Emergency Tips: Fire & Smoke Damage

After any type of fire or smoke situation, make safety your first priority

  • Only stay in the house if it is safe. Do not try to clean-up if it is not safe to do so. Contact PLM Restoration and let the professionals handle it.
  • Do not eat, drink, or breathe in anything that has been near the fire’s flames, smoke, soot, or water used to put the fire out.
  • Limit movement in the home and keep hands clean so as not to further soil upholstery, walls and woodwork.
  • Don’t use television or other electrical appliances.

Some activities you can perform if it is safe:

  • Change HVAC filter
  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, upholstery, and carpets
  • If electricity is off, empty freezer and refrigerator and keep doors open
  • Clean and protect chrome with light coating of petroleum jelly or oil
  • Collect and clean valuables and store in a safe place
