You might be thinking that after the fire is extinguished and fire trucks are gone your problems are finished, but sadly right after that, the real trouble begins. The building that was affected by the fire can suffer everything from small damage to the walls and furniture to complete destruction. In both ways, fire restoration should be handled by a team of professionals and we at the Buena Park Flood Rescue are proud to say that we`ve been leaders in fire restoration services for a number of years.
What you can do yourself
A lot of people try to tackle this problem by themselves, but this is not a smart thing to do because fire damaged houses can be full of toxic gas and other hazards. Fortunately, our workers are well trained for these situations and carry all necessary equipment and tools for any type of problem they might encounter during the restoration. Besides fire damage, the building often suffers more damage from extinguishing process and from the smoke. Smoke is an especially dangerous byproduct of fire. It can permanently corrode and stain walls and other surfaces on top of being highly toxic and dangerous for the environment.
But this is nothing our team of professionals can’t handle. Even though we already said that you should leave everything for the experts to take care of, there are a couple of minor preparations you can do to speed up the process.
First of all, evacuate your family and pets from the area and congregate in a safe place. Smoke is dangerous for your health and it can leave some horrible side-effect on your body. Next, give us a call and explain the situation. A live company employee, not an answering service, will answer your call 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week, including holidays. We will obtain necessary details from you as to what we can expect once our team arrives at the location and prepare for it. The next thing to do, if possible, is to open the windows and doors in the smoke-filled rooms. Now be careful, don’t go in if the smoke is too dense, leave it to us. Also, you should take photos of all your damaged property for the insurance company so you can provide necessary evidence.
And that is all we need from you, leave the rest to us. Our workers are very passionate about their job and they will make sure everything is taken care of. They come equipped with special tools for removing smoke and soot from the ceilings, walls, and other affected surfaces. We will try our best to restore your belonging to the pre-fire condition, but some that are affected the most are better to get rid of. Our workers are also capable of removing odor from your house or workplace. We use special industrial air scrubbers and fogging equipment to give you the best possible service.
The last step is to restore your rooms to pre-fire condition. This can include anything from small repairs to drywall, windows or doors to the restoration of the whole rooms, wiring, plumbing, etc. But don’t stress out, we at the Buena Park Flood Rescue are perfectly capable of handling everything mentioned above. We will help you restore your house to the previous condition and for a reasonable price too. If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact us day or night. It’s our job to be ready and available for when an emergency strikes.
