Try to relax and feel how you feel.

Fires can be very distressing. Your mind is likely to be overwhelmed by the reality that is happening, paralyzed by what you will do next, and overwhelmed by the number of things you must do now. Take a deep breath.

It seems that everything is beyond your control. You don't know where to start; you want things to "return to normal." Try to relax your emotions. You will be sad. You will be scared. It's ok.

Understand that cleaning takes time

Fire damage repair may take longer than you desire. We all like snapping our fingers, repairing, fixing, and cleaning things. However, it takes time to repair fire damage. The stress and anxiety will not go away faster, nor will it allow you to return to your own home. Knowing this early will enable you to accept the process and believe that things will go as expected. Although it is difficult, try not to let your mind wander due to anxiety, depression, or anxiety. Try to limit your attention and focus on one day and one decision. There are many things you cannot change during the cleaning process. You cannot change what happened or minimize the amount of cleanup, but it may take a day to complete the steps required for the day because you know that things will eventually return to normal.

 Depending on the degree of damage and structural integrity of the house, for example, in a small fire, taking waterproof measures can prevent further damage, such as mold.

Used for ventilation to slow down the spread of fire

These vents allow black smoke to escape, making it easier for firefighters to complete their work and see what is happening. In addition, firefighters use hundreds of liters of water to extinguish the fire. Water sprayed into your home can cause harm. If there is no apparent structural damage and the fire brigade reports that it is safe to enter the property, further damage can get reduced by removing the stagnant water. If doors and windows get damaged by fire or firefighters, you must cover your belongings to prevent theft and vandalism and prevent unauthorized persons from entering unsafe areas. Your insurance agent can authorize you to start this process and confirm the repair company use tarps or wood planks to help protect your property.
