Why Calling SERVPRO of Metrocrest Should Be Your First Post-Fire Priority
After you’ve just finished watching emergency service take care of a fire in your home, the shock can sometimes make it difficult to figure out which step you should take next. However, if you want your home to stand the best chance at a full recovery, you’re going to need to make a few calls.
First, call your insurance company. Next, you’ll want to call SERVPRO of Metrocrest, your local fire damage cleanup crew. Doing this early on is imperative because
- Quicker action yields better results
- Mitigation of water damage is easier
- You’ll be able to salvage more of your belongings
When a fire happens, it doesn’t just affect the things it burns. It releases soot and smoke that seeps into materials surrounding the fire as well. Over time, these byproducts set in, discoloring and damaging porous materials. The longer these surfaces go without being properly cleaned, the more likely it is that the damage will be irreversible, which is why calling a fire damage crew right away is so important.
Many people don’t consider water damage to be an issue when there’s a fire, but with gallons and gallons of water coming out of the fire hose pointed at your home, it’s definitely something you’ll need to contend with. SERVPRO of Metrocrest has the tools to dry out carpets, furniture and more, faster.
Salvaging your belongings is not only a way to keep restoration costs down, but it preserves a little peace of mind as well. Choosing a cleanup crew to come in right away can help you make the most of your remaining belongings, so you can reinstall them in your restored home when the job’s done.
