Fire damage on your property

The longer you leave a fire damaged property the worse the damages will be. Soot and smoke will continue to wreak havoc for a while after the incident. Ash residue corrodes surfaces over time and if not professionally cleaned your possessions, walls, furniture etc may be left permanently discoloured. Clothes and upholstered furniture will be unsalvageable and any wood finishes, paint etc will need to be redone. 

Fire damage to your health

Staying in a property that has had a fire whether you can visibly see smoke damage or not can be a serious risk to your health. Smoke contains carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and soot these chemicals linger in the air and prolonged exposure to these smoke particles can cause respiratory distress as well as skin irritation. 

As well as the health risks of staying in a fire-damaged property you are also at risk of structural dangers. When structural steel is exposed to flames it will lose its strength and stiffness, this causes excessive or permanent deformation which can lead to a structural collapse. By continuing to use a fire-damaged building you are putting yourself at serious risk.
