As bad as mold can be in your home, fire is another one of the scariest events that can happen. Even after it’s put out and the scariest part is over, you still have the aftermath. The smoke, the smell, the soot and your damaged property.

  Here are some small tips to prevent any further damage to your property:

-Try to limit any movement in your home to avoid soot particles from being embedded into carpet and furniture

-Try to keep your hands clean; as any soot on your hands can further soil furniture, walls, and woodwork.

-Place dry, un-staining towels on any traffic areas

-If electricity is off, it is best to clean out your refrigerator and freezer to prevent any odor or perished food.

-Do NOT attempt to clean or wash any walls or carpets without consulting a professional to avoid any further damage.
