Fire Damage RepairMay 01, 2015
Fire damage repair is an extensive and complex process that can involve several variables including emergency boardup, water damage, smoke damage, and even mold damage. There are a lot of things to consider after a fire, and how quickly you respond can directly affect your total loss.
When the fire department responds to your home or business to fight a fire, their goal is to quickly and safely extinguish the flames. It is not unusual for the fire department to break windows or to vent the roof, leaving your home or business exposed to the elements and vulnerable to theft or looting. You’ll also have water damage from fire fighting efforts.
Fire damage repair encompasses all that needs to be addressed after a fire. A fire restoration company can provide emergency board up and roof tarping to secure your home and will get to work evaluating the damage and developing a restoration plan for your property.

Always Practice Safety First
After a fire, there are many potential hazards that you may not be aware of. Fires can damage the structural integrity of your building, and can also damage utility lines connected to your home. Always make sure it is safe to enter to your home or business, and proceed with caution.
The fire department will generally give you clearance to enter your home after it is safe to do so. Do not turn your utilities back on until your utility lines are inspected and determined safe for use.
