The Dangers Of Soot & Smoke

Have you ever sat beside a crackling campfire, and found that the smoke exacerbates your asthma or allergies? The soot and smoke left behind following a house fire of any size are much worse than the side effects of a simple wood campfire and can cause a myriad of health problems.

Some of the common side effects of house fire smoke and soot inhalation or contact include:

  • Coughing
  • Shortness Of Breath
  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Headaches
  • Skin Irritation & Dryness
  • Angina
  • Chemical Burns
  • Long Term Illness

Chemical Exposure Risks

Common household items such as your furniture, electronics, carpets, clothing, and building materials in the home structure itself contain combustible items. During a house fire, they can release toxic chemicals that linger in any remaining soot, smoke, and burnt property items.

Exposure to many of these health hazards can leave you open to developing illnesses that last years after the fire.

  • Hydrogen Chloride
  • Hydrogen Sulfide
  • Hydrogen Cyanide
