Immediate Damage

Following the immediate fire damage, you don’t want to enter the structure until you have been given the ok from the fire marshal. After a fire, the structure is still very hot, and there could be nails, holes in the flooring, and other debris making it unsafe to walk through the structure. Items that could be immediately affected by the heat and soot of the fire even if it doesn’t destroy your home:

  • Food – canned goods should not be eaten if exposed to heat from a fire
  • Furniture – If your furniture doesn’t burn, it can still be susceptible to soot falling on the upholstery causing damage. The oils from the soot if not properly cleaned with the correct procedure and cleaning agents can cause more damage.
  • Books/Paintings – Oils from paintings can melt, books pages can become damaged just from the soot. A restorer familiar working with art and documents can restore these items for if they aren’t too damaged.

The biggest concern after a fire is the water in the home, not fire in fact. The reason being the water is the immediate concern is because of the amount of water in the house from the fire department putting out the fire, a fire hose can put out 80-95 gallons of water a minute. If the water sits for too long, it will begin to saturate the building materials and structure and cause additional damage. On top of the structure damage, water can cause mold growth as well if not cleaned up immediately. Once the fire is out, the damage is done. With water, the damage can happen over time and get progressively worse. Call a professional restoration company to respond and begin stabilizing your property that day, the longer you wait, the more damage you will have which will cause additional repair time and cost that the insurance may or may not cover.
