When Do You Need A Fire Damage Restoration Professional?
Few natural disasters leave your home or property in as bad as shape as fire. If you have ever had to deal with the aftermath of a fire, then you know it is not a pretty sight. A fire can be very overwhelming to the home or business owner. Not only will the property have extensive fire and smoke damage but also flooding due to the firemen putting out the fire.
After you’ve had a fire is when you want to contact a professional fire damage restoration company. A good company will explain the entire process to you before they begin. Fire damage restoration or remediation begins with testing and an assessment of the category type of the water in your home to determine what type of clean-up is needed. The water in your property can range from drinking water to raw sewage, so you can understand cleaning up the different categories of water calls for different clean-up strategies.
Many fire damage restoration companies don’t start with any testing yet instead just assume the water in your property is drinking water. They then restore your home while leaving often contaminated water in your home or property. This irresponsible approach often causes families to get sick months later without them even knowing why they’re getting sick.
