How to Recover From A Fire and Why A Smoke Cleanup Service Is Important In Ellsworth, WI

March 7th, 2016

No matter who you are or where you live, fires can happen. They are scary and often unexpected, leaving homeowners stressed and unsure of what to do next. Where do you go? Who should you call while you go through the recovery process? Is there anything you can do to get things back to normal? What should be done for family members? We hear you. If you have recently experienced a fire in your home, ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning wants to help. Don’t lose sleep at night or take actions you will later regret. The information below should get you moving in the right direction.

Find a Temporary Shelter for Your Pets – If you plan to stay at a friend’s house or in a hotel room while you go through the recovery process, you may not be able to bring your pet. Don’t panic. Your veterinarian may have boarding available, or you can check with a reputable kennel. Remember to visit your pet regularly and make sure they get plenty of food and water. Talk to them in a calm voice and bring familiar toys or clothing with your scent on it. This will comfort them.

  • Pay Attention to Your Physical and Emotional Health – Of course, you also need to take care of the humans in your family. Don’t ignore your health under any circumstances. Do something that you can all enjoy together. Avoid watching disaster movies or news programs featuring fires. It may take some effort to do this, but you don’t want anyone to relive what happened in your home. Above all, realize that you won’t recover right away – it’s a process.
  • Check for Damage – Check the outside of your home for structural damage before you venture inside. Never go into your home without checking with the fire department first. If you do have permission, inspect the inside, too.
  • Hire a Cleanup Service – Hire ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning to help you with smoke cleanup. We use the latest cleaning equipment to give you the best results.
