Fire Damage Tips

Here are some important tips after you have a fire damage in your residence or business:

  1. Keep your hands clean. It is easy to spread soot and you do not want to make a bigger mess than there already is.
  2. Limit movement in the home to also prevent further damage.
  3. Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on carpeted traffic areas to prevent more soiling.
  4. If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open.
  5. Wipe soot from chrome on faucets and appliances then protect with a light coating of lubricant.
  6. Do not attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting SERVPRO of Brookhaven, McComb & Columbia.
  7. Do not attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first consulting us.
  8. Do not attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire or water without a repair service.
