You know there is going to be damage and problems as a result of the fire damage. Next, you need to handle the demo and cleanup work to get the property back down to a clean slate. Finally, you can contact fire and water damage restoration professionals to clean out the property thoroughly. Remove everything that has been damaged.

The next step is you must use a licensed and insured general contractor that can do the work for you. Again, this is not the place to attempt to save money.

The last step is to do a complete rehab of the property, just like you would if it was not a fire damaged property.
