Smoke can be damaging in many ways.

Recently, British Columbia has been experiencing extremely hot and dry weather.

Reportedly, there are over 200 active forest fires at present. With that, smoke damage has become a real threat for many.



Our primary concern should be the safety of ourselves, our family, friends and neighbours.

Additionally, there are other factors to consider when it comes to smoke damage.

One concern is that having electrical equipment exposed to these kinds of conditions can be challenging.


For example, it can cause your devices to overheat, which can lead to system failure.

The smoke brings with it soot, and soot brings acidity. This acidity is extremely harmful to the metals on your electronics.

What can be done to remove smoke damage?

You need to be extremely careful if you happen to have damaged electronical equipment.

Don’t turn on any of the items unless you have consulted a professional and are sure it is safe. The device is likely to fail due to the corroding acid if left in its current state.

What you should do is quickly wipe it down and then try to restore it to its former state.

Smoke Damage

Additionally, we always need to be careful of internal fires and be prepared in the event of an emergency. Smoke damage from these types of fires can be irreversible.

In case of these situations, it is best to have off-site backups in place to restore from later.

We want everyone to stay protected, no matter which situation unfolds.
