Smoke Poses a Severe Threat to Home Electronics
Smoke Is a Serious Threat to Electronics in the Home.
Fire can damage your home in ways you never considered. Smoke, for example, spreads tiny particulates throughout your home. Standard fire cleanup procedures handle most of this damage, but your electronics may still be at risk. Smoke can deposit corrosive residue on sensitive electronic components and circuit boards. In time, the corrosion may cause the device to fail. The solution is to evaluate all your devices for smoke damage and consider the recommended actions.
Insurance Coverage Affects Your Decision to Evaluate and Repair or Replace.
It is a good bet that your decisions regarding damage to home electronics have a lot to do with who is paying. You will probably follow insurance company instructions if they are paying for everything without a deductible. You will want to be more selective if you are paying. Here are some things to consider.
1. The device was in a smoky area of your home, and the internal fan was running. If this device is important to you, it is the perfect candidate for fire cleanup. The internal fan that keeps the device cool instead filled the enclosure with smoke. Turn it off immediately. The device should be evaluated and probably cleaned or replaced.
2. The device was in a smoky area of your home but was turned off. You should have this device evaluated if it is important to you. It should have suffered minimal damage with the fan turned off.
3. The device was not important to you. The device might be an old TV or computer that you would rather replace than repair.
