Dealing with Fire Damage Yourself
If your home has encountered a fire, you must be very careful with how you deal with all fire damage. Unless you know the proper procedures and have the right knowledge on fire damage restoration, do not try to do the work yourself. Getting assistance from a professional restoration company is the best way to avoid doing something that may cause even more damage. If you have to deal with the damage yourself, here are some tips we have for you:
- Do not try to clean damaged items unless you have the right equipment and methods to do so. Fire cleanup requires special equipment and knowledge, attempting to clean the damage yourself could make the situation even worse, making cleaning more difficult.
- Dry water-damaged items as soon as you can to prevent mold growth. There may be some items that can only be dried using professional equipment, so just dry what you can and leave the rest to the professionals.
- At the end of the day, the best way to restore all items and materials on your property is by getting assistance from a professional service. You may have to spend some money now, but it will save you a good amount of money in the future.
