After a house fire there is usually a lot of damage not only from the fire itself, but the smoke from the fire. Although fire damage cleanup is fairly simple, it is not recommended for homeowners to try it on their own. Calling a professional is the way to go as they have experience of where to start, along with knowing the proper knowledge. Here are some things to consider when going to clean up after a fire.
A major concern after a fire is ash and smoke that is left behind. If the ash and smoke are not treated properly or immediately there could be corrosion, etching, and discoloration. Some discoloration can happen in a few minutes and if not taken care of properly. For some surfaces, the discoloration can become permanent if not taken care of.
Timing with fire and smoke damage is vital as the damage increases the longer you wait. This is due because of the acidic nature of ash and smoke after a fire. If not treated fast enough, an odor may form which is hard to get rid of. This is why it is recommended to call a professional so they can point out the areas that need to be repaired and get to work. Using the best materials on the market to make sure most of your belongings are salvaged.
