What to Expect in The First 48 Hours of Fire Damage

A fire is one nightmare that many households have unfortunately had to deal with. Damage from fire and smoke is most catastrophic when the flames are harsh, but the damage does not stop when the fire is put out. Acidic soot and smoke continue to eat away at property and even the water used to put out the fire will begin to damage your personal property, foundation, and structure. So, what should you expect and how should you act in the first 48 hours of fire damage? Tidal Wave Response suggests that you remain calm and vigilant.

Who to Call?

After you have called the fire department, we advise that you call the fire damage company like those at Tidal Wave Response. Calling the insurance provider first may seem like the intuitive thing to do, but having an inspection done before the insurance agent arrives can save you from being low-balled. The contractor from the fire restoration will inspect the damage and determine the scope and amount of damage as an objective and non-bias third party. Tidal Wave Response is available 24/7 and has response times of under 30 minutes. Give us a call whenever you need.

Damage to Look Out For

The first 24 to 48 hours after a fire are known as the ‘golden hours’ of recovery, meaning effective emergency response should be sought as soon as possible. Even after the fire is out, the soot, smoke, and even water will deteriorate and corrode valuable personal property and the structure of your building. Even fire extinguishers release dry chemicals that can be destructive to property. The specialist from Tidal Wave Response will begin with an inspection and assessment then move onto saving property that can be salvaged. Afterwards, damage will be mitigated and soot and smoke will be removed before the property can begin the restoration process.

Tidal Wave Response Is Available 24/7

As mentioned earlier, it is absolutely crucial that you respond to fire damage as soon as possible. Even after the fire is out, the damage continues, and the first 48 hours are vital to keep the damage at bay. Tidal Wave Response is proud to be available around the clock with response times of under 30 minutes. So, after you have called the fire department, give Tidal Wave Response a call to get the inspection and assessment started. Our friendly representatives are on standby for your call.
