What Causes Fire Damage?
Health and Safety Risks of Fire Damage
There are several risks associated with a fire of any size. Even if the fire wasn’t large enough to cause noticeable damage to your property, heat, smoke, and soot can lead to invisible issues that can be detrimental to your health and safety.
After a fire, smoke and soot inhalation is the biggest threat to your health. Fine particles of smoke and toxic chemicals can enter your airway, causing respiratory problems and lung damage. Attempting to remediate soot and smoke damage yourself can kick up airborne particles, leading to further health risks.
To protect yourself and your family in the aftermath of a fire, call Restoration Partners. We will remove soot and smoke from your home after a fire, including carefully cleaning your furniture, carpets, and walls and inspecting your home’s wiring and HVAC systems for internal damage.
What to Do After a Fire
Immediately After a Fire Emergency
- Ask the fire crew lead or chief about the safety of your building and a timeline for re-entering your building.
- The fire department may have turned off your utilities. Check to be sure they are disconnected before going into the building. Don’t try to re-connect your utilities yourself - it’s best to have a professional look for leaks before resuming utilities.
- Don’t light a match, smoke on the property, or use electrical equipment or appliances until they have been properly inspected.
- Stay aware of electrical shock hazards, such as standing water and exposed wiring. Be mindful about damage inside walls that might not be visible.
- People with allergies and respiratory problems should stay out of the building until after any needed clean-up is finished.
- If you have a fireproof safe or strongbox that survived the fire, do not open the safe or box for several hours, to make sure the air inside has cooled.
Steps You Can Take After A Fire Emergency
Once it’s safe to enter your home or business, you can consider these steps in order to prevent further damage until we arrive:
- Open windows to get fresh air moving.
- Rub petroleum jelly or other oil on metal surfaces to stop or reduce the oxidation of the metal surfaces.
- Gently wipe down bath fixtures, counter-tops, and appliances with a household cleaner as soon as reasonable after a fire, as smoke residue may stain these fixtures.
- Brush smoke particulate off of draperies and furnishings.
- Please don’t try to wash walls, ceilings, or any porous surfaces.
- Throw away any food or canned goods exposed to excessive heat.
- Remove and/or deodorize clothing using proper smoke damage cleaning - note that improper smoke cleaning may embed set smoke odor permanently into your fabrics
