial damage as well. From electronics to metallic structural supports, it can cause corrosion if left untreated. Other consequences include discoloration, stains, smoky odors, and other unwanted issues that can put your property in danger. The presence of particulates in your HVAC system will not only spread smoke and soot throughout your property but will diminish the unit's performance and lead to costly repairs.

Steps to Take to Avoid or Reduce Smoke and Soot Damage

The best and most effective way to be protected from smoke and soot damage is to prevent fire accidents in advance. That requires some planning ahead and due diligence. Examples included placing flammable objects away from the fireplace or stove, planning escape routes in the event of a fire, and finding ways to minimize the spread of smoke and soot while the fire is burning to minimize the loss. This can be done by closing the doors and windows of the affected room after the evacuation. Most importantly, you must try to extinguish the fire as much as possible in addition to summoning the fire department.
