Fire Damage Safety Tips – While Waiting for Help to Arrive

After any fire damage situation, your safety should be the primary focus.

  • Stay in the house only if it safe
  • Electrical and "slip and fall" hazards are some of the most prevalent concerns
  • Only do activities that are safe for you to perform
  • Wet materials can be heavy

What To Do After A Fire

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets
  • Keep hands clean so as not to further soil upholstery, walls, and woodwork
  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery, and carpet traffic areas
  • If the electricity is off, empty the freezer and refrigerator and prop the doors open
  • Clean and protect chrome with a light coating of petroleum jelly or oil
  • Wash houseplants on both sides of leaves
  • Change the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) filter
  • Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers
