3 Reasons to Use Board-Up or Tarp Services After a Fire

A large fire in your New Lenox, IL, building can cause damage in a variety of ways. One issue that you might have is missing areas in the roof. If this is the case, you should consider having your roof boarded up or covered in tarp during the fire cleanup and restoration process. The following are some reasons that this is beneficial.

1. Prevent Further Damage From Bad Weather and Debris
Depending on the severity of the fire and the extent of the damage, it might take a while for fire cleanup to be completed. During this period, you don’t want anything to cause further damage as this can cost you precious time as well as money. Rain can cause water damage, and wind can carry debris into the building. Keeping your roof covered will help prevent this.

2. Keep Out Animals
Along with debris, you might find that some furry creatures have found their way inside the building if it is not properly covered. This can cause a variety of problems, so it is best to cover any open spaces to keep any rodents, birds or larger animals out of the property until roof repair is finished.

3. Reduce the Chances of a Break-In
Unfortunately, many people might see your damaged building as an easy target for theft or vandalism. Your building likely has a variety of valuable property inside that would be costly to replace. If there are areas of the building missing, it can be easy for others to take advantage of the situation. Using board-up or tarp services will help deter this, as it will be more difficult to get inside.
Along with fire cleanup and repairs, a fire damage restoration company can perform services to cover up any missing parts of the building. This will help keep your property safe during the process and can help reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to return your building to its previous condition.
