Fire Restoration Information

What to do first

Even small fires can cause severe damage and be extremely costly. That is why it is wise to contact the appropriate individuals to help you. If you have insurance, contact your insurance agent for suggestions and advice. If you rent your dwelling, the owner should be notified as soon as possible so that you can both assess the damage.

Preventing fire damage

Don't attempt to clean any household textiles unless you know the proper procedures, because you can cause additional damage. Whether you hire a professional or do the work yourself, you can minimize further damage by following these guidelines.

  • Do not touch or attempt to clean carpets, upholstered furniture, draperies or other household textile items. Those cleaning actions will only smear soot into the fabric, making cleaning more difficult.
  • Dry wet carpets, upholstered furniture, draperies and clothing as soon as possible to prevent mold and mildew. Hang clothing outside on a clothesline, prop up wet upholstery cushions for even drying, and use fans and dehumidifiers to dry carpets and draperies.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpeting to prevent rust stains.
  • Open windows for ventilation.
  • Change the furnace filter (if operating) at least once a day until the filter shows no soot. This will help keep particles from being distributed into the air.
  • Cover clean items with plastic while further repairs are being carried out in the dwelling to prevent re-soiling.
