What To Do After A House Fire
Here’s What The Institute of Fire Damage Cleanup Says About Fire Cleanup
“Fire damage clean up is an arduous process that often requires the proper industrial equipment and time. A standard vacuum cleaner is rarely enough. In addition, time is of the essence. In the wake of a fire, when victims are faced with insurance matters, arrangements for interim housing, and possible health concerns, homeowners are unlikely to make salvage efforts the top priority. Sadly, this could present a costly dilemma. In these cases, the services of a certified fire restoration company are invaluable.” – Institute of Inspection Cleaning & Restoration Certificate
What You Can Do on Your Own
- Open all of the windows. You need to get the air moving and move the smoke out of the house.
- Increase ventilation. Run some fans or ceiling fans to move the smoke out of the house.
- Move pets and kids to a smoke-free environment. Smoke contains carcinogenic gases that can affect their health. Get everybody out of the house.
- Empty your refrigerator and freezer if there is no power. Once empty, prop the door open to prevent odors from building up inside.
- Inventory the contents of your home. Make a list of all items that need replacing. Take pictures of the damage, too. You will need copies for the insurance company, for your own personal records and possibly for the fire investigation authorities. Make extra copies just in case.
- Call an expert in fire damage clean up and restoration.
What You Should Leave to the Professionals
There are tasks you don’t want to attempt on your own due to the toxic gases or risk of smoldering ash. Fire restoration services have the proper safety equipment to get the work done without the risks.
- Don’t wipe down the walls, wood trim and furniture or any other absorbent surface.
- Don’t sit on or move upholstered furniture.
- Don’t consume any food product, including canned items, that were exposed to the extreme heat of the fire.
- Don’t turn on home systems like the furnace or air conditioner.
- Stay away from electrical devices like appliances, stereos or TVs, until the fire restoration service deems them safe.
