Caring for Your Belongings Before We Arrive

In the immediate aftermath of a fire, we highly recommend that you try not to do too much with your belongings before we arrive. If you notice any treasured possessions that have been unaffected by the fire or soot damage, you can place them in a bag or purse.

However, don’t try to clean any of your belongings without professional assistance. We use different cleaning methods with different items to ensure that every item is handled with care. It’s also essential that you don’t attempt to clean any electrical appliances. Doing so can be dangerous when the damage has been caused by a fire. If you believe that you will need to move out while these restoration services take place, we will help you get together any undamaged items that you may want to take with you once we arrive.

Actions to Avoid After a Fire

There are several things that you want to avoid doing after a fire. Don’t try to wash the walls or floors of your home until we arrive. Because of the issues with eradicating smoke and soot damage, attempting to clean these surfaces may only worsen the problem and cause the soot to become more embedded in the surfaces. You’ll also want to avoid consuming any foods or beverages that were stored nearby the fire.

If your ceiling has been damaged by the fire, don’t attempt to turn any lights or ceiling fans on. You also don’t want to send your clothes to a standard dry cleaner since they may not know how to clean items that have been damaged by soot and smoke. Call us now at 609-285-3984 to schedule a free fire & smoke damage restoration quote for your New Jersey home.
