Restore your house after fire rather than move

When looking to restore your home the first and best thing to do is to contact your home insurance company.
Many people either decide to or are forced to move once a fire devastatingly destroys their home. Some people are able to stay because the fire didn’t cause too much damage, and the home is able to be restored. Many people choose to stay because it can be cost saving. Homes are an investment, and to save all you’ve invested, restoration may be the best option.

When looking to restore your home the first and best thing to do is to contact your home insurance company. They will be able to help you determine what is in your budget, and how much they’re willing to contribute. In some cases your insurance company might even refer you to qualified, trusted professionals, at a lower rate. This is also the best way to determine the best rates possible.

It is also important to know that there are many hazards to avoid if you’ve chosen to restore your house, rather than move. Extinguishing of the fire can cause damage in itself.  Within 24 hours after a house fire is extinguished, mold and/or mildew can begin to grow, because of this, it is crucial that house restoration begins as soon as possible. Mildew and mold can be deadly, causing repertory and breathing problems. More hazards posed after a house fire, includes damage to your home. Avoid entering the house after a fire; you never know what dangers may exist. The roof may cave in, the floor may drop, or leaked carbon monoxide could be inhaled.

Always leave home restoration to the professionals. They have the proper equipment to deal with safety hazards previously mentioned. Not to mention, they know what they’re doing. Seek shelter in a place that is trusted, while home restoration is taking place. The entire process can take a while given the size of your home, and how much damage the fire caused. It can initially take anywhere from weeks to months.

If you are unable to hire a contractor or company to restore your home, and are having to do it yourself, there are some key things you should keep in mind. Make sure to air out your home, with the purpose of eliminating the chance of mold to grow. Remove all fabrics that may have been damaged, including rugs, curtains, clothes, furniture, etc. Repair the structure of your home, and be sure to use a dehumidifier, to remove water left by the fire extinguish. There is hope and resources available to restore your home. Rest assured, your investment can remain, with some work of course.
