Emergency Fire Damage Tips

September is National Preparedness Month, it is never bad to be prepared for the unthinkable. Here are some helpful tips if you suffer from fire damage. 

  • Keep hands clean.
  • Limit movement in the home to prevent further damage.
  • Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on carpeted traffic areas to prevent more soiling.
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open. 
  • Wipe soot from chrome on faucets and appliances then protect with a light coating of lubricant.
  • Do not attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contracting one of our SERVPRO professionals.
  • Do not attempt to shampoo carpet or upholster furniture.
  • Do not attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire or water without consulting a repair service.

Kitchen after devastating fire

After a Kitchen Fire

After a smoke or fire damage, ceilings, walls, woodwork, carpeting and floors will often need a thorough cleaning. SERVPRO will pretest the areas to determine the extent of damage, and then use the specific equipment and cleaning products required to clean and protect the different types of surfaces found in your home. Depending on the amount of soot, SERVPRO may even be able to reduce the cost of recovery by cleaning lighter soot deposits found on some surfaces, eliminating the expense incurred with repainting or refinishing. In other cases, SERVPRO will clean to “prepare for painting”. This process deodorizes and ensures the new paint will adhere properly to the surface.
