It is important to understand the risk to your safety and health even after the fire is out. The soot and dirty water left behind may contain things that could make you sick. Before you begin any cleanup or repairs please check with the fire department or a restoration company to determine what potential safety hazards are present in your situation.

24-hours is the critical turning point for restoration!

When safe, rescue (valuables, art, collectables etc.).
Separate into two categories and begin the restoration process

  1. Undamaged in good condition that can be stored.
  2. Damaged items that must be restored (begin to dry and clean).

  • Remove brass & copper (immediately clean to avoid etching).
  • Remove firearms (immediately dry & oil to avoid rust & pitting).
  • Get the air moving and remove standing water.
  • Dry wet items quickly to avoid mold and mildew.
  • Place foil under furniture legs and remove rugs & carpet.
  • Locate identification, driver’s license, financial records, insurance policies, birth certificates, passports, medical records, titles & deeds, tax information, etc.
  • Collect Eyeglasses, hearing aids, prosthetic devices etc.
  • Locate valuables as credit cards, checkbooks, money & jewelry.
  • Keep receipts from any purchases you make after the fire as you may recover some or all of those expenses from your insurance company.
  • Contact your insurance company to inform them of the fire to start the insurance claim process. 
  • Professionally board the building structure to avoid vandalism & protect the inside contents from weather elements. 
  • Take photos from every angle possible inside and outside to use later in identifying damaged personal contents
