Fire can have a devastating effect on your property and its contents. However, not only does the extreme heat and the flames themselves cause damage, but so does the soot and smoke that results from the fire. Furthermore, how much damage the fire does depends upon the type of fire because some fires burn faster than others and some even burn hotter.

Quick burning fires tend to occur at higher elevations and will move through a structure at a high speed. This is unlike a smoldering fire that occurs at a lower temperature and burns much slower. There may even be very small flames or no flames at all. No matter the type of fire, a lot of damage can be done because of the high volume of smoke that fires produce. The smoke can cause metals to rust, fabric to change color, and the colors of pictures to change.

Tips After The Fire

First, you need a Minneapolis fire damage restoration company to start working on your salvageable belongings and the structure as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the harder the home and its contents will be to restore. This is a call you want to make as soon as you’re able. But before we arrive, make sure you keep the following in mind:

  • If the fire is burning, do not go back into the structure. It is best to wait until the fire department has verified the structure is safe to enter.
  • Wear a respirator and rubber gloves if you need to remove items from the home. Soot is a carcinogen, which means it has cancer causing chemicals within it.
  • If you are going to be without electricity for long periods of time, empty your refrigerator and freezer and leave the doors open. You will want to take an inventory of anything you need to throw away. It is best to throw away everything if there was heavy smoke.
  • If the fire was small, do not attempt to clean it up yourself. Our Minnesota fire damage restoration company possesses special chemicals that remove soot from your walls and ceilings. Rooms that were not affected by fire or smoke should have closed doors so that the smell does not travel to those rooms.
  • Do not try to turn on any electrical equipment until we have cleaned your electronics. There may be internal damage that you can’t see, which could result in a new fire.
  • If pets were present during the fire, make sure they are in a safe place and then follow up with your veterinarian to ensure they have not sustained any burns or lung damage.

Do not try to deal with anything on your own since there may be structural weakness. Plus, dealing with soot and smoke is dangerous.

Cleaning Up After A Fire

One of the first things to do is take your clothing to a dry cleaner or a garment restoration company. You can specify which items of clothing you need back first. Next, you can vacuum carpet if it is dry. You can also clean indoor plants by washing both sides of the leaves and then placing them in a clean environment.

Lastly, change any air filters in your home so that you can trap any particles that are in the air. As for any remaining tasks that need to be done, you can leave that for us because we have the right tools,  chemicals, and expertise to restore your home and make it livable again.
