Steps Of Fire Damage Restoration
The firemen may have put out the fire in your house, but the process of getting your house back to normal doesn’t stop here. The process of fire damage restoration has just begun. To revive your house to it’s original condition, you will need professional service. Restoring your house from fire damage is not an easy task, so don’t try to do it yourself. Not only will you waste energy, but you may even cause further damage. Having a house fire can be a scary and exhausting experience for any homeowner. Thus, you must remain calm and walk through all the steps to ensure the your safety.
The first and most important thing is to contact a fire damage restoration company to advise you on the restoration process, the cleaning and deodorizing process, and future prevention strategies. Don’t think putting out the fire is the end of all your problems. For example, if the fire burnt through your roof and left a hole, you would need to fix it immediately to avoid leaks. Most of the time, a fire damage restoration company will assess the severity of the damage in your house. Sometimes after a fire, you will also need water damage restoration services. The fire may have caused your pipes or water tank to burst.
The next step is to begin cleaning your house. After a fire, your house is probably charred and stained black from the smoke. The fire damage restoration company will clean up any noticeable smoke, dust, and soot on the surface first. If there are any problems with the pipe system, water damage restoration will also take place at this time. Any trace of odours from smoke will also be treated. If you have carpet, they will need to be cleaned professionally to remove any lingering smells. Not everything can be restored, so the restoration company will also let you know if certain items are too damaged and needs to be thrown out.
After removing all the dust, smoke, and odours from your house, you can start actually repairing your home. If your furniture is only slightly burnt or damaged, fire damage restoration can help repair and restore them to their original condition. Carpets that aren’t too damaged can be re-installed, and walls can be repainted to revitalize the place. Don’t worry too much if your furniture or other household items cannot be restored. It’s the perfect opportunity to renovate your home and try a different design.
