The Top 3 Tips for Hiring a Fire Restoration Company, St. Augustine, Florida

A house fire can be incredibly damaging to your home. Even when flames don't spread far, smoke alone can require professional treatment. A fire restoration company can restore your home to its original condition. If you are in the process of hiring a contractor, it is important that you find the best one for you.

Stick to these tips when hiring a fire restoration company:

  • Ask for Advice: The first thing you should do is talk to trusted family and friends. Have they ever used a fire restoration service? Which do they recommend? If a family member was satisfied with a certain company, you can trust that you will be as well. Likewise, go online and look for reviews. Facebook is an excellent source of information.
  • fire restorationAsk for a Time Estimate: In the case of fire and smoke damage, timing is imperative. Within hours of the accident, even a put-out fire can permanently damage marble countertops, bath fixtures, furniture, and metals. After a few days, your walls will be affected. Within a month, silver can corrode, and glass, crystal, and china may become pitted due to the acidic residue. Because of this, it is important that you find a fire restoration team that can repair your home quickly.
  • Ask for Licensing: To ensure a company is legitimate, always ask to see their licensing and accreditation. A credential from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification proves the workers have the skills and knowledge to perform the job correctly.
