How To Restore Your Home After a Fire

A house fire is a devastating event from which to recover. Cleanup requires the expertise of a professional to help you get the job done right. Trained experts safely assess the fire damage, remove all destroyed materials and restore your home to its original condition.

1. Assess the Situation

In order to create a thorough plan of action, the experts must inspect your home to determine the extent of the destruction. They not only look for devastation from the fire and smoke but also inspect for water damage. The fire hose used by each firefighter emits a powerful spray of water that can thoroughly permeate the structures of your house.

2. Remove Damaged Materials

Trained professionals must remove furniture, carpeting and drywall that has blackened or begun to melt. They have the knowledge and safety techniques to remove materials that suffered fire damage, and they have the resources to dispose of them properly.

3. Eliminate Smoke and Moisture From All Interior Components and Air Industrial vacuums, air movers and dehumidifiers dry out water-damaged materials. Specialized equipment removes the smoke and dirt from salvageable structures and surfaces. Air scrubbers and specialized foggers eliminate smoke and odors from the air.

4. Restore Your Home

Returning your dwelling to its pre-fire condition is the critical final step. The restoration depends on the extent of the damage. For example, if only a couple of pieces of furniture and the carpeting were destroyed, these items need only be replaced. If reconstruction of entire rooms is required, however, major repairs may be necessary. The goal of restoration is to bring your home back to the way it was before the fire.

You should never try to move a fire from one location to another. For example, if the fire is contained in a pan and covered by a lid, you may be tempted to move it outside to your porch. Many accidents can happen on the way, though, so it’s best to just leave the grease fire where it started and deal with it there. Large Fires It will become clear pretty quickly that the fire is too large for you to handle by yourself. If you try the previously mentioned techniques and the flame still burns, it’s a job for the professionals. Get everyone out of the house immediately, and call 911. Don’t go back inside until the fire chief tells you it’s safe to do so. Call fire cleanup professionals to mitigate any damage and rebuild the marred structure. The faster you call, the less damage they are likely to have to repair. When a grease fire breaks out in your home, you may have what you need to put it out. If you aren’t able to extinguish the flame quickly, though, call experts who can help you minimize its effects and repair the damage that occurs.

Quick Tips for Saving Water-Soaked Electronics

My Electronics Have Water Damage, Now What?

Just about everyone has experienced the pain of electronic damage after an unfortunate drop or puddle. Because water and electronics do not mix, after your business experiences flooding, you might be thinking there is nothing you can do but be out thousands of dollars to replace your electronics. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can help save your equipment.
The first step is to turn off the power. This helps to reduce the risk of wiring issues and electrical fires after a water loss. This also reduces the risk of harm to those still on the property after a loss.
Before touching flooded electronics, there are a few things you want to do:

 

Turn off the building’s main power Unplug the device if it is safe to do so Remove the battery Verify that there is no power to the device

This can prevent a nasty shock. If the device was not on and it does not have an internal battery, there might not be any damage once it dries out. Do not power it on until you are certain it is completely dry.

The second step is to disassemble the device. Only follow this step if you are experienced with the make of the electronic.
If you know what you are doing, you can disassemble the device to let out the rest of the water and speed drying. Check the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that taking it apart does not void your policy.
Use a Light Acid or Base To Clean the Components
To clean flooded electronics, take a weak acid or base such as water mixed with laundry detergent and wipe off the components. This can remove any residue left behind as it dries. Be sure to use a soft nonstatic cloth or cotton swab dipped in the solution to prevent corrosion. You have to be very careful when doing this. It is very easy to damage the tiny components.
