Fires are devastating all around; this is only one reason as to why the professionals should come help with the cleanup! After the firefighters leave, this potentially dangerous process begins, and there are a few things you should be aware of when dealing with a crisis like this. Of course the fire was the main danger, but what’s left behind can be detrimental to the safety of your home, and those who live in it. Visit our office at 9901 Burnet Rd. Austin, Tx 78758 for tips on repairing your home or business.
Here’s what you should do right after the firefighters leave:
Call the Professionals Immediately
This is no DIY task; the professionals need to be called out to your home immediately after a fire. They’ll know what to do, and they’ll have the correct tools and equipment for the job. DON’T hesitate- call a cleaning and restoration company ASAP (like The Steam Team).
Call the Insurance Company
The insurance company needs to come out and evaluate the area, make estimates, and speak with you.
Follow Safety Guidelines
Be safe out there! Wear a dust respirator (safety mask) to protect yourself against dust, smoke, and other dangerous substances in the air. Smoke will immediately begin to settle onto furniture and surfaces, so you’ll want to be safe and protected while surveying the area.
Ventilate the Area
Box fans are great for this. Open windows and set box fans facing outward, so that they blow smoke and contaminated air out the windows!
