Fire damage: The dangers you can’t see
When you think about fire damage, it’s relatively easy to visualize. Fires leaves behind a mess of charred debris, soot, smoke, and ash. While all of these things can be hazardous to humans, the most dangerous thing that fires potentially leave behind are invisible asbestos deposits and the combustion deposits of lead paint. These chemicals are especially damaging to children.
Homes and buildings built prior to 1980 may contain asbestos and lead paint. In these cases, professional remediation is extremely important.
