Reacting to Fire Damage
Fires are among the most destructive disasters that can occur within a home or building and the damage will continue to spread even after the fire is put out. Once the flames are gone, there is still soot and corrosive byproducts from burnt synthetic materials present that can spread beyond the area directly affected by the fire and cause tarnishing and etching on delicate household surfaces.
This damage can quickly become permanent and leave the affected surfaces and furnishings unsalvageable without quick enough restoration. The technicians of ServiceMaster EMT will effectively remove tarnishing and etching from at-risk household surfaces including brass, chrome, aluminum, marble, tile, porcelain, carpeting, and upholstery using effective chemical cleaners.
Taking the right actions in the aftermath of a fire will help prevent the damage to your home and personal belongings from becoming permanent and avoid extensive structural damage which can be expensive to repair.
Fire Damage Repair – What You Can Do
- Contact ServiceMaster EMT to begin the fire damage restoration process.
- If the temperature is above 60 degrees, air out your home by opening up your doors and windows.
- Prevent damage by wiping down Formica, aluminum, chrome, and porcelain fixtures.
- If our furnace uses forced hot air, change the air filter.
- Filter soot from the air by covering return and supply vents and registers with damp cheesecloths.
- Throw away any open food containers.
- If the power is out, clean out your entire refrigerator.
- Submit your smoke damaged clothing to us for restoration dry cleaning.
Fire Damage Restoration – Steps to Avoid
- Do not touch soot damaged surfaces because the oil from your skin can cause further damage.
- Do not attempt to clean soot residue from the walls because improper cleaning will compound the residue.
- Do not attempt to clean your carpet or upholstery.
- Do not use electrical appliances that have not been inspected for safety.
- Do not use ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.
