Fire & Smoke Damage

Do:

Limit movement in the house to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpet.

Keep hands clean.  Soot on hands can further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.

Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.

If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator completely and prop doors open to help prevent odor.

Wipe soot from chrome on kitchen and bathroom faucets, trim and appliances, then protect these surfaces with a light coating of lubricant.

If heat is off during winter, pour RV antifreeze in sinks, toilet bowls holding tanks and tubs to avoid freezing pipes and fixtures.

Wash both sides of leaves on house plants.

Change HVAC filter, but leave system off until a trained professional can check the system.

Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers to stop particles of soot from getting in or out of the HVAC system.

Don't:

Attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting the restoration company.

Attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first contacting the restoration company.

Attempt to clean any electrical appliances (TV sets, radios, etc...) that may have been close to fire, heat or water without first consulting with an authorized repair service.

Consume any food or beverages that may have been stored close to fire, heat or water.  They may have been contaminated.

Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet.  Wiring may be wet or damaged and may cause electrical shock; and air movement may create secondary damage.

Send garments to the dry cleaner.  Improper cleaning may set in smoke odor.
