Why you need professional fire damage restoration
Most fire damage restoration projects include cleanup and restoration of contents as well as structure. Fire damage can be from fire, smoke, or the water used to extinguish the flames. Fire damage cleanup is a long and tedious process. The sooner you get fire damage cleaned up and repaired, the better for you, your property, and your wallet.
Post-Fire cleanup can cause more damage
Fires cause considerable damage to property - structures and contents. "After the fire" activities can cause more damage, however. It is important to take immediate action but it needs to be the right action so that you do not do more harm than good. Carpets, draperies, upholstered furniture and clothing usually can be salvaged and cleaned after a fire with professional equipment and expertise.
Cleaning Fire, Soot & Smoke: Chemical Reactions
Not all fire damage is the same. The American Red Cross provides tips for getting started but it is important to keep in mind that fire creates two types of smoke damage — the visible soot and the invisible odor. Fire damage cleanup techniques vary based on the components of the fire. Because each fire is different, it is not possible to provide one set of guidelines for fire damage cleanup. Smoke odor from wood could react differently to some cleaning products than smoke odor from plastics. It can be difficult, if not impossible, for property owners — inexperienced in fire damage cleanup and fire damage restoration — to restore fire damaged property and eliminate smoke odors without professional assistance and equipment.
