What To Do After A Fire
Fire Damage Tips
Here are some important tips after you have a fire damage in your residence or business:
- Keep your hands clean. It is easy to spread soot and you do not want to make a bigger mess than there already is.
- Limit movement in the home to also 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.
