Cleaning Fire Damage Requires Professional Care
If you only had a small fire and only see soot damage, you might assume this is an easy task to handle on your own without getting the insurance company involved. Cleaning after a fire requires a detailed cleaning of your home or business from top to bottom, even in areas you think may not have been affected. One thing to do is to call JLJ Restoration & Construction, LLC to perform a chemical sponge test. This tool will help show us how much smoke soot you have in your home. Many times your entire kitchen cabinets have to be emptied, and every dish and appliance wiped clean. Without the proper chemicals, you can cause more damage to your surfaces if you attempt to remove soot on your own.
You should hire a professional upholstery cleaner to clean any smoke fire damage on your furniture. The lingering odors from smoke are notoriously difficult to remove completely. Smoke can also permeate wallpaper, drywall, and carpets, requiring expert attention and commercial smoke damage repair equipment.
Once you start adding up all the work, it makes more sense to contact a professional and your insurance company. The last thing you want is for your home to not be restored and still have a bad odor in it. Insurance might not cover the cost of your restoration if you didn't contact them in the first place.
