Did you know if you have paper money or coins that have been damaged in a fire, you can send them to the Department of the Treasury Bureau of Engraving and Printing and have them replaced? If you have had a fire in your home you know how extensive the damages can be. We are a local, family owned and operated, water damage restoration and mold removal company that is fully trained and qualified to clean and restore your home after a fire.
During a fire, smoke seeps into every crack and crevice of your home. Furnishings, drapes, and bedding need to be completely dried and professionally cleaned. Soot permeates everything in your home. You will need deodorizers, and special chemicals to remove smoke smells. After the fire department puts out the fire, your home will be saturated with water and chemicals. With all that water in the home the potential for mold and mildew is high. The first priority will be to dry everything out while the damage is being assessed.
Secure the Home
Many times the fire department will cut holes in walls to make sure there are no smoldering embers hiding inside. If the roof is open it could rain and cause more water damage. Windows are broken and walls are open to the outside air. Your home needs to be professionally secured in those open areas during the surveying and repair portion of the job.
Your electricity and appliances should be inspected before use. Smoke damage often causes short circuiting and they may have been damaged by water. Unplug appliances and don’t turn them on until they are completely dry and fully inspected.
Avoid extra stress after a house fire by calling your local water damage restoration company immediately. They are experienced and prepared to help guide you through the entire process moving forward.
