With fire restoration, time is of the essence. The more time you lose, the more your home will lose. Restoration is a process that must commence as quickly as possible to salvage what can be salvaged. Firefighters, rightfully so, are not concerned about upholstered furniture or hardwood floors when doing their job. If your home has been the victim of water or fire damage, there are a few things you should know and do to help get it back into shape.
Damage to electrical wiring is a major concern, and in the event of a natural disaster, even the water coming from your faucet may be contaminated. In every situation, it’s best to play it safe and have a fire restoration company assess and approve your home’s structural integrity before you continue living in it.
Anytime your home suffers fire damage, there’s going to be a massive cleanup. The areas affected directly will probably have to be restored and/or remodeled to ensure structural stability. Beyond that, fire and smoke residue present serious respiratory health risks, and the odor of a fire can be extremely difficult to get rid of.
Ventilation is crucial. Open all the windows and use fans in the affected rooms to help get rid of the odor, and then have the fire restoration technicians do the really dirty work. They know all the procedures and have equipment that homeowners don’t have access to.
