What To Do Until Help Arrives: DO:

  • Limit movement in the facility to prevent soot particles from spreading and additional damage from occurring.
  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs and high traffic areas.
  • Coat chrome faucets, trim and appliances with petroleum jelly or oil.
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between office furniture legs and wet carpet.


  • Wash any walls or painted surfaces.  
  • Shampoo carpet or upholstery.
