After a fire, safety is the first consideration
If you’ve suffered a fire in your home or business, do not touch any surface and you should call us ASAP. While awaiting the arrival of our fire damage cleanup team, there are several things you can do to help.
First, safety for you, your family and possessions is the primary consideration. Only enter the property once firefighters tell you it’s safe to do so.
And, it may be helpful to place old linens or towels on carpeted traffic areas. Even then, limit movement in the property to keep soot particles from becoming embedded into carpets and upholstery. Also, wash any affected plants on both sides of their leaves.
Be careful not to use any electrical outlets or circuits which may have been affected by fire damage or water damage.
It’s important to avoid using any electrical appliances that may have been affected by heat, fire damage or water damage. If the electricity is turned off, empty the refrigerator and freezer and prop the doors open.
Don’t try to wash any surfaces or shampoo any carpets or upholstery by yourself; wait for our team to arrive – The wrong techniques might make the damage worse.
Also, sending any clothing to be dry-cleaned, first consult with our fire damage cleanup professionals; the wrong type of cleaning may cause smoke odors to become permanently “set” into clothing.
