Precious little is more devastating than having your home and belongings damaged by a house fire. There is little time to grieve after evacuating your home. The most important thing is to get your family to a safe location, as even minimal smoke damage can be harmful. After contacting your insurer, you should call a fire restoration company, like Dean Mitchell Group. Our emergency response team will help restore your property to its pre-loss condition. Don’t attempt to restore your home on your own. The fire may be gone, but the danger still exists. If you attempt cleaning up after a fire, you could further damage your property, but more importantly, you could put yourself and your family at risk.
Harmful Ash And Smoke
After a fire, ash and smoke stay behind, and if it isn’t thoroughly removed, it can cause structural damage to your property. Damages include:
- Foul odors
These damages can result in costly repairs. In addition to this, ash and smoke are safety hazards. Many victims of fires die from smoke inhalation, as the chemicals found in smoke are harmful, but don’t show symptoms until 24 to 48 hours after the incident. You can ensure that your home is safe to live in by hiring a professional fire restoration company. When it comes to the hidden dangers of house fires, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Chemicals Left Behind
Fire can also leave behind chemicals long after it’s extinguished. This can cause severe breathing problems and respiratory issues if not effectively removed from the home. Soot and smoke can linger and spread throughout the house, which can increase your risk of developing serious diseases. If you’re thinking about restoring your home on your own, it’s important to ask yourself the following questions: Do you have the equipment to remove chemicals left by fire? Do you know how to remove these hidden dangers, even if you owned the equipment? Do you know what telltale signs to look for to ensure the danger is eliminated?
