Protect Your Health After a Fire With Restoration Services in Eau Claire

fire damage restoration services in eau claireWhen you need fire damage restoration in Eau Claire, you can (and should) call TRAC Solutions right away. It is pretty clear to see how beneficial having our team of trained, certified, and experienced technicians working on your home will provide the best outcome, but one thing that is not always clear to see following a fire is just how dangerous restoration can be. The byproducts left behind in the soot and ash can, and often do, contain harmful chemicals and toxins that threaten your health. This is because certain items release chemicals and other toxins upon combustion, meaning they do not burn clean. The waste products left behind after items burn yield soot and ash, meaning they are more than just messy – they are literally toxic.

Fire Damage Restoration Services in Eau Claire

Exposure to smoke, soot, ash, and any other debris left behind from a fire is dangerous. Whether through direct contact or inhalation, there are so many risks you take upon yourself when attempting to handle fire damage restoration on your own. Just a few of the symptoms that arise as a result of exposure to these substances are:

  • Respiratory distress
  • Coughing
  • Congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Asthmatic attacks
  • Bronchitis
  • Shortness of breath
  • Lung infections
  • Sore throat
  • Eye sensitivity, redness, itching, and watering
  • Runny nose
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Irritation to skin, rashes, and burns
  • Cardiac distress
  • Cancer

If these symptoms aren’t scary enough on their own, they are more exaggerated in the elderly, infants, and those who are immunocompromised. Yikes. Attempting to wipe down surfaces or remove the ash will only disrupt these particles more, sending them out through the air, and increase exposure risks. The last thing you need following a fire in your home is to have any further health complications for you or your loved ones. This is why we have a team of trained, licensed, experienced, and equipped technicians on call standing by to handle any damages caused by a fire. 

We know the risks and dangers that come hand-in-hand with fire damage, especially the ones that are still present long after the flames have been extinguished. We utilize the best industry proven techniques, practices, and equipment to safely, thoroughly, effectively, and did we mention safely remove all the smoke, soot, ash, and other harmful residue left behind after a fire. We make sure to practice safe techniques and actions that pass the IICRC standards for fire damage restoration, eliminating the risk you take on by exposing yourself to harmful contaminants when attempting to handle fire damage restoration on your own. There is just no need  to put yourself through any more trauma when dealing with one of the most traumatic things that can happen to your Eau Claire home – not when TRAC Solutions is here for you. 

Please remember that some of the most harmful damage following a fire is not always apparent and that any space that has sustained fire damage is inherently dangerous. It is hazardous to work in a fire damaged space without the correct protective gear and cleaning materials, so just don’t do it. Instead, make the call to TRAC Solutions and we will handle the entire fire damage restoration for you.
