First Steps After Fire Damage in Pittsburgh, PA

July 12th, 2015 · No Comments

So many panicked thoughts fill your head after you experience something as scary as a fire in your home. Most likely, you have questions about what to do next after your family is safe and the firemen have cleared the area. Is it safe enough to go back in my house? How do I know if the smoke has completely cleared? What do I do with my damaged furniture and belongings? These questions and more can be answered with the help of a ServiceMaster Complete Restoration by Stiffey fire damage restoration representative in Pittsburgh, PA.

Here are a few tips our fire damage team has put together for you to consider immediately after your home or building is affected by fire:

  • Scan the area. Look in the rooms of your home to see what has been affected the most by fire and if the smoke seems to have spread throughout your home.
  • Gather clothing that has been affected by fire or smoke. If the items are still useable, they need to be cleaned by a professional dry cleaner before being worn or used.
  • Utilize the power your windows can give you. Open windows can air out your home and get rid of odors. Be sure to only open windows in the affected area to avoid spreading soot and odor throughout the home.
  • Clean out any area that the fire or soot may have touched. If the fire was in the kitchen, throw out open food and containers. If the fire was in the bathroom, throw out toiletries that could have been affected.

If the smoke damage appears widespread, call our fire damage team immediately. We can assess and better tell you if it’s safe to stay in your home or not.
