What to do if you have a fire and water damage emergency at your home?
Should a devastating fire happen in your home, you will want to rely on a professional restoration company to quickly salvage as much of your property as possible. The longer you wait to begin fire damage restoration and water cleanup after a fire, the greater the harm that can continue to occur to your home and its contents.
Quick response time and action are critical in the aftermath of a fire. Soot, smoke and ash residue will contaminate the indoor air quality of your home and corrode surfaces, causing further deterioration of your property. As well, if not taken care of immediately, excess water from fire-fighting will continue to damage the floors, walls and furnishings in your home, and can quickly lead to the growth of hazardous mould.
