What to Expect While Cleaning Up Fire Damage in Oconto, WI

Posted at 3:23 PM

It may have been small. It may have only lasted a few minutes. It may not have made much of a dent in your life, or your day, or your afternoon. But the fire that was burning in your Oconto, WI, home has just gone out. Maybe it started in the kitchen, or maybe it started in the garage. It could have been a natural disaster or a sudden case of very bad luck. But the fire is officially out… so now what? The team at ServiceMaster Recovery by Restoration Holdings wants you to know what to expect after the fire has been doused, and who you can count on when you need help cleaning up fire damage.

When it comes to cleaning up fire damage, first responders are by no means your only resource. It’s important to stress however that regardless of the size or intensity of the fire, you should always call 911. Even if you have the most foolproof fire plan in history, it’s still better to have a backup in case a stray spark decides to jump to a curtain or bookshelf.  As long as that fire is burning, you should not consider the situation dealt with.

Once you’ve called for help and the fire has been put out, it’s time to call for help again. You’ll need fire damage experts to assess exactly what sort of services you’ll need for a full recovery. Of course, you may assume that you don’t need this service if the fire was contained to, say, a solitary sauce pan. But even if the burn was small, that doesn’t mean that fire damage hasn’t occurred. A single burning sauce pan can certainly still leave appliances, walls, and ceilings with smoke damage and scorch marks.  Contained or not, it’s still fire damage.

Once the fire damage assessment has been completed, the fire damage cleanup team will do everything possible to contain the damage and begin the process of cleaning up fire damage completely. The fire damage restoration experts at ServiceMaster Recovery by Restoration Holdings will take special measures to restore everything in your home to its original condition, or assist you in taking any other necessary steps towards recovery.
