Residual damage is damage caused by the use of fire extinguishers.
With a powder extinguisher, the powder will nestle itself everywhere including on the circuit boards of all electrical equipment.
Because the powder is an aggressive salt it will attract moist, leading to oxidation of the connections on the circuit boards and the products becoming defective.
This means that the use of such an extinguisher in the kitchen will lead to a necessary replacement of your refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, oven, coffee machine, etc.
