Almost everybody has had at least a small grease fire in the kitchen or forgotten a casserole in the oven and the smoke alarm started beeping. Some may think that this isn’t necessarily such a bad thing and that there’s no cause for alarm. But fire damage in Denver can pose some serious risks for your health. That’s because people don’t always know how to handle things that are burning and can end up hurting themselves.
For instance, not all fires can be put out with water. If you try to put out oil that is burning by throwing some water on it, you might get burned by the flash it makes. Also, remembering to keep a safe distance from any flame is something that people sometimes forget to do.
The fire damage Denver homes experience is also dangerous because where there is fire there is almost always smoke. Smoke inhalation can be very dangerous to the lungs and can do damage a long time after the fire itself has been put out. That’s because once smoke gets into the lungs it stays there and gets absorbed in the lining of the lung. That smoke is filled with harmful chemicals that can enter the bloodstream and make you very sick.
