What to Do Following a Fire
If you fall victim to a fire at your residential or commercial property, you should make two phone calls following contact with your fire department or 911. After you ensure your safety and that of your building’s occupants by evacuating the premises and leaving the fire extinguishing efforts to first responders, you should contact your insurance provider. Most insurance companies demand property owners report any losses and damages as soon as reasonably possible. By alerting your provider early, you protect yourself throughout the claims process. Your next call should be to a trusted fire damage restoration company, like DKI. We have fire damage cleanup experts stationed throughout the country who are ready to assist at a moment’s notice. Within two hours of your call, we will be on-site to begin assessing all damages and to prepare an estimate of our comprehensive restoration plan. Following your approval of our services, our team will begin cleaning and restoration efforts promptly.
What Not to Do Following a Fire at Your Home or Office
While you may want to begin cleaning and restoring normalcy to your place as soon as the last flame is extinguished, certain efforts may be counterproductive to fire damage restoration. It may still be unsafe to enter your home or office immediately following a fire, and lingering smoke can cause significant health problems if you are not careful. Avoid the following actions immediately after a fire:
- Wiping or washing surfaces – Leave this to the restoration professionals. Though you may want to clean walls, floors, and counters, touching these areas without the proper gear can be harmful. Additionally, smoldering ashes can spread and make fire cleanup efforts more difficult.
- Eating foods exposed to fire and smoke – Any consumables, including canned goods and beverages, remaining after fire damage should be discarded.
- Using appliances – Televisions, refrigerators, air conditioners, and more should be professionally inspected after being exposed to fire, heat, or water.
- Cleaning your clothes – DKI can assist with specialized cleaning efforts for your clothes. Conventional methods may cause stains and odors to set.
