After a fire happens most people are happy to know that they escaped without any harm to themselves or their pets. Yet, once this feeling of elation passes, the reality of the fire damage settles in. Even if the home is still capable of being lived in the remaining smoke and soot can cause serious damage if they are not addressed quickly.
Homeowners are often tempted to clean up their homes on their own. But this is not a good idea. The experts at Restoration Pros understand how to evaluate every item in the home and every inch of the home for the extent of the damage. Once an inspection has been done, they have all the right equipment and techniques to thoroughly remove ash and smoke damage as well as remove any odor from the fire.
It is important to contact us as soon as possible. If ash is left to sit it will discolor most any surface. Plastics will discolor during the first few minutes of the fire and are among the first objects that need to be replaced.
Metals can tarnish and wood will require a refinishing. Metals usually corrode in fires. This is why you need a professional to evaluate everything and determine what can be cleaned and restored and what must be replaced.
Water damage is another thing most homeowners do not think about following a fire. The hoses that were used to put out the fires most certainly leave behind water and moisture which must also be dealt with by a professional.
