If you have ever experienced fire damage to your property, it probably felt overwhelming when trying to navigate what needed to be done next. Many people experience fire damage and don’t know the first place to begin or how. It can be helpful to understand the fire damage restoration process and what to expect along the way. It is also nice knowing how quickly you can be back in business or living again in your home. After a fire has damaged your property, it can be formidable and costly to repair, but thankfully, you don’t have to do it alone.
With our team at TCM, we will help guide you through the entire restoration process. Here are some beneficial tips if you’re currently in the process of restoring your property.
The first step in the fire damage restoration process is evaluating the property damage. A fire damage inspection or assessment should always be conducted to identify where the fire damage is coming from, the fire contamination category, and the fire damage class. Once this evaluation has been completed, it will help you determine to what extent the damage has been done. It will also provide you with valuable feedback to know what the next step is to restore the property back to its original pre-fire damaged state. After the evaluation has been completed, it is highly recommended that any and all damaged or charred materials should be removed. The fire damage restoration process can be extremely time-consuming and emotionally overwhelming but you can be confident that when done quickly, efficiently, and correctly, you and your property can be up and running as soon as possible.
Once all the charred material including the damaged drywall, ceiling tiles, etc. has been removed, it is recommended to salvage whatever can be preserved. Afterward, moving forward with a thorough clean-up can be extremely beneficial to prevent any health issues from arising. Once a thorough cleaning has been conducted, you can then begin the process of repairing and replacing any damaged items.
While we know it can be tempting to do all of this yourself, we have found that the emotional toll that is exacted when going through your things and trying to salvage whatever you can, proves to be incredibly overwhelming. In addition to the emotional exhaustion, we know there may be safety hazards present.
