The process of recovering from fire damage in your home is often a difficult and time-consuming one. Chances are that you have a lot of different things that need attending to as you start the process of getting back to normal. In today’s blog, we’re going to focus on the three R’s of fire restoration that every homeowner should know: Remove, Repair, Replace.
Fire Restoration Rs #1: Remove
The first R that we’ll discuss today is Remove. In this scenario, you and a certified fire restoration team will remove the water and remove the damaged items. The first step requires that any standing water be flushed out of your home. By hiring a professional company, you will have access to powerful equipment that will remove the water and get your home completely dry.
In the second part of this R, you and your remediation team will remove any damaged items left inside your home. This part might hurt a bit, especially if family heirlooms and other irreplaceable items were damaged. Parting with these items may be difficult but getting them out of the house will reduce further risk. This is especially true if items have been exposed to mold or other dangerous scenarios. In the second and third Rs, we will look at how to address damaged items through repair or through replacement.
Rs #2: Repair
The second R in today’s blog is Repair. In this step, your fire restoration team will determine how to repair your home and some of your damaged possessions. Once your home has been completely dried, this R can happen. A walk-,through of the property can be done to make note of all the issues that need to be corrected. This stage may also include a visit from your insurance company. Therefore, some of your damaged items can be repaired by the team or by another outside vendor.
Fire Restoration Rs #3: Replace
The third and final R that we’ll discuss is Replace. Items that were ruined beyond repair are replaced. Additionally, this step can be made easier by your insurance company. If you have not already begun the claim process, this stage will be critically important. Photographs and estimates provided to your insurer can help keep more money in your pockets. It’s important to remember that items can be replaced, but your life cannot.
