An appliance in your home short circuited and had an electrical fire and caused damage in your home. The first thing you want to do is make sure that you disconnect any of the power to that particular appliance, so you don’t run the risk of the fire starting back up, reigniting and creating even more damage that has already occurred.
Once that has been taken care of, you want to make sure that you inspect the entire home for soot and dust that could have collected from the smoke. One of the telltale signs that smoke or soot got into a room is you look in the corners of the ceilings, and you’ll see cobwebs will collect that soot and that smoke and they’ll turn black. So, cobwebs that you didn’t even know were in the corner of your room will turn black and they’ll show themselves. That’s how you would know that, that room actually did get affected by the smoke and soot damage.
The next thing you want to do is hire a professional contents company. It is going to be much easier for your insurance to reimburse you for your items that were damaged or lost in the fire with the way they inventory all of your items that were in your home. So that’s one of the number one tips that I can give you guys for taking care of electrical fire.
