Don't Be A Hoarder
As a fire restoration team, our technicians are in client's homes and personal spaces to remediate damaged areas.
Hoarding items can be the main reason why fires start in homes. Fire is one of many dangers in a hoarded home because much of the clutter consists of flammable materials. Fires can also occur when objects cover a heat vent or damaged wires. Moreover, clutter obstructs residents in case of a fire and first responders may not be able to navigate a hoarded home to rescue residents.
When the entire home is clutter-free, repairs should be done if needed. These can include repainting, re-carpeting, or damage restoration (after the fire, water, mold, or biohazard damage). Then, all the contents in the house including the salvageable items are disinfected.
