Fire Damage Restoration
When you’re dealing with fire damage, the best thing you can do is to call for some professional help. You’ll also want to respond to the damage as quickly as possible because as a general rule, the faster you respond to the damage and start to repair it, the easier it’ll be to fix it. In other words, the longer you leave it, the more the problem will be exacerbated.
Another thing to consider is your personal safety. After all, fires can lead to weakened structure and electrical damage, and this becomes even more of a problem if you throw water into the mix. Because of that, the first thing that you should think about is whether it’s safe for you to stay in the house. And remember that it’s better to be safe than sorry.
If the structure is safe then you can start to think about cleaning up any initial damage. Be careful lifting and moving wet carpets and fabrics though, as they can be deceptively heavy and potentially lead to injuries if not handled with care. Once the fire has been dealt with, it’s likely to be this water damage that poses the greatest long-term threat, so try to dry it up with towels where possible. Never use a domestic vacuum cleaner to try to suck up water from your property.
Dealing With Fire Damage Effectively
With any water cleaned up, the next thing to think about is the smoke and soot damage. Try to limit movement around the property as much as possible and avoid washing walls and painted surfaces until you’ve consulted professional help. If you try to tackle the damage yourself and you’re not careful, you could end up doing more harm than good.
