Have you had a recent fire and are uninsured?
Fires are more complicated to clean than you think. There are different kinds of residue that settles after a fire. Dry residue clings to the ceilings while walls retain a much more greasier and oily residue. Both types of residue have different properties and thus different cleaning materials are meant to be employed for each purpose.
Fire damage can range from minor smoke damage to complete destruction of a building and its contents. For those affected, this is often entry into unfamiliar territory as many questions are raised after fires: What is the severity of the damage? How do I approach the clean-up? What results should I expect after a clean-up?
Insurance often plays a major role after a fire and insurance personnel usually take care of the restoration process. However, not everyone has ample insurance cover or in some instance, do not have insurance at all. In the latter case, one can be out of pocket in expenses as the monetary value can reach the thousands.
This is why Juvenate is offering its FireKit for a cheap, quick and efficient DIY clean-up after a fire on your property.
Fire Damage Facts
Electrical and ‘preventable’ fires occur in residential and commercial properties throughout the country. The Queensland Fire Emergency Services revealed statistics that had reached 2500 fires in the winter months in the year 2014 and Victoria also reported similar statistics.
Most of these fires were residential and half of these had originated in the kitchen and blamed on lack of attention. The majority of fires took place in the winter months due to electrical faults and issues with heaters.
Harmful Effects of Soot
Disaster may strike without warning and after such an event, it is important to have the right cleaning materials to ensure that the health of your family is not compromised.
The byproduct of a fire is soot which is extremely fine black particles (finer than dust). Soot can negatively impact Indoor Air Quality and can be extremely hazardous to health if left uncleaned. Soot is often invisible to the naked eye and needs to be tested by specialist equipment to be detected.
In the event of a fire, items that have been burnt can spread soot into the surrounding areas and settle on household items such as the walls and on furniture. Serious health issues may become prominent once soot enters into the bloodstream. This could lead to respiratory issues, breathing difficulties, asthma, stroke, bronchitis, heart attack and even premature death.
