How to reduce the pain of water and fire restoration.
Fire damage does anything but bring joy, and water and fire restoration isn’t any different. When you’re the victim of a fire, you go on a roller coaster of emotions during and after the fire. And dealing with the cleanup can bring out the worst in anyone. But it doesn’t have to. There are some ways to get through it without losing your sanity.
Take Immediate Action
Nothing makes a restoration project worse than waiting to get it started. The longer water and smoke residue sit untreated, the more damage they can do. Getting the water out is the first step to making this a successful process.
Don’t Do It Yourself
Although it’s tempting to try to manage the cleanup and restoration process yourself. nothing makes it more miserable than tackling something that is outside of your circle of expertise. Instead of getting frustrated and feeling overwhelmed, call in a professional.
Understand the Process
Being in the dark about what’s happening in your own home will not make you happy. Instead of feeling agitation and uncertainty, get to know the basics of the restoration process so you can feel at ease with what’s going on around you. Here’s a quick list of some of the steps a restoration company will take:
- 24-hour emergency response from a reliable restoration company
- Water extraction and drying of the interior of the structure
- Soot and smoke residue cleaning
- Ozone treatment to help with the smoke odor
- Stabilization of the building
- Packing and storage of belongings that can be salvaged
- Demolition, if necessary
- Restoration of furniture, documents and electronics
