Steps Homeowners can Take to Assist With Fire Damage Restoration in Santa Rosa
Can You Do Part of Fire Recovery in Santa Rosa Beach Alone?
There is no room for error when Santa Rosa Beach homes fall victim to fire loss incidents. With the likelihood of spreading effects reaching new areas within hours of extinguishment, many residents rely on the prompt response of our SERVPRO professionals to reach the property and immediately begin mitigation and restoration efforts. As much as we can handle nearly every aspect of this recovery, there are some areas that you can handle on your own when necessary.
As much as fire damage in Santa Rosa Beach homes feels overwhelming and highly stressful, your involvement in the restoration of your house can ultimately save you money. Also, participating in the early stages of recovery can ensure that certain damaged contents in your property do not become ruined as they contact spreading soot particulates, smoke residues, or odors moving through your home.
We work to provide a seamless transition between the early mitigation stages, such as fire debris removal, and reconstruction that your home might need. Here are some of the ways that you can help, even before our SERVPRO team arrives:
- Carefully remove at-risk contents and belongings from affected areas when it is safe to do so. Moving these items to a secure area of your property can ensure that further damage does not occur while our professionals are in route.
- Get your family out of the house, especially when contending with a higher concentration of soot and airborne particulates. These carcinogens can cause health effects.
- If safe to do so, remove standing water from extinguished areas with the use of a wet/dry vac. If the damage is too significant, our team has more efficient, high-capacity extractors to use instead.
While it is always a good idea to trust in the experience and prompt response of our SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties team after a fire, there are ways that you can help your property as well. Give our team a call to help whenever you need us at (850) 267-0746.
