Fire damage can make your home uninhabitable and cause you a lot of stress. The last thing you need is to address the damage yourself. You should contact a professional restoration team, like ServiceMaster by Melin, to get the job done right and restore your property back to its original condition. Before you hire restoration services, you probably have some questions about the process. Here are some of the most common questions our clients ask and our answers to help introduce you to the process:
Can Fire Damage Be Repaired?
Fire damage can be repaired, but it depends on the level of damage your property has experienced. Once you contact us, our experts will reach your destination quickly and begin inspecting your property. They will understand the restoration procedures your space needs before starting the process. They will safely move the furniture items to a safe place and then remove ash and soot from the space. They also restore structural elements and other belongings damaged by flame, heat, or smoke. Our team will guide you throughout the process to keep you updated.
What Can I Do During Restoration Services?
You should stay away from the fire-damaged area and prevent your family from entering as well. It’s important to start the restoration quickly to prevent your belongings from suffering further damage due to the soot and smoke.
How Long does it Take to Restore Fire Damage?
Fire damage restoration can take days or weeks, depending on the severity of the damage your property faced. Certain spaces, like commercial facilities, can be more challenging to handle leading to an increase in the timeline. Expect the restoration process to take weeks if the entire property experienced some degree of fire damage. Our experts will provide an estimated timeline for restoration after inspecting your space, then you can decide where you’ll be living while your property is restored.
Do I Need to Move Out?
If the fire has brutally impacted your house, you might have to leave the house for restoration. But if only one room or a small space has experienced a fire, you may be able to stay home. It’s better to discuss it with our team. Note that if we advise you to leave the property, it’s because the smoke fumes and soot can lead to health problems.
When you are leaving your property, make sure to take these items with you:
- Cash, checkbooks, and credit cards
- Personal documents
- Valuables and collections
