Fire And Water Damage Restoration

 

With fire and water damage, time is home. The more time you lose, the more of your house you will lose. Fire and water damage restoration is a process that must be undertaken immediately to salvage what can be salvaged. And because battling fire requires dousing the flames with water, often you’re forced to address both issues at the same time. Rightfully so, firefighters aren’t concerned with hardwood flooring or upholstered furniture when fighting a house fire. If your home has suffered fire or water damage, here are a few steps to take so you can get your home back into shape as soon as possible.

Anytime your home suffers a fire of any magnitude, you’re in for a big cleanup. The areas directly affected will most likely have to be remodeled and restored to ensure their structural stability. Beyond that, smoke and fire residue present health risks and the smell of a fire can be almost impossible to get rid of. In all cases, clean everything thoroughly to begin with. Use a HEPA vacuum to ensure you capture all small particulates of soot, debris and fire extinguisher residue. After that, be sure to remove all other larger debris from your home. Ventilation is also an important step. Open all windows, and use fans to ventilate the affected rooms to help get rid of the smell. Be sure to clean first, however, as using fans around dust, soot and other fine dusts can cause respiratory distress. Finally, call in a fire and water damage restoration company, PRS of Tampa Bay, to do the real dirty work. They have equipment and procedures at the ready that no average homeowner has access to.

With water damage, the primary concern is drying out your home as soon as possible. Once you’ve had the structural integrity of your home assessed and approved, do whatever you can to get the moisture out. Vacuum out any water with all-purpose vacuums, set up dehumidifiers in affected rooms. and set up as many fans as possible to speed up the drying process. Failure to do so can lead to mold and mildew problems. If your home has incurred substantial water damage, be sure to hire a fire and water damage restoration company, PRS of Tampa Bay, to tackle the job. Just as with fire, the professionals have commercial grade solutions, including freezer, cryogenic, vacuum freeze, and vacuum thermal drying techniques to get things back to normal as soon as possible.
