Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration in Ann Arbor
Fire damage can be one of the most devastating losses a property owner can experience. Some of the most common causes of fires include lint buildup in dryers, electrical fires, and grease fires, as well as accidental ignition of flammable items.
However, sometimes smoke damage is even worse. Smoke can permeate walls, seep into carpets in unaffected rooms, and cause sooty buildups throughout the property. Smoke can also contain dangerous chemicals that pose health risks to everyone exposed, and those chemicals can stick around long after the fire is extinguished.
That’s why it’s so important to work with a fire damage restoration team that will help prevent further damage to your home or business.
What to Do After a Fire
After you’ve experienced a fire, large or small, follow first responders’ safety instructions. Move your family and pets to a smoke-free environment; smoke can pose serious health risks.
Open all the windows to circulate air and push smoke out of your home, and immediately get in touch with a fire remediation specialist who can help you salvage your belongings and save your space. The sooner you get help, the better off you’ll be.
