What You Should Do After a Fire

While you wait for professionals to arrive, there are different steps you can take to reduce the amount of damage, such as:

  • Air out the space to reduce smoke odor (if the temperature is above 60 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Stay ahead of etching and tarnishing by cleaning laminate, chrome, porcelain, and aluminum fixtures
  • Get rid of any open food; if the electricity is off, clean out refrigerators and prop doors open
  • If a furnace uses forced hot air, swap the air filter for a fresh one
  • Tape damp cheesecloth over returns and supply registers to help catch loose soot particles

On the flipside, things you should not do include:

  • Never touch anything with bare hands – the oils in your skin cause further damage
  • Do not pull up or attempt to clean attached carpeting or upholstery
  • Do not use any electrical appliances until they’re inspected
  • If the ceiling is wet do not use any ceiling fixtures

Don’t hesitate to reach out with questions! We’re happy to offer our best advice in these trying times.
