There’s nothing scarier to a home or business owner than the idea of a fire. If your investment property goes up in smoke, it’s important you keep a cool head and then take immediate action. A fire damage restoration professional will walk you through the process if your Pennsylvania home is hit by fire damage or smoke damage. Here’s some advice on the fire damage restoration process from the repair and restoration professionals here at Scavello Restoration.
Fire Damage Restoration and Smoke Damage: What You Can Do
If you don’t want your home to look and smell like an ashtray, it’s vital to clean up as much of the affected area as you safely can post-fire. If not, soot residue, smoke smell, and permanent smoke damage will be left behind. If you, the property owner, are the one doing the cleaning, make sure to focus on safety. Open doors and windows to ensure proper ventilation. Wear a dust mask so you won’t breathe in any harmful soot or dust. Clean from the top down—from the ceiling to the floor. Vacuum all floors, carpets, and upholstery. Launder all towels, clothes, and bedding. If there is soot or smoke residue outside the house, buy or rent a pressure washer to take care of these dark marks.
As you can tell, the process of fire clean up and fire restoration is very involved, and best left to the professionals. Fire damage poses a certain threat, and many structures may be unsafe. Find a reliable fire restoration expert to help you bring your home back to life.
Clean Up ASAP in Fire Damage Restoration
If you neglect to clean the affected area right away, your property will be damaged permanently. Within mere minutes of fire damage and smoke damage, your home’s appliances, carpets, and upholstery will discolor to a yellow-ish hue.
Within just days, your property’s walls will be discolored permanently and items may rust due to an acidic residue left in the wake of the fire. It’s best to clean up your home or business immediately after incurring fire damage or smoke damage so you can mitigate the damages and prevent increased costs of restoration and repair.
