Don’t Overlook These 6 Items After a Fire

After assessing the damage caused to your home and possessions due to a fire, you should have a fire damage cleanup service in as soon as possible to inspect the following items:

  • Dishes and utensils
  • Clothing
  • Upholstery
  • Carpets
  • Food
  • Furniture

Flames tend to cause the most visible damage, but the invisible smoke and dark, black dust called soot are what cause serious health hazards in your home. Soot is made when wood or oil-based substances are burned and inhalation alone can cause lung deficiencies and could potentially lead to death. If it contaminates any items in your home, a fire damage restoration service must assess your home or office to see if restoration is an option.
