However, the good news is that, at ServiceMaster of Spartanburg, we have professionals who will take care of smoke damage and ensure that your house is smoke-free.

Did you know that smoke, even in its inactive state, can be dangerous to your health? The substances that make up the smoke remain even after the smoke is long gone therefore you should never ignore smoke damage in your home.
Smoke health hazards

Some of the common health hazards associated with smoke damage at home include:

  • Respiratory Issues: smoke hidden in areas within your home can lead to respiratory problems; soot from smoke never really clears, hence if you inhale these substances you risk damaging your respiratory organs.
  • Skin Issues: smoke substances such as soot are harmful if they come in contact with your skin. They may even lead to skin diseases. Therefore, it is important to rid your house of all smoke residue by using the services of cleaning experts at ServiceMaster of Spartanburg.
  • Eye Irritation: if your eyes come into contact with smoke residue, you will experience eye irritation that may advance to a severe eye problem. If smoke comes into contact with the eyes of someone with an allergy condition it may even worsen the situation.
