The Dos and Donts of Fire and Smoke Damage
The U.S. Fire Administration has this booklet to help with next steps. We've compiled even more steps to take below.
Things you SHOULD do:
- Limit the movement and keep hands clean in the structure to prevent soot particles from being permeated into carpet, upholstery, walls and woodwork causing more damage.
- Clean and protect chrome trim on kitchen appliances, bathroom faucets, tub fittings, cupboard handles etc. with a light coating of vaseline or other oil.
- Remove pets (especially birds) to a clean environment.
- Open windows for ventilation.
- Empty freezer and refrigerator completely if electricity is off; prop doors open and wash plants with water on both sides of leaves (water softner helps).
- Blow off or brush vacuum loose smoke particles from upholstery, drapery and carpet.
- Pour antifreeze in toilet bowls and sinks and tubs to prevent freezing if heat is off in winter. Call plumber to drain heating system if heat is off in winter.
- Change furnace filter.
- Tape double layers of cheese cloth over air registers.
Things you SHOULD NOT do:
- Wipe or wash walls, ceilings or other absorbent surfaces.
- Use upholstered furniture.
- Use exposed food items or canned goods which have been subjected to excessive heat.
- Use television, stereos or electrical appliances until cleaned & checked.
- Send smoked garments to an ordinary dry cleaner - may set smoke & odor.
- Use do-it-yourself home carpet or upholstery cleaners.
