Fire and Smoke Damage Restoration Tips
It is important to call for fire damage restoration and repair services immediately after the fire is put out because corrosive byproducts and chemicals can cause further damage. Once you contact ServiceMaster SouthWest for fire and smoke damage repair, you can perform the following actions to get a head start on the restoration process.
What to do After a Fire
- If the outside temperature is over 60 degrees, open the doors and windows to help air out your home.
- Prevent tarnishing on Formica, chrome, porcelain, and aluminum surfaces by wiping them down.
- Change the air filter on your furnace if it runs with forced hot air.
- Filter loose soot from the air by taping a damp cheesecloth over each vent.
- Dispose of all open food containers.
- If the power is out, thoroughly clean out your refrigerator.
- Fabrics with heavy smoke damage such as clothing and drapes can be submitted to us for restoration dry cleaning services.
What NOT to do After a Fire
