Fire Dangers at Home

Fires create smoke and soot. These elements are microscopic and may contain carcinogens which are not safe to inhale or touch. Fire cleanup is not a DIY project and should only be performed by trained professionals.

  • Do not breathe in fire smoke.
  • Do not stay in a compromised building.
  • Do not consume food or medication that were near the smoke.

Water damage results when firefighting efforts are needed. The dynamic of fire and water damage make the restoration process more complicated and urgent.

    • Mold Growth starts in less than 72 hours.
    • Water Damage Remediation happens after your property has been cleared by the fire department and roof tarping and board-up are complete.

What To Do After A Fire

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets.

  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open.
  • Clean and protect chrome with light coating of petroleum jelly or oil.
  • Wash houseplants on both sides of leaves.

What NOT To Do After A Fire

  • Don't attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire, heat or water without consulting an authorized repair service.
  • Don't use any canned or packaged food or beverages that may have been stored near the fire, heat or water.
