Emergency Fire Damage Tips
After experiencing a damaging fire, you will need to go through home or business to assess the damage and inventory salvageable items. To keep you safe and minimize further damages, follow these emergency fire damage tips:
- Keep your hands clean.
- Limit movement in the home to prevent further damage.
- Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on carpeted traffic areas to prevent further soiling.
- If the electricity is off, empty your freezer and refrigerator and keep their doors open.
- Wipe soot from chrome on faucets and appliances, then protect it with a light coating of lubricant.
