FIRE DAMAGE RESTORATION

MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION

After fire or smoke damage, it will be natural for you to want to clean it yourself.  We recommend that you call a certified, licensed professional who can make an expert evaluation of your situation and recommend the procedures that will best protect and restore your home and valuables. The wrong actions can make restoration more difficult and could greatly delay your return to normal.

WHAT TO DO
  • Call a certified restoration professional right away to help evaluate the situation.
  • Clean and protect chrome trim on kitchen appliances with a light coating of Vaseline or oil.
  • Open windows for ventilation (weather permitting).
  • Change furnace filter if blower is operational.
  • Empty freezer and refrigerator completely if electricity is off, and prop doors open.
  • Clean and protect smoked bathroom faucets, tub fittings and towel bars with a light coating of oil.
  • Pour antifreeze in toilet bowls, sinks and tubs to prevent freezing if heat is off in winter.
  • Wash plants with water on both sides of leaves (softened water helps).
  • Call a plumber to winterize if heat is off in cold weather.
  • Remove pets (especially birds) to clean environments.
WHAT NOT TO DO
  • Wipe or attempt to wash walls, ceilings or other absorbent surfaces.
  • Use upholstered furniture if this can be avoided.
  • Use exposed food items, or canned goods which have been subjected to heat.
  • Use TV’s stereos or electrical appliances until cleaned and checked.
  • Send smoked garments to an ordinary dry cleaner or laundromat. Improper cleaning may set smoke and odor.
