Tips for a Fire Loss
- IF POSSIBLE, turn off power to the home or building
- If the temperature is above 50 degrees and your home is secure, air out your home by opening windows and doors to reduce smoke odor.
- If feasible, clean your Formica, chrome, porcelain and aluminum fixtures with a cloth to prevent permanent tarnishing or etching.
- Remove important documents to a safe place to eliminate the possibility of damage by loose soot in the air.
AVOID the Following:
- Leave the building or go to an area that was not affected by the fire.
- Do not use any electrical appliances before having them checked.
- Do not use ceiling fixtures such as lights or fans, if the ceiling is wet.
- Stay away from areas that are wet and may still have electricity
Because of the dangerous and often-time volatile chemicals that may be present after a fire, as well as the compromised electrical system and presence of water, it is critical to have a trained professional on-hand as soon as possible.
