If your Asheville home has experienced damage from a fire, you may not know what steps to take next. It can be difficult to know what to do after you’ve been through such a trauma. Once you’ve taken care of your family’s safety, you’ll probably want to get your home back to normal as soon as possible. We understand. Returning your home to its pre-fire state begins with an estimate. Here are some of the things you need to know to get an accurate estimate after Asheville fire damage.
Asheville Fire Damage
After a fire, a professional service will determine cleanup costs based on several factors. The type of fire matters in the cleanup process. If the fire started because of an electrical issue, for instance, your restoration service will want to know. It will also help if you know what the fire has consumed, such as paper or grease, because the cleanup process will be different based on these materials. A restoration service can also assess smoke damage, chemical damage, and other damage from the fire. The amount of time between the fire and the cleanup matters, so contact a professional as soon as possible.
Don’t Ignore Water Damage
When most of us think of fire damage, we don’t usually picture water damage too. Yet the water that put out the fire may have also caused some damage to your home. Water won’t cause as much damage as fire, but it can still cause mold if it’s left in your house long enough. When you talk to your restoration professional about your estimate, make sure you take time to discuss water damage.
Professional vs. DIY
After a fire, you may want to dive immediately into the cleanup process. That’s understandable. However, it’s important to hire a professional to help. A specialist from a restoration service will know exactly how to access the damage, salvage as much as possible, and remove lingering smoke and air pollution. For your family’s health and safety, and for your own peace of mind, let a cleaning company help you restore your home.
