When your home is damaged by fire, it can be a traumatizing experience. The first thing you should do is call a professional fire damage restoration company to help you through the process. Here are some dos and don’ts to keep in mind during fire damage restoration:
DO call a professional fire damage restoration company as soon as possible. Even if an item can be cleaned, repairs might be necessary. A quality company will have the knowledge, tools, and equipment to make the necessary repairs. This will help prevent fire damage from getting worse and causing extra damage to the property.
DON’T try to clean up the fire damage yourself. Toxic smoke and soot from fires can cause serious health problems without professional restoration. It’s almost impossible to remove all the smoke and soot from your home and furnishings. Besides, smoke and soot are carcinogenic. This is a job for the pros, so don’t even think about improvising. It will all be for naught anyway. Call a professional
DO be prepared to answer questions about your insurance policy. You may be asked to describe the coverage you have you should educate yourself on any exclusions. Your insurance agent will be able to answer any coverage questions.
