If you experience a home or business fire, the top priority, of course, is the safety of yourself and the ones you love. But even if the fire was a small one – in the kitchen, perhaps – the cleanup and restoration process can be an involved one.
In this issue, we’ll describe the fire restoration process.
Keep in mind that fires move quickly as they burn. It can move up, down and across in a flash.
When firefighters arrive, quite often they will break windows or even cut holes in roofs. The technique is called ventilation and is designed to slow the growth of the fire, and it can help save lives of those still inside, as well as save more of your property.
Even if they appear to be extinguished, fires can start again very quickly. Additionally, floors and roofs that may have been damaged by the fire could easily collapse.
Keep in mind that each fire is different, and the associated damage – including that from smoke – will vary from incident to incident.
Only after thoroughly inspecting the damage will the restoration professionals be able to provide you with a timetable for getting your house feeling like home again.
We hope it never happens to you or your family, but if your property has been damaged by fire or water, remember that the professionals here at J&M Keystone in San Diego are the ones to call to get your house looking and feeling like home again.
