For greater peace of mind, it’s important to know what things to do in response to fire damage if it does occur. Something equally important, however, is knowing what NOT to do when it comes to fire damage repair. For any fire damage repair needs, don’t hesitate to call the pros at 24 Restore in the St. Paul, Minnesota area. Below are five things NOT to do regarding fire damage repair.

Hastily Throw Away Fire Or Smoke Damaged Items

After a fire, some items may appear to you to be burnt or damaged by smoke beyond the point of repair. Though some of these items may actually be damaged beyond repair, there are many that potentially aren’t. The restoration techniques employed by certified and insured professionals are sophisticated and many valuable items that you thought could not be salvaged may actually be salvageable. Essentially, wait to throw away any of your possessions until they have been inspected by professionals who can determine whether or not they can be restored.

Hesitating To Call The Insurance Company

You should not waste a second after your home goes through fire and smoke damage before calling a certified fire damage restoration company and your insurance company. Waiting any longer than you need to will just end up making the process even more difficult and more of a headache than it would be normally.

Breathing in Soot-Contaminated Air

This is the most critical thing to avoid doing after a fire. Soot can be extremely hazardous to your health to breathe in. Soot contains microscopic particles that when breathed in can lead the developing serious health conditions such as coronary heart disease, asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory illnesses. If you must go back to your home after a fire, at least wear a surgical mask to prevent you from inhaling most of the soot particles there.

Not Calling A Certified Cleaning And Restoration Company

To restore the fire damage done to your home and to have it done right there is really only one way to go. 24 Restore in St. Paul, Minnesota has qualified, capable, and efficient restoration technicians that will help you get your home back to normal in no time. They will be able to do the job in a safe manner that will keep you out of harm’s way from soot inhalation or any dangers posed by structural weakening that the fire may have done to your home. Now that you know what not to do, we hope that you will be able to avoid these common mistakes in fire damage repair. Cleaning up the aftermath of a fire is a serious endeavor. If not done correctly, you could cause unnecessary danger to yourself and to others. Furthermore, the damage to your home could become more widespread and permanent. Just remember, the best
step to take after a fire is to contact the professionals at 24 Restore in the St. Paul area for our fire repair services.
