Prepare Yourself for Water Damage and Fire Restoration in DeKalb, IL

ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning Services by Skip provides disaster restoration services in DeKalb, IL and surrounding areas.

You thought you had plenty of time to get ready for National Preparedness Month. After all, you had 30 full days in September to do all the necessary preparations. But life intervened with all the back-to-school and changing season chaos, so when you finally logged back onto the page, you were horrified to realize National PrepareAthon! Day was only days away!

Emergency preparation is an admirable and necessary precaution. Fire damage and water damage, after all, can be very disruptive events in your life, causing unexpected stress and interruption beyond what the original emergency event delivered. The biggest part of being prepared is knowing who to call when the dust settles. For water damage restoration or fire restoration in DeKalb, IL, call on ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning by Skip for full services that will bring your building back to pre-loss conditions.

While fire damage and water damage risks can’t be prepared for or eliminated entirely, you can take steps to ensure the inconvenience of water damage and fire damage will be contained. This expedites the restoration process and ensures that water removal and fire restoration are performed effectively and efficiently.

Once a fire damage or smoke damage event is extinguished and contained, having sheets, blankets or plastic rolls on hand to hang up as barriers to prevent further smoke contamination to other parts of your building is essential. Also, be sure not to touch any areas with smoke damage or fire damage with your bare hands; when bodily oils come in contact with fire damaged areas, further damage can be done from chemical reaction that occurs.

When it comes to water damage, you should note where the most likely areas of the home are that could experience such damage, such as large water pipes or weak areas of the foundation where water could leak in during heavy rains. In such areas, you should have wet/dry vacuum stored so you can quickly remove as much excess water as possible.
