It’s best to leave water and fire damage repair to the experts with years of experience. Fire and flood damage is cumulative, affecting more than just the things on your home or business’s floor. Smoke traces are acidic, corroding and staining surfaces forever. During a burn, pressurised smoke residues will pervade any crack and crevice of your home or house, depositing odour-causing residues as well.
Water can cause a lot of harm, whether it is from a natural disaster, a home accident, or even fire departments putting out a fire to save your home. Mould will start growing in as little as 24 hours and cause serious health problems. Mould exposure has been linked to respiratory diseases, asthma, and serious allergic reactions. Try to remain calm after a fire and contact a licenced water and fire damage repair service.
Do not approach the damaged building until fire officers in your area have given you the ok. If you’ve been allowed back into the house, make a list of all you own and open all the curtains. Remove all pets to a clean environment and empty the refrigerator and freezer, particularly if the electricity is turned off.
Start wiping down or washing walls and other surfaces as soon as possible, and avoid using any upholstered furniture if at all possible. Often, avoid using foods or canned goods that have been exposed to high temperatures or smoke. You should also refrain from using the TV or any other electrical device until the electrical system has been tested and washed.
