Smoke and soot created when fires is quenched speeds up the damage of a building and its important assets. Moreover, these fires are mostly extinguished using water or chemicals that are dry. The poisonous smoke odor produced by quenching the fire must be eliminated; it has some negative impacts as mentioned below.
Effects of Soot and Smoke
When fire consumes a material, smoke is produced and sticks to any surface it finds, e.g. electronics, fabrics, furniture and walls together with the ceiling. Conventional cleaning may assist in eliminating any visible dirt, but smoke that penetrates into crevices and cracks is impossible to remove.
Moreover, the smoke can erode surfaces gradually thereby initiating more destruction over time. Smoke odor sticks around for long, it’s very much poisonous and can cause illness or irritation to both human beings and pets in your house. Exposure to water corrodes metals over time leading to rust. Fires accelerate corrosion and rusting due to smoke, and this may lead to the falling off of a structure posing a danger to its residents. Apart from falling on the inhabitants, there is also the risk of tetanus from accidentally scratching themselves on rusted metal.
