What is next after a fire?

Limit the movement in the home to prevent the spread of soot particles and keep them from being embedded into upholstery and carpets.  Keep your hands clean so as not to further soil the upholstery, walls, or woodwork.

  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas.
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and prop doors open.
  • Clean and protect chrome with light coating of petroleum jelly or oil.
  • Wash houseplants on both sides of leaves.
  • Change the HVAC filters.
  • Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air vents.
  • Fire restoration requires specialized training, and these steps illustrate our fire restoration process.
  • Call SERVPRO
