Don’t forget about the smoke!
If you experience fire damage, know that you aren’t completely out of the woods yet. The ash and smoke left behind can cause major damage such as extensive corrosion, etching and discoloration, not to mention lingering strong odors. Make sure your insurance covers smoke damage because you’ll need to hire a professional, certified company to properly remove all of the ash and smoke to ensure you and your family are safe.
The quicker you do this, the better, because as smoke sets in, it only gets harder to clean and more costly.
