Most individuals simply call their insurance company to make a claim when a call to a restoration company could be more appropriate. Engaging the services of a restoration company can help individuals through the disaster process in multiple ways.

Temporary Mitigation

Any kind of disaster generates emotional stress and trauma that can affect an individual’s decision-making process. A restoration company responds quickly and will take immediate action to mitigate further damage. That can include securing windows, doors, the roof or other openings.

Security Measures

Believe it or not, there are intruders that will enter a structure after a disaster, even though the building is unsafe, thereby opening individuals up to a lawsuit if they’re injured. A restoration company understands the need to secure a building from entry to protect property owners and until various officials have performed any required examinations.

Works With Insurance

Restoration companies work directly with insurance companies to salvage a wide range of furnishings and remove items that are damaged beyond repair. It’s beneficial for clients and insurance companies prefer to restore rather than replace whenever possible.

Water Removal and Cleanup

Storms, flooding, sewer backups, and water from extinguishing flames are all ways in which furnishings and building interiors can sustain water damage. Specialized equipment is utilized to remove as much water as possible. The restoration company will perform clean up of the property, remove debris, and arrange for the appropriate method of waste removal.

Mold Remediation

Mold quickly grows and spreads in warm, damp conditions. A restoration company will utilize a lab to identify exactly what type of mold is present and establish the correct protocols for its removal.

Restoration

When attended to quickly, professional restoration services can evacuate a wide variety of furnishing and electronics and restore them to like-new condition. Moisture is removed, mold remediated, unpleasant odors eliminated, and furnishings completely cleaned and refreshed.

Candle Safety in your Home

Candles are becoming an increasingly popular method of scenting the air and eliminating odors. They’re particularly popular during holidays, but can easily ignite a fire without the proper precautions. The following tips enable individuals to safely enjoy candles in their home whether they’re being used to create ambiance or they’re providing light if the power goes out.

Burning Candles

Rule No. 1 is to never leave a candle burning unattended. There should always be at least one person in a room where the candle is burning and never leave them lit when leaving home. If everyone moves to another room, extinguish the candle. The safest way to put out a candle flame is with a candle snuffer.

The Base

Always place candles on a solid base for stability and one that’s large enough to comfortably catch any wax drippings.

Distance

Burning candles should never be placed near flammable items such as drapes, books or paper, furniture and bedding, carpets, or decorations. It only takes moments for those types of materials to ignite.

Moving Candles

You should never move a candle while it’s lit or the wax is still liquified. Bear in mind that liquified wax can take several minutes to completely cool and solidify.

Burning Limits

Candles aren’t designed to be burned down to a nub. Change them out before they burn too low. A good rule of thumb is to replace taper candles when about ½ an inch of candle length remains and two inches for pillar candles.

Spacing

It’s never a good idea to place candles too close together. Dripping wax from one can ignite another. A good safety distance is to leave at least three inches between candles.

Wicks and Drafts

Candle wicks that exhibit a high flame should be trimmed. Wait until the candle cools sufficiently. If the flame is flickering repeatedly, the candle may be in the line of an unknown draft. Extinguish the flame and when it’s safe to do so, move it to a different location.

Smoke and Fire Damage can Seem Overwhelming

There are many things that must be done after a fire has occurred and the average person just isn’t prepared to take all the necessary steps after such a catastrophic loss. Individuals will be dealing with the destruction of their home and belongings, along with the damage from soot, smoke, and water used by firefighters to extinguish the blaze.

The first step is to make sure everyone is out of the house and safe. Families that have experienced a fire will need a safe place to stay. That can mean renting a hotel or seeking assistance from the Red Cross, their church, or a similar organization.

Even though people will be in shock, there are certain actions that will need to be taken to restore the home and any vehicles that may have been collateral damage during the fire. Depending upon the extent of the damage and the amount of the insurance deductible, it may be less expensive for homeowners to pay for the cleanup themselves.

That’s when the services of a remediation and restoration company may be more appropriate and cost effective than filing an insurance claim. Restoration professionals will begin by boarding up the building to prevent any unwanted entry that could expose clients to a lawsuit.

As soon as the fire department deems it safe, the restoration company will assess the damage and document it. If an individual decides to file a claim with their insurance company, the restoration company will work with the insurer to clean up the site, rebuild or restore the structure, and preserve any items that can be salvaged.

A professional restoration company may be able to preserve some of a family’s belongings if the damage isn’t too severe. They have special techniques and methods that can be used to dry out possessions, prevent mold, and remove soot and the smell of smoke. Insurance companies like working with restoration companies since it’s less expensive for them and it has the added benefit for individuals of being able to potentially save some of their prized possessions.

Leave Damage Restoration to the Pros

Damage to homes and businesses can take many forms, from water, smoke and fire to mold and biohazardous materials. While many individuals may have plenty of handyman skills, home and business owners should always leave damage restoration to the professionals. There are a variety of dangers involved that restoration professionals are specially trained to handle.

Water is one of the most common types of damage that individuals will experience in South Florida, whether it’s from roof damage, leaky pipes and water heaters, flooding from rainstorms and hurricanes, or water from extinguishing a fire. Damage from any of those sources will require extensive work and there’s more to consider than just the damage.

When floors, attics, and furnishings get wet, the warm Florida environment fosters the growth of mold that can begin to replicate in as little as 24 hours. There are dozens of mold types that can be present and the proper treatment can’t be applied without knowing exactly which type of mold it is. Precautions must also be in place to prevent its spread as it’s removed and prevent other areas from being contaminated.

Restoration professionals are also uniquely qualified to address biohazards that can include crime scenes and septic systems that have overflowed, along with pathogens encompassing bacteria and viruses. All of those situations require a highly-trained team of specialists for clean-up, disposal, and to mitigate contamination.
