If your home has been damaged by a fire, you are likely struggling to take inventory of damaged items, meet with insurance agents and adjusters, and dealing with the shock that comes with a traumatic event. With so much to think about, it is important not to overlook one of the most important-hiring a fire damage restoration company

A professional San Diego fire damage restoration company will professionally assess the damage to your house and belongings and will take care of the restoration process for you.  From wet and damaged carpets to smoke in the walls, these types of companies specialize in restoring damaged homes.

Before the fire restoration company arrives, you should throw away any food or medicine that has been exposed to smoke or fire, and be sure to change your furnace filter on a daily basis to remove soot, and turn on all fans and or de-humidifiers to help remove moisture.  Do not try to clean any damaged furniture on your own, however, since smoke and fire damaged furniture require special cleaning techniques.

As tempting as it may be to do some of the cleaning on your own, it is important to remember that fire and smoke removal require special cleaning methods. You should never attempt to wash painted or papered walls that have been damaged by smoke, as this can cause soot residue problems. You should also make sure that you do not try to clean smoke and fire damaged carpets on your own for the same reason.

The right flood damage restoration company can make the difference between a house full of ruined items and a clean, properly repaired home.  For your health, and for the preservation of your home, contact Orange Restoration, your San Diego fire restoration experts as soon as possible.
