Fire Damage Tips

Even after the fire is doused and the smoke cleared, time is of the essence. To increase your chances of a complete recovery, call ServiceMaster of Hattiesburg as soon as possible. In the meantime, there are a few things you can do to ensure a more successful restoration.

What to do:

  • Corrosive byproducts from fire and smoke can cause irreversible etching in as few as 72 hours. Call ServiceMaster Action Clean immediately.
  • If the temperature is above 60 degrees, air out your home by opening windows and doors to reduce smoke odor.
  • Clean Formica, chrome, porcelain and aluminum fixtures to prevent permanent tarnishing or etching.
  • Change the air filter on your furnace if it uses forced hot air.
  • Tape damp cheesecloth over important documents to capture loose soot in the air.
  • Discard any open food packages.
  • If the electricity is off, clean out the refrigerator and leave doors propped open.
  • Send clothing with heavy smoke damage to a qualified restoration dry cleaner.

What not to do:

  • Do not touch anything. Oil from your hands can permeate upholstery, walls and woodwork, causing additional damage.
  • Do not wash walls. Incorrect cleaning could compound the soot residue.
  • Do not attempt to clean carpets or upholstered furniture.
  • Do not use electrical appliances until they have been checked.
  • Do not use ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.
