When a fire hits your home, the feeling of loss can be overwhelming. This is why most homeowners tend to start cleaning up immediately after the fire has been put out.
While this is human nature for a person to want to pick up the pieces and get things back in order as quickly as possible, cleaning up immediately after a fire is actually not a good thing to do. You need to have the damages assessed by insurance professionals and prepare an insurance claim while the damages are fresh and before clean-up efforts begin. This will help you maximize the financial benefits of your claim.
Once that issue is settled and you begin clean-up efforts, it is wise to leave the task to professionals because soot and smoke damage is not something that you can effectively handle without special equipment and chemicals.

To help you prevent further damage to your home, and to stop you and your family from getting sick, here are some after-the-fire Do's and Don’ts that you should be aware of and follow to make your restoration experience more successful:
