Fire & Smoke Damage Tips

What to do:

  • If the temperature is above 60 degrees, air out the house to reduce smoke odor.

  • Clean Formica, chrome, porcelain and aluminum fixtures to prevent permanent tarnishing or etching.

  • Discard any open food packages.

  • Change the air filter on your furnace if it uses forced hot air.

  • Tape damp cheesecloth over returns and supply registers to capture loose soot in the air.

What NOT to do:

  • Do not touch anything! Oil from your hands can permeate upholstery, walls and woodwork, causing additional damage.

  • Do not wash walls. Incorrect cleaning could compound the soot residue

Is Anything Salvageable After A Fire?

After a fire, it can seem like all hope is lost. Fire takes its toll on anything in its path, leaving behind piles of ash and charred remains. But even though it may not seem like it at first, there could be salvageable items left when the dust settles.

With the right efforts and help, furniture, photographs, glass, metal and other objects can be recovered. However, a fire damage professional should be consulted in order to determine what items on their property can still be used. If an item is not treated for fire and smoke damage, soot and other chemicals can be left on the item bringing lingering odors and even worse severe health risks.

It may take some time, but with expert fire restoration assistance you can definitely save something from a fire, just make sure to consult with an expert first.
