Restoring Fire Damage: Giving Yourself Peace of Mind
It can be very traumatizing to watch the flames blaze while your house is on fire. You often have a sense that your whole life is being destroyed right before your eyes. While it is true that you can replace most of your material possessions, rebuilding your life can be emotionally exhausting. No one should ever have to go through such a horrible experience, but you are faced with a disaster such as this in your own home one day, know that you can turn to a fire damage restoration company for the help you will need to get back on your feet.
If there is nothing left of your house, then there is very little you can do. Contact your insurance company for help getting your claims filed. Local emergency services, like the Red Cross, can also provide some assistance to you if you find you are without a home. If your house and furnishings are not completely destroyed but have sustained some damage, you can contact experts in renovation and restoration for aid.
Do you undertake the task on your own, or do you hire a professional?
If it is a small fire, then clean up should be pretty simple. For instance, a small kitchen fire will probably not cause too much damage so will the task should not require a professional's assistance to clean and repair the damaged area.
A common accident such as a grease fire is something that most people can put out before the fire spreads and does a large amount of damage. To get control of a grease fire, all you need to do (provided it is a small fire) is smother it with a pot lid or baking soda. Just clean the soot and char marks after the fire is put out, and everything will be as good as new in a about an hour.
Please note that you should never attempt to put out a grease fire with water. If you toss water on a grease fire you will only exacerbate the situation.
You should also never try to be the hero. If you cannot get the fire under control, you should immediately evacuate the area. Once you have evacuated the building, call the fire department for assistance. The steps you take after the fire is put out will largely be determined by the amount of damage the fire caused.
What do you do if everything is completely ruined? For example, the walls are black with soot, everything has been damaged by smoke, and water has saturated everything in sight. You probably should not try to undertake cleaning and restoration all on your own in this case.
It could be dangerous to clean up after there has been a large fire. The fire could have caused structural damage that you cannot see. You or a loved one could get hurt in the process. This is not a chance that you should be willing to take.
