In the event of fire or smoke damage, stay calm!! Here are some tips to help with the situation.

  • Inventory contents.
  • Open all windows.
  • Empty freezer and refrigerator completely if electricity is off. Prop open the doors.
  • Remove pets (especially birds) to clean environments.
  • DO NOT attempt to wipe or wash the walls, ceilings, or other absorbent surfaces.
  • DO NOT use exposed food goods or canned goods that have been subject to excessive heat.
  • DO NOT use upholstered furniture if it can be avoided.
  • DO NOT use TVs, stereos, or any other electrical appliances until cleaned or checked.
  • DO NOT send smoked garments to an ordinary dry cleaner, because improper cleaning may set the smoke odor.
  • DO NOT turn on your heating and air conditioning system if it is not currently on.
