After The Flames Die: The Facts of Professional Fire Restoration And Clean Up
The Facts of Professional Fire Restoration And Clean Up
This is one word that will stop anyone in their tracks. Whether it is a forest fire raging out of control in the western part of the U.S., some chemical spill alight on a highway, or a suburban New Jersey house ablaze, fire is all-too perfectly efficient in destroying property and taking lives.
It is the one absolute disaster that your home life insurance policy will pay off, no questions asked, and an element we need to sustain our lives as much as we need rightly fear. It’s something that can decimate and determine our lives to the point where we may never recover. And as terrible as the fire itself can be, the destruction, damage, and debris left after it is extinguished can be just as devastating as flickering flames.
The Fireman Is A Hero, But…
Soot & Smoke
This all must be cleaned professionally.
The Dangers of DYI
As noted, there is the necessary damage a fire crew will leave in their wake at a commercial space or residency. This, on top of what the fire can manage when scorching its path through a structure, often leaves homes and shops quite tricky to navigate, let alone clean. Fire and insurance inspectors can walk down a hallway or venture down into a basement and declare a space safe to reinhabit and begin cleaning. But DIY fire clean-up is not the best option for most people, even in the aftermath of a small blaze. Often what the homeowner or shop boss spends in cleaning materials and time, plus renting pro-grade cleaning machines, will cost more than it ever would hiring a pro fire clean-up crew.
