If you know how to clean up after a fire, you can save lot of money down the road. With this knowledge, you prevent any further damage from happening to your house. The following fire tips are easy to remember & you don’t need a fire damage restoration company or a professional fire service to do them.
The first step is to secure the site. Before you think about fire & smoke removal and before think about tackling the accumulated soot from the fire, you have to secure your home. The goal is to prevent any further damage by weather, theft, or vandalism. If you are the owner, you must cover openings against rain, high winds, and entry. Make sure your doors & ingress ways are locked and/or secured. Because this can be a hassle, your fire department will help secure your house until responsibility can be handed over to the occupier & your insurance company. That being said, we don’t recommend simply relying on them. When it comes to board-up and roof-tarp service, fire damage remediation is our specialty. We highly recommend having us there side-by-side with you throughout this process.
Next, check for fire smoke damage. Your house’s wiring may have sustained water damage and should be checked out by a licensed electrician BEFORE power is turned back on. Also, check for structure damage. Consequently, your roof may have damage & your floors may need be weakened. Discard any food, drink, or even medicines exposed to heat, smoke, or fire sut. Don’t forget to check those refrigerators & freezers. Luckily, your local emergency fire response team will help disconnect your utilities. Lastly, don’t forget to keep your receipts to get reimbursed by your insurance company.
