Fire Damage Restoration Work on Your Home Can Be Minimized in Several Ways

Although not always possible, there are ways you can potentially minimize your fire damage restoration expenses. These measures involve everything from changing your everyday habits and eliminating household fire hazards to buying and setting up effective fire extinguishing systems.

The Lafayette fire damage restoration experts at SERVPRO know several preventative steps local homeowners can take to limit their overall remediation needs. All these efforts attempt to lessen potential fire and smoke damage, reduce fire restoration and smoke remediation costs, and ultimately make house fire cleanup efforts less time-consuming and troublesome.

You can take the following measures to reduce your fire and smoke damage:

  • Educate yourself on the methods of effectively extinguishing various types of household fires, so you can extinguish the flames before they become uncontrollable.
  • Be careful when cooking and never leave stoves, ranges, and other such appliances unattended while fixing meals.
  • Buy and place appropriately rated fire extinguishers in your kitchen so they are readily available if a fire breaks out.
  • Always be mindful if you smoke cigarettes or cigars and never leave them unattended or fall asleep while smoking.
  • Install a sprinkler system in your home to address potential house fires early, before they can cause extensive damage
  • Properly maintain the area around your home, clearing away fallen leaves and trimming trees and bushes growing too near your residence.
