Should Homeowners Handle Fire Cleanup Themselves?
SERVPRO Pros Can Mitigate Fire Damage to Newburgh Homes
A home can experience significant damage from a fire. Tackling the cleanup on your own, or delaying restoration, can cause secondary damage that may be irreversible. It is critical to call in a professional restoration such as SERVPRO immediately.
Fire Damage Cleanup is Not a DIY Project
When fire damage impacts a Newburgh home, especially if it gets contained quickly, many people think they can handle cleaning and restoration on their own. But there are many reasons this is not a good idea, including:
- You could inhale smoke residue
- If the structure is weak, it could collapse
- Attempting to clean could cause the soot residue to spread
- Using DIY products can cause more damage
- Insurance may not cover homeowners doing the cleaning
