Follow these steps to minimize damage to your home, business and belongings after a fire:

  • Always call a professional for assistance after a fire.  Irreversible etching damage can occur from corrosive byproducts in as little as 72 hours.
  • Air out your home or business if the temperature is above 60 degrees, so you can reduce the smoke odor.
  • Clean chrome, porcelain, formica, and aluminum fixtures & surfaces to prevent permanent damage from etching or tarnishing.
  • If your furnace uses forced hot air, change the air filter.
  • You can capture the loose soot in the air by taping damp cheesecloth over the supply registers & returns in your home.
  • All open food packages should be discarded.
  • If your electricity is off – clean your refrigerator and leave the doors open.
  • Send any clothing with smoke damage to a restoration dry cleaner.

Here’s what you shouldn’t do:  

  • Be careful not to touch upholstery, walls, woodwork or personal belongings with bare hands as oil from your hands can cause further damage.
  • Don’t wash your walls. Soot residue can further damage your walls if cleaned incorrectly.
  • Don’t clean upholstered furniture or carpeting.
  • Have all electrical appliances checked before using.
  • If you’re ceiling is wet, don’t use ceiling fixtures.
