1/7/2019 (Permalink)

  • Limit movement in the area to prevent further damage.
  • Keep hands clean. Soot on hands can further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.
  • Clearly mark the area with caution signs and safety tape.
  • If area is safe, list vital contents for emergency restoration/priority service. 
  • Be sure your staff wears proper personal protection equipment. 
  • Place dry, colorfast towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery and carpet traffic areas. 
  • Wash off both sides of leaves on indoor plants.
  • Change HVAC filters and tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers to stop particles of soot from getting in or out of the HVAC system. 
  • Do not attempt to wash walls or painted surfaces without first contacting your SERVPRO Professional. 
  • Do not attempt to shampoo carpet or upholstered furniture without first contacting your local SERVPRO Professional. 
  • Do not attempt to clean any electrical appliances, computers, television, radios, etc., that may have been close to fire, heat or water without first contacting an authorized repair service.
