While You Wait For Help After A Fire...

3/22/2021 (Permalink)

While your home or business may be severely affected by fire damage, focus on the safety and well-being of people first.  Determine if it is at all safe to stay inside, or if evacuation is necessary.  Treat any injuries with the proper remedies at this time.

After the fire department has extinguished the flames, you will be allowed back in the building or home.  It won’t be pretty, so you will be tempted to start the cleaning process. But there is the potential to make the damage worse by using improper cleaning methods.  You need to call a professional fire remediation company like SERVPRO or Norwalk/Wilton to properly clean the affected areas.  

Until help arrives, try to limit how much you move around in the house, so you don’t agitate soot particles that could become lodged in furniture and carpets.  Make sure that you are not tracking soot through the building, either with shoes or bare feet.  You can place old sheets or towels on top to walk around.  You should not attempt to wash any surfaces, as this may just spread the soot and smoke damage, and make it harder for the professionals to remove.

We have the skilled technicians and specialized equipment needed for your fire damage remediation needs.  That’s why SERVPRO of Norwalk/Wilton should be your first call. Contact us at 203.324.1642 for assistance.
