AFTER a fire
Once the fire is out and the fire department has determined it is safe for you to reenter there are a few things you should do. Following these tips can help you get through the process of getting your home repaired and contents cleaned.
- Contact your insurance agent and get a claim started immediately. Even the smallest fire can cause smoke and soot damage to an entire house
- Limit movement in the house until the damage can be surveyed by a professional. sitting on furniture or walking on carpet with soot on it can cause repairable damage.
- Do not eat or drink anything from the house. Even if items may have been in an area away from the fire they may have contamination on them or in them and it is not worth getting sick.
- Do not remove items from the house. Even if it appears to be clean it is best to have a professional inspect it.
