If the structure is safe to be inhabited after a fire many people want to help and start cleaning walls, furniture, tapestries, clothing, or electronics. Prior to doing this you should check with us as there may be special circumstances or procedures required to properly clean the item. The staff at 24/7 Restoration
will help you with the proper procedure. If you are going to be in the structure it's advisable to limit your contact between affected and non-affected areas as this may cause secondary damages and/or cross contamination. It's advisable to remove or cover rugs and place old towels or sheets in high traffic areas. Don't for get to wash your hands often as soot gets on a lot of things during a fire and can easily be spread via contact. REMEMBER, HVAC systems are a typical place for soot to get into and be spread throughout the structure. If you don't have register covers/filters you can attach a breathable material and secure it to each register with tape.
