Of course, after a fire in the house or at business premises, the priority is to normalize and to return the area back to its pre-incident condition as soon as we can. Therefore, calling a fire damage restoration company is essential.
Here are four ways that can help if your property has been damaged by a fire
- Smoke removal
One of the most complicated parts after fire damage is smoke and odour removal. This happens because fire is invisible and takes specialist knowledge to remove it quickly and efficiently. As soon as you call in a fire restoration services company the better, as time is very important. Another fact is that heat and pressure from a fire cause smoke to rise up through floorboards and seep into cracks in the walls which means, if not cleaned up by a specialist fire restoration services company, smoke residue and contaminants can linger for years.
Remember that a side-effect of fire damage that’s is water damage. Water that comes from fire hoses that put out house fires can not only damage belongings, carpets, and upholstery but can also have serious consequences for the structure of a property. Choosing a professional fire restoration services company will be on call 24 hours a day and have the professional equipment to extract standing water left behind by the fire service. Once the water is removed, the building and any contents that are salvageable can be dried out, sanitized, and deodorized.
- Getting rid of household items
Are some cases, unfortunately, some furniture and personal belongings are unsalvageable as a result of smoke and soot damage.
These need to be bagged up and thrown away. However, we as a fire restoration services company will be able to assess what can be saved, and what can’t. Some belongings can be cleaned on-site using specialist equipment, and clothes and other porous items can be dry cleaned. So IBX Team will take care of everything.
