Dealing with smoke damage can be a complicated and arduous process, so it is good to know the exact type of damage you are looking to rectify. Once the fire is safely put out, it is recommended to first contact your insurance provider immediately; they can provide advice on restoration or replacement of damaged items. If you rent, the owners must be notified so the damaged can be assessed by both parties. Insurance agents may be able to recommend a professional fire restoration service. Fire restorers help provide advice to prevent further damage, help determine which items can or cannot be restored, and help provide estimates and services for cleaning and deodorizing the building.
We think we’re safe and sound after the fire dies down, but there can still be underlying dangers left behind from the fire that will eventually result in smoke damage. If you’ve had fire damage to your home, you’ve also likely inherited smoke damage. If smoke damage is ignored, it can cause extensive corrosion, etching and discolouration, not to mention lingering powerful odours. There are many helpful online DIY tips on how to get rid of smoke damage, but to stop the problem once and for all, you should consult a professional company.
