Experiencing a fire in the home can be a most tragic and traumatic event in someone’s life. Whether the fire was isolated to one room or was widespread throughout the structure, tremendous damage, particularly from smoke, can affect many different areas, some well beyond the fire’s “hot spot”.
The damage from the flames themselves is quite evident. What’s more difficult to accurately address is the damage that smoke and soot caused as a result of the fire. Smoke disperses and finds its way into every inch of the house. It can affect ceilings, attics, fabrics, and so much more. Soot, meanwhile, will coat just about everything in the property. As homeowners see (and smell) the fire damage that just occurred, it’s extremely important for them to take action immediately to get their home cleaned up quickly, safely, and efficiently.
Many homeowners may initially elect to undertake preliminary clean-up tasks themselves, but this is not a safe or effective means of going about addressing this situation. A call to a fire damage restoration company is the first call they should make after the fire, bringing in professionals to assess the situation and diagnose what steps must be taken to restore the home to livable conditions again.
