Steps to take for fire cleanup
Before you start cleaning out your home there are some safety measures you need to take:
- Wait for a building inspection: If the fire damage was extensive, officials will instruct you on when you are able to safely enter the house.
- Contact an insurance company: Your insurance provider will instruct you on how to collect evidence of the damage for your claim. You may be asked not to touch anything inside your home for the time being.
- Essential repairs: Ask your insurance provider whether any immediate action needs to be taken, such as ventilating your home or urgent electrical repairs.
After you’ve got the go-ahead from your insurance provider and home inspector that it’s safe to enter your home, it’s up to you to consider any additional steps needed to clean up your home. If you don’t have the time or ability to complete this task alone, there are many fire cleanup services to help you out. Here are some steps to follow when cleaning your home after a fire:
- Call a junk removal company: If the fire damage was extensive, there will be tons of trash to get rid of. You may want to consider either a dumpster rental or calling a junk removal company such as 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. If you have any damaged items you need removed, our Truck Team Members can haul them away right from where they are located. We are in your neighborhood and always here to help.
- Self protection: It is extremely important to protect yourself and your loved ones from toxins. Be sure to open windows and doors to allow for proper ventilation and wear appropriate protective gear if you choose to do clean up work yourself.
- Arrange for restoration work: There are some mandatory tasks that require a professional, such as drying out floors and replacing damaged flooring to prevent mold growth.
- Clean up soot: Make sure you are using a suitable cleaner for soot. Cabinetry and walls in particular need to be cleaned as much as possible. You should also clean up any fire extinguisher residue.
- Clean up house structure: This includes all walls and ceilings that were affected by the fire. If there is minor damage, hot water and beach should suffice. The mixture should be used on any interior surfaces to clean and help prevent mildew growth.
- Repaint damaged surfaces: Make sure to only proceed with this step once all surfaces have completely dried. If the fire damage is more severe and interior surfaces have been completely soaked with water, it is best to contact a restoration professional to help preserve the structural integrity of your home.
