Frequently Asked Questions
The fire was small and I don’t see too much damage, can I clean it up myself?
Sometimes structures that have been directly damaged by a fire can easily be seen, but most of the time it’s the soot and smoke that have done even more damage than the flames. Even in the case of a small fire, smoke and soot can coat the walls, ceilings, windows, and light fixtures in your home or office. In minutes soot will cover surfaces and thicker levels of smoke penetrate your appliances and outlets.
Fire will always cause damage to your personal property and the structure itself, leaving lingering odors of smoke and soot if it isn’t cleaned professionally after the fire is put out. It’s always best to trust the professionals at Lake City Restoration with your fire damage restoration needs!
After a fire has been put out, what should I do next?
After emergency responders have put out the fire, make sure all of your family members and pets are safe. Once everyone who was in the building has been accounted for, call Lake City Restoration immediately so we can inspect your property and work with the fire department and your insurance company to create a fire damage restoration plan.
