Imagine receiving a call that your home or office has suffered tremendous fire damage and all your important documents and precious items are destroyed. With fire damage repairs in order, who would you call to restore your property? What would the “cleanup” process look like? How could you trust that your property would be in good hands during the restoration process?
Fire damage can happen at any time. No one likes the inconvenience that a tragedy like this can cause to home or business owners, but there are steps to take to avoid these occurrences from happening as well as steps to take to remediate the situation once it has become a reality.
Maintain all machinery and keep electric appliances up to date. Store potentially hazardous material in safe areas of the building. Conduct routine checks to ensure the property (both inside and out) is safe from potential fire hazards.
Make sure that there is a fire safety procedure implemented in case an accident does occur. Escape routes and an emergency response plan should be reviewed, updated, and practiced on a regular basis.
After a fire has occurred, a professional restoration company will come out and inspect the level of damage. Once the site is inspected, a plan of remediation will be developed and the process for fire damage repairs will begin. Every situation is different, so the “cleanup” process will reflect the level of repair that is necessary to bring the property back to pre-existing conditions.
If your property has been affected by fire and water damage, the safe thing to do is to avoid any “danger zones” of the building. Typically, the contractor will have the area(s) blocked off from access. It is important to avoid these zones to ensure your safety as well as avoid the possiblilty of cross-contamination of mold spores. After 24 to 48 hours, the wet material could become a breeding ground for toxic mold growth, so it is important to get a professional on the scene to dry and restore the building as quick as possible.
