What You Should Do Immediately After a Fire at Your Property
The actions you take within the first 24 hours after fire damage can be a deciding factor on whether your property and belongings can be restored or if replacement would be necessary. You can count on SERVPRO of Santa Cruz to provide a fast response and begin mitigation action quickly. Our technicians are highly trained in services ranging from fire, smoke and soot removals as well as board-ups, deodorization, contents inventory and cleaning, and document restoration. Our goal is to bring your property or belongings back to preloss condition whenever possible and help you through a stressful process.
If you have suffered a fire in your home or business, remembering to follow these tips can help to reduce damages:
- Limit activity in the affected rooms to avoid movement of the smoke and soot
- Lay old linens or cardboard on carpeted traffic areas to prevent further soiling and additional soot to travel to unaffected areas
- Do not attempt to wash any walls or painted surfaces; this can result in smearing and further damage. There are specific procedures to be followed to ensure proper removal
- Use paper masks if you must enter into the affected areas to protect your own respiratory health
