There are plenty of half-truths and misconceptions when it comes to property damage mitigation and restoration. Though some such myths might have been partially true in the past, times have changed in terms of technology, approach and training. Let’s take a look at the top myths.
An Immediate Cleaning is Unnecessary as a Fire-Damaged Home Will Always Smell of Smoke
The truth is that the failure to clean smoke residue in the immediate aftermath of an Atlanta home or business fire might result in some irreversible damage. A prompt cleaning is an absolute must to prevent such damage.
Replacing is Cheaper Than Restoring
In many instances, cleaning and salvaging the home’s structure and contents is more cost-efficient than replacing everything.
A DIY Approach is Always Cheaper Than Hiring a Professional Restoration Company
Though this is true in some instances, a faulty repair almost always proves more expensive in the long run.
Drying the Home Ends When Carpets Have Dried
Carpets dry faster than the home’s structure. The drying process is not complete until all structural items, ranging from the walls to the cement floors are completely dry. You won’t know if a total dry has occurred unless you let the professionals test your Atlanta home with specialized sensors.
Cleaning Carpets Causes Them to Become Dirty More Quickly
This might have been partially true in the past. However, modern cleaning techniques and materials do not leave a soap residue that pulls in dirt. The contemporary cleaning process makes use of an elaborate approach and special materials that keep carpets clean across the long haul.
