Fire Control Procedures
- On December 28, 2010
Fighting fires often requires substantial quantities of water, in many cases spreading to parts of the structure not affected directly by the fire. The problem is often compounded when the fire (and water) damaged home is boarded up and left unattended while adjusters and contractors prepare estimates. Any delay in initiating proper drying procedures leads to a substantial increase in the amount of damage. As with all water damage, emergency procedures should be initiated as soon as possible to reduce primary and secondary damage.
