FIRE & SMOKE DAMAGE

A fire loss is a very complex situation because of the unique behavior of smoke. Smoke residue and standing water, or even humidity, can significantly harm your belongings. To minimize your loss, you need to know what to do from the start.

Prompt action can lower overall cost, as well as save precious items that might otherwise be lost. Morocco Restoration & Construction and their team of specialists will inspect your property to determine the degree of damage and the appropriate remedies.

The IICRC recommends the following tips on what to do in the aftermath of a home fire.

  • Contact your insurance company immediately. It is your responsibility to begin loss mitigation, including steps to prevent the damage from getting worse. Take inventory of damaged goods before discarding anything and save receipts for money spent relating to the fire loss.
  • Avoid falling structural components. Although fire authorities may allow you to enter the house, the area still could be hazardous. Look for structural damage that will need repair, like charred beams and sagging ceilings.
  • Stay away from electrical shock hazards. Check for exposed wiring. Also, be careful of damage inside walls and electrical lines not normally visible.
  • Keep people with allergies out of the home. People with severe allergies or respiratory problems should stay out of the area until initial cleanup is complete. Weather permitting; ventilate the home to remove soot residues.
  • Wipe down durable surfaces. Smoke residues combine with humidity to form acids that can stain grout, paint, bath fixtures, kitchen counter tops and many appliances. Immediate clean up of durable surfaces with household cleaners can dramatically limit your loss.
  • Call a professional. The IICRC recommends hiring a certified professional, such as Morocco Restoration & Construction, to provide advice and repair damage to your home after a fire. Fire restoration experts can help you get your home and furnishings back to a "pre-loss" condition.
