Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

The Dos and Donts of Fire Safety

4/9/2018 (Permalink)

If the damage is done from a fire, make sure to move as little as possible. Movement can make soot absorb into your upholstery and furniture.

If fire has already struck your home, we are here to help you. If the damage is done from a fire, we would like to suggest to you a few things that make things easier for you until we arrive.


  • Keep movement in the home to a minimum. Constant moving will embed soot particles into carpet and upholstery
  • Wash any soot from chrome appliances including faucets and any trim. Then lightly coat these surfaces with a small amount of lubricant.
  • Wash both sides of leaves on all house plants. They most likely have ash on them.


  • Attempt to wash any walls without contacting a SERVPRO expert
  • Attempt to clean or shampoo a carpet until professional help arrives
  • Eat any food or beverages that may have been stored near fire, heat or water – they may be contaminated
