Why Fire Restoration Services Are Important Immediately Following a Fire

fire restorationRegardless of the size and amount of visible damage, a fire is an emotionally draining experience. We know how tempting it may be to take it easy in the days following a fire to give yourself a chance to breathe, but the harm to your home doesn't end when the flames go out. Within hours, some of the initial effects of the fire will become permanent, and new problems will appear. The longer you wait to call in fire restoration services, the worse the situation will become. Here are 4 types of damage that require fast action.

Stress

The heat of a fire can put a great deal of stress on different parts of your home, which may result in weakening or warping. This is especially true of metal in your home.

Residue

Fire and smoke leave an acidic residue that produces harmful chemical reactions. These reactions persist until the residue is properly removed and can create many long-lasting problems. This residue, for example, can cause paint finishes to flake off and lead to rust and corrosion.

Stains

Along the lines of the residue left behind after a fire, discoloration will appear on walls, bathroom tiles, and other parts of your home. Within days, many of these stains will become permanent; they should not be allowed to sit long enough for this to happen.

Odors

The smell of smoke after a fire is usually much more resistant than other types of odors that you may have dealt with in your home. Restoration services will carefully clean and fight odors in furniture and other items with a variety of techniques, including deodorizing fog. We've seen that immediate fire restoration not only reduces the amount of damage permanently done to a home, but also reduces the anxiety and cost of repairs. With some swift action and clean-up by you and your restoration service company, you can see your home resemble or even fully return to the way it was before the fire. Home Fire Escape Plan
