Tips For Fire Damage
- Call ProCare: After you experience a fire, it is imperative to have a knowledgeable, certified professional assess, clean, and restore your property to ensure it is completed safely and efficiently. Our team is on call and available 24 hours a day. We also recommend consulting with one of our technicians before attempting to clean the following: walls or painted surfaces, carpets or upholstery, and electrical appliances exposed to fire.
- Avoid Additional Soot Damage: By limiting your movements and keeping your hands clean, you can reduce the amount of soot that attaches to your carpets, walls, possessions and more.
- Cleaning Recommendations: After fire damage, many of your items and possessions may be dirtied by soot or ash. At ProCare Restoration Services, we recommend the following tips regarding cleaning your belongings:
- Clothes: If your clothes have been affected by smoke or fire damage, it is imperative that they are cleaned appropriately. Improperly cleaning your clothes may set the smoke odor. We send one weeks worth of your clothing to our specialty dry cleaning to be rushed processed.
- Kitchens & Bath: To reduce soot buildup, you can wipe down your faucets, and trim.
- House Plants: In order to properly care for and clean your plants that have been damaged by fire, make sure to wash both sides of the leaves.
- Refrigerators: Often times during a fire you will lose power throughout your home. To protect your refrigerators and freezers, be sure to completely empty them of any food and prop open doors. This eliminates the potential for strong odors and microbial growth that can develop.
- Turn Off HVAC System: After you have experienced a fire, turn off your HVAC until a professional is able to review and check your system. If you experience a fire during cold or winter temperatures, protect your plumbing by pouring RV antifreeze in your tubs, holding tanks, toilet bowls, and sinks to prevent burst or freezing pipes.
- Shut Off Electrical: To avoid additional damage and the possibility of electrical shock, turn off the electricity.
