When you experience a home fire, getting back to normal is likely to be the first thing on your mind. However, failing to go through the proper fire damage restoration process can leave your home vulnerable to long-term damage and may even put your family in danger. Cleaning up yourself after a fire is not an option, because only a professional fire damage restoration team can determine if your home is structurally safe for your family. Further, smoke damage restoration is almost impossible for a layperson to complete, and failing to thoroughly repair smoke damage means the odor will remain in your home indefinitely.
