A home or business fire is a terrible event in a person’s life and one in which brings lots of decisions that have to happen very quickly and under stressful conditions. Eco Tech understands this and with the highest level of professional training, guides their clients through this very difficult process. Very few people know everything that must be done when faced with a fire and it is very important that all of these steps are followed and followed in the right sequence. Most people rely on their insurance company to guide them through this very difficult time and unfortunately that is not always the best way to go about things. Hiring a third-party fire restoration company guarantees that your interests are put first and not the shared interest of the insurance company (money) and the restoration company they use (saving the insurance company money). Many people are shocked to find out all the necessary steps needed to not only clean and repair the immediate area of the fire, but also what must be done throughout the balance of the home in any fire damage restoration project. The most important thing that people must know is the carcinogenic nature of a home after a fire. Breathing in soot and smoke causes cancer. Plain and simple. Even if the smell is oh so faint, it must be filtered and cleaned with the proper air scrubbers. Being exposed to a home or business that had even minor smoke damage for more than a few hours is not advised. Consult a fire restoration and cleaning company about whether you should remain in the home or leave. After your health the next item of importance is your property. We are all aware of the smell of wood burning. If you’re fortunate the only time you have been up and personal with burning wood is in a fireplace or camp fire. You know if you stand near a camp fire for just a few minutes that your clothing and hair and skin literally wreak of the smell of smoke. If you looked very carefully you would also notice that you have a layer of soot on you and your clothing. Maybe you’ve tried to clean the smoke smell out of your clothing and realized that even after going through the washer that the smell is still there. That is because it takes a special sequence of steps to really get the smoke and soot smell out of your clothing. This involves many different methods such as Ozone treatment, hydroxyl treatment, specialized dry cleaning etc. Specialized cleaning must be performed on all of the items that were exposed to smoke in a home. It is extremely important that you are being guided by a knowledgeable professional that has your interests first and foremost.
