5 Steps of Home Restoration After a Fire, Delhi, Ohio

If you’ve experienced a fire in the home, you’ll likely face fire, smoke, and water damage. The longer you delay the home restoration process, the greater chance the damage becomes permanent. Tri-State Restoration the top emergency restoration team in Cincinnati, OH, shares the necessary steps to restore your property after a fire.

Home Restoration Steps Following a Fire

1. Contact a Restoration Company

Water tends to spread quickly throughout a house, causing many problems such as mold, mildew, rust, corrosion, and the warping of doors and windows. Contacting home restoration services as soon as possible ensures the problem doesn’t become worse.

2. Inspect the Damage

The restoration company will inspect the damage and make an assessment. This will allow them to create a plan of how to best fix the home and save as many items as they can.

3. Board-Up Windows and Tarp Roof

Fire damage compromises the stability of windows, walls, and roofs. Boarding up missing windows or walls, as well as tarping any missing parts of the roof, will protect your home from further damage, such as rain or snow.

4. Remove Water

Dehumidifiers and air movers will get rid of the rest of the water and ensure the home is dry.

5. Remove Smoke

Like water, smoke damage worsens the longer it lingers. Special equipment is used to remove smoke and soot from ceilings, walls, and other surfaces that may be damaged.
