At Bishop Clean Care in Albany, GA, we know that there is more to a disaster than the first response. Cleaning up after a disaster can carry with it its own safety and health hazards.

 

Structural Integrity
If your home is involved in a fire, it is important not to reenter the structure until the fire department gives you the all-clear. Some fires may not full burn themselves out for hours. Other fires will render stairs, roofs, and other home support structures unstable. While most of your items can be replaced, your safety should always be your first concern.

 

Chemical Issues
Some houses involved in fires will expose dangerous chemicals to the air. Lead paint and asbestos are two of the most common hazards present in a home. While these chemicals are relatively safe when they are undisturbed, they become dangerous when they are released into the air in the form of dust. Calling in professional cleaners in Albany, GA, will ensure that you remain safe even in the face of dangerous chemicals.
