What is acid rain?
Acid rain is not a direct health risk to humans — at its strongest, it's about as acidic as lemon juice — but it is bad for forest, lake, and river ecosystems.

    You can have the equivalent of acid rain inside after a fire. Smoke is acidic and if the walls and ceiling are not promptly washed and repainted, that acidic smoke (low PH) combined with natural humidity will chemically react with plaster walls which are high PH, and the plaster will crumble. This happened a few years ago at our church after a fire. Quick response from our fire department stopped the fire before flames reached the roof and would have caused the whole building to collapse, but the repainting cost was almost $500,000 for a structure built in 1860 that is on the National Register of Historic Places.
