Lessening the Effect of Fire Damage in Falmouth Homes 

As much as many Falmouth homeowners might like to, it is impossible to continually protect and care for your property as you might like. When disasters like fire damage occur, you have many effects that require your attention and a skilled response before they continually worsen. There are ways that even unskilled and unprepared homeowners can help to improve the condition of their property in the time it takes for our professionals to arrive on the scene. 

Understand foremost that the safety of your family is paramount and that if fire damage in your Falmouth home is too excessive or hazardous, that you should not attempt these listed objectives. Damage assessment and preliminary mitigation efforts are not worth risking your health or wellbeing for, but if first responders and firefighters have deemed the house safe to re-enter for a brief period, there are some ways that you can help our SERVPRO professionals in route to your damaged address. 

One of the primary objectives for every homeowner when contending with any level of fire damage to their property is protecting their possessions and personal belongings. As much of an investment as you have made in specific items, furniture, and electronics, these can all become part of a damage claim and replaced with coverage through your insurance. What cannot get replaced, are photographs, keepsakes, heirlooms, and other treasures. 

While you can do nothing to prevent the presence of soot, smoke, and odors in the house, you can have an active role in how they can move from the ignition point to unaffected points of the property. By shutting down the air circulation at the thermostat, you can reduce the movement of these airborne effects to unsullied points of the house. 

These are two quick tips that do not require you to be in a damaged house long in the span between when you call our SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands professionals and when we arrive a short time later. To make fire losses “Like it never even happened.” give our rapid response team a call 24/7 at  (508) 888-5985.
