When disaster strikes in your home, you want to be sure you have the right people to restore your property and contents. Once the fire department leaves, your home may suffer from water damage caused by firefighting efforts. This is when the fire restoration company comes in.
Specialized fire and water damage restoration training, personnel, and equipment are a necessity to handle fire and water damage and they can quickly restore your home to pre-fire condition. Unfortunately, the dangers of a fire don’t end once the flames go out. The smoke and soot left behind are more than just dirty reminders of the disaster that took place. Exposure to fire-damaged objects and lingering residue could be hazardous to your health.
Restoration, instead of removal and replacement
It is very common for amateurs to simply tear things out and then replace the materials or the items. A professional fire restoration company performs a thorough inspection and identifies those materials and items that can be salvaged and restored to their pre-loss condition. Restoration, instead of removal and replacement, helps contain costs. Exposure to soot in a fire-damaged home is at its highest during the cleanup process. The odor and health effects of smoke could linger for years if you don’t perform thorough and adequate cleaning. This is why you should leave fire restoration to professionals who can employ deep-cleaning techniques to truly restore your home to its pre-fire condition.
A bottle of degreaser and a dust mask are nowhere near enough to properly clean up fire and smoke damage. You can’t simply wipe soot away. You must deep clean all surfaces to eliminate lingering health threats and remove residual odors. Professional tools, knowledge, and specialized cleaning techniques are required to handle such a task.
Restoring your home back to its pre-fire condition is far from a simple task. You have belongings to salvage, cleanup to do, and the home’s structure to repair. Not to mention the insurance claims to minimize the fire’s financial impact. You need a fire restoration company to execute the restoration process properly and to assist you when dealing with your insurance carrier to ensure that you get the most out of your claim.
