If you experience a fire in your home, like most homeowners, you may think that the danger is over once the fire is put out. However, there are many hidden dangers that appear once the original disaster has passed. This is why your insurance company will talk with you about Fire and Water Damage Restoration companies.
One matter that needs professional attention is smoke and soot as a result of the fire. Smoke, soot, and ashes start to affect your property almost immediately. They cause discoloration and corrosion, and leave behind strong odors. Until the problem is neutralized, your property will experience further damage due to the acidic nature of these things. Your best chance at salvaging your home and belongings is to call a professional. Immediate attention to the matter is best so that the cost of replacing items is reduced. With prompt action, you can avoid having to replace everything in your home. Here is what happens if you wait a few days to restore your home:
- Belongings that were near the fire start to discolor immediately
- The finish on your appliances will yellow and some will begin to tarnish.
- Clothing, drywall, and upholstery will be permanently discolored within days.
- Metals will begin corroding.
- Toxins in the air from the fire will cause respiratory issues.
