Did you experience a fire at your home or business?
A backdraft of emotions often sweeps over home or business owners after a fire damage. Fear, uncertainty, stress and doubt about the future of the property can overwhelm the owner long after the flames have been extinguished and the smoke has cleared.
The first 48 hours after a fire damage can make the difference between restoring versus replacing your property and personal belongings.
WHAT YOU CAN DO UNTIL HELP ARRIVES
Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from spreading and additional damage from occurring.
Place clean towels or old linens on rugs and high traffic areas and upholstery.
Coat chrome faucets, trim and appliances with petroleum jelly or oil.
Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpet.
Do not wash any walls or painted surfaces.
Do not shampoo carpet or upholstery.
Do not clean any electrical equipment.
Do not send clothing to a dry cleaner since improper cleaning may set smoke odor.
