Tips While You Wait
After more than 32 years of restoration service experience, we still provide the fastest responses to your call. However, while you’re waiting for your remediation team, there are a few things you can do to make the process smoother.
Chances are, you’ve received given verbal or written instructions concerning your home from the local fire department. Even though you want to remain inside of your home, it isn’t safe to do so at this time.
If pets or children living in the home, keep them from where smoke damaged walls and other surfaces. Even the remaining residue contains carcinogens, as well as dangerous fumes that are hazardous to breathe.
Opening all of your windows can help eliminate the odors, as well as help any damp areas dry out. Although it won’t completely remove the smell of smoke, it will improve odors by removing as much of it as you can before we arrive.
After you’ve called us, you’ll want to call your insurance agent and file report. You are required by your policy to take action to mitigate the damages to your property, be it roof tarps, boarding up windows, or another way to secure the property.
If the fire caused your home to lose power, you’d want to empty out your refrigerator and freezer as soon as possible. Otherwise, you’ll have even more health hazards to contend with than you already do.
To maximize your insurance claim’s effectiveness, you’ll need to document everything that needs replacements, with photo or video. You may need to create multiple copies depending on what agencies need to see them.

Avoid Toxic Fumes & Ash
Even when the flames get extinguished, it isn’t safe to be around many items in the home. Appliances release toxic fumes when exposed to fire, and ash can continue smoldering for days after the event.
Although you’re eager to clean up your house, now is not safe to wipe away messes from porous or absorbent surfaces. They are probably coated with toxic residues, putting your skin at risk of harm.
Be sure not to sit on any upholstered items or consume any food that was in the exposed area. Also, many think that turning on the air conditioning may help, but it winds up spreading dust, soot, smoke, and ash further throughout the home.
Even your plants are vulnerable at this time. Attempting to water them when they have soot in and around their pots can accidentally poison them.
It’s best to leave the majority up to the professionals. Without the proper safety equipment, you may make yourself seriously ill or injured.
