Water and Fire Damage Restoration Calls for Professional Service
When your house or property suffers a fire outbreak, you can expect that the residue from fires and flames are not the only ones that you have to worry about since there are other secondary damages that will develop as a result of this.
For instance, using water to kill the fire will surely leave the area soaking wet. Thus, wooden floors, walls and ceilings are sure to develop rot when they are not dried out completely and efficiently. Furthermore, this makes them prone to developing mold and mildew, which are known health hazards that can put you and your family’s health at risk.
If in case you used a fire extinguisher, then there’s still residue which needs to be cleaned up. Although some say that these can be easily cleaned by vacuuming and wiping them off with a wet rag, improper removal and cleaning can be harmful to your health. If you used a dry chemical fire extinguisher for instance, you’ll be cleaning powdery residues which can cause health issues when inhaled as well as irritate the eyes.
In addition, smoke and water are known to affect other areas of the homes aside from the ones directly affected by the fire. They can seep into cracks in the walls, floors and ceilings which creates a strong odorous smell. This is one of those things that you can’t clean by yourself.
These are just some of the reasons why for water and fire damage, you need to call the services of a professional water and fire damage restoration company.
These companies are experts when it comes to cleaning up the mess that the fire made, as well as those which are left behind by water or chemicals used to put out the fire. They are knowledgeable and skilled in this area, and have the right tools and equipments to get the job done. They use humidifiers to clean the air, sealant paint to cover the burned areas (provided they need no further repairs) and manually scrape off mold and mildew before repainting to ensure they don’t grow back.
Save yourself from a lot of time-consuming work and exposure to different health risks. Call a professional water and fire damage restoration company and let them deal with the problem the right and safe way.
