If you’ve experienced a fire in your home, the aftermath can be overwhelming. Seeing their home damaged by the fire is a very emotional experience for many people. But you can restore your home to the way it was before. In some cases, you may be able to restore your possessions as well. Fire damage restoration focuses primarily on three areas: security, fixing smoke and fire damage, and fixing water damage. Once those things are fixed, you can focus on rebuilding your life.
Depending on the severity of the fire, your home may not be inhabitable for a few days to several weeks. During that time, it’s important to make the building secure so that people don’t steal your possessions and no one gets hurt going into the property. Boston Board Up provides board-up services to ensure the house is secure during the period of time that it’s uninhabitable.
Restoring Damage From Fire And Smoke
If you’ve had a fire in your home, some sections, like the floors and stairs, may need to be rebuilt or reinforced. Boston Board Up will work on fixing up instability in the structure caused by the fire. Our team will also use specialized cleaners and equipment to scrub down every surface in the home and remove any lingering traces of smoke. When your home is restored, there will be no smoke smell.
Repairing Water Damage And Preventing Mold
The most significant risk to the health and safety of homeowners after a fire usually isn’t fire damage or smoke; it’s water damage and mold. The water used to put the fire out can soak everything in the house, especially soft furnishings, carpets, curtains, bedding, and clothing. When that water sits in the home, it can start to breed mold spores. But an experienced fire damage restoration team will attack that standing water and destroy a mold that has begun inside the house. Your home will be clean, sanitary, and mold-free when the crew is finished so that you can safely move back into your home.
