Benefits of Smoke Damage Testing
At last, the smoke has cleared and you've returned home to find your house in good shape despite the fury of the recent wildfires. However, soot, char, ash, odor, and carbon black "ghosting" could have you wondering if you should have your home tested for smoke damage. If smoke traveled through your home, smoke damage testing can give you peace of mind, confirm your suspicions, and document your insurance claim.
- Peace of mind – If you're concerned about the potential health effects from smoke, char, ash, soot, and other by-products of fire, smoke testing can accurately determine indoor air quality and the presence of harmful particles. If smoke testing comes up clean, you can rest easy. If not, you have the information you need to remediate the problem.
- Confirm the presence of smoke – Before you can adequately remediate smoke damage, it's important to understand exactly what you are up against. Smoke testing confirms the presence of smoke, black carbon, soot, ash, and other smoke residue in walls, ceilings, floors, insulation, air ducts, building materials, furnishings, clothing, and other surfaces.
- Document insurance claims – Smoke testing from accredited labs provides your insurance company with the proof it needs in order to pay your claim.
