Things To Do After a Fire

2/10/2020 (Permalink)

After you have a fire, it is scary, and shocking.  What should you do?  Here is a basic list of things you can do while you wait for some help to arrive.

  • Cover up the carpet in heavy traffic areas with old linens or clean towels. Also, cover up your furniture with old sheets to give added protection.
  • If your electricity is off, be sure to clean out your refrigerator and freezer. Leave the doors open after cleaning to air them out.  You may want to put a box of opened baking soda inside the refrigerator.
  • Cover your chrome fixtures with Vaseline petroleum jelly or oil. The soot can damage your fixtures.
  • If you have plants in your home, both sides of the leaves will need to be washed. Don’t use harsh chemicals.  They could kill your plants.  Plain water is just fine.
  • You will want to change your HVAC filter at least once, maybe more, in the weeks that follow the fire.
  • Tape double layers of cheesecloth over the air registers.  

If you follow these tips of things to do after a fire, it will help you get a head start on the cleanup.  Please call SERVPRO OF OZAUKEE COUNTY if we can help you with the cleanup.  We are here 24/7.  Call 262-242-8888.

Things Not to do After a Fire

2/10/2020 (Permalink)

There are several things that you should not do after a house fire.  Once the fire is out and you are back in your house, be careful not to do the following things.

  • Don’t walk through the soot or spread it around. It can get embedded into carpets and upholstery making it more difficult to clean.
  • Try not to touch anything. You don’t want to spread the soot around.
  • Don’t start washing your walls or painted surfaces. There is a right way to accomplish this without creating more problems.
  • Don’t shampoo your carpet or upholstery. Great care must be given when cleaning soot. Sometimes you have to clean carpets or furniture two or three times.
  • Don’t attempt to clean any electrical appliances that may have been near the fire, heat or water without consulting an authorized repair service.
  • Don’t use canned or packaged food or beverages that were stored near the fire, heat or water. And never eat anything from an open package.
  • Don’t turn the ceiling fans or lights on if the ceiling is wet. The wiring may have been damaged.   
  • Don’t send your clothes to an ordinary dry cleaner. Improper cleaning may set the smoke odor into the clothes.

A Storm is Coming

2/6/2020 (Permalink)

The TV Weather Forecasters are pretty good at predicting stormy weather.  Pay attention to the areas where the storm is going to hit and take all the normal precautions.  

When the storm is really big and there is a chance that you may have to evacuate, make sure that you have your cell phone charged up and your cell phone charger with you.  You should also have a contact person who can receive phone calls from you and distribute your important information to others who may need it.  The contact person should be someone who is not in the affected area. 

If you don't have to evacuate, make sure that all your windows and doors are closed properly.  You may want to get some sand bags and put them in places that will keep the rain from coming in. If your home has a sump pump, check it to make sure that it is working and is plugged in.   

You might want to make up an emergency bag with equipment like flash lights and batteries.  Make sure that each person in the house has a flashlight and that there are lots of batteries. You should make sure that you have enough water for a couple of days for you and your family.  You may need water to drink, cook, or even bathe.  If you have prescription drugs that are running low, check with your pharmacy to see if they will let you refill them ahead of the storm.  

The best thing you can do is to be prepared.  If you need help after the storm, call SERVPRO of Ozaukee County at 262-242-8888 and we will help you dry out your structure.
