Things not to do after Fire Damage

1/4/2019 (Permalink)

If you experience fire or smoke damage in your home, here are some things that you should NOT do while waiting for your remediation team to arrive.

Don't:

  • Attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces without first contacting SERVPRO of Western Lake County
  • Attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first consulting SERVPRO of Western Lake County
  • Attempt to clean any electrical appliances (TV sets, radios, etc.) that may have been close to fire, heat, or water without first consulting an authorized repair service.
  • Consume any food or beverages that may have been stored close to fire, heat, or water (they may be contaminated).
  • Turn on ceiling fixtures if ceiling is wet. Wiring may be wet or damaged and cause electrical shock, and air movement may create a secondary damage.
  • Send garments to dry cleaner. Improper cleaning may set in smoke odor.

SERVPRO of Western Lake County has a group of certified and trained professionals that will make your home look “Like it never even happened.”
