A fire is one of the most trying and traumatic things that any of us will experience in life. When you are finally over the fact that a fire happened and you have to handle the prospect of a fire damage restoration company coming to help, you want to have someone who knows what they are doing once that fire is out and the smoke clears. At On-Deck Restoration LLC, we have a few things that can help when you have fire damage in your home. Consider the following:
- Fire damage doesn’t always mean smoke and soot. When you have fire damage, many people will wrongfully assume that you are stuck cleaning up a lot of ash and soot as part of the restoration. While there are those things often present in fire damage, the real dangers can lie in the standing water that was used to put the fire out. In fact, many fire damage cleanup and restoration processes are necessary because of damage from water, not the fire.
- Fire damage cleanup is dangerous. Depending on where the fire occurred, you might have certain areas of the structure that are weaker and more dangerous before. Even if the area looks fine, be sure to have a firefighter clear it before walking or entering into an area.
- Your first call after emergency help should be to a restoration service like ours. While you might think your first call needs to be to your insurance company, it should actually be to a team like ours at On-Deck Restoration LLC. We can help work with your insurance company to get you the restoration services you need.
