Few experiences are as devastating as fire damage to your home or business. Priceless, sentimental belongings are often damaged beyond repair, and the physical and emotional trauma can cause lasting effects.
Once the fire officials have left the scene, you are left alone wondering, “Now what?” Fortunately, there are professionals that can take over and help return your home and life back to normal as quickly and professionally as possible. Be sure to check any contractor’s licenses and insurance, and ask which industry certifications and training they have.
Below are several steps you can take immediately to protect your home and reduce the damaging effects of smoke and soot:
Board up any doors or windows that have been damaged or destroyed to discourage vandalism as well as prevent additional damage from rain or wind.
Disturb as little of the damaged area as possible to prevent contamination to unaffected areas.
Open doors and windows if possible. Ventilation will reduce the penetration of smoke odor.
