Tips Until Help

Quick tips if you are in the middle of a loss:

  • If the temperature is above 60 degrees, air out the house to reduce smoke odor.
  • Clean laminate surfaces as well as chrome, porcelain and aluminum fixtures to prevent permanent tarnishing or etching.
  • Change the air filter on your furnace if it uses forced hot air.
  • Tape damp cheesecloth over returns and supply registers to capture loose soot in the air.
  • Discard any open food packages.
  • If the electricity is off, clean out the refrigerator and leave doors propped open.
  • Send clothing with heavy smoke damage to a qualified restoration dry cleaner.

What not to do

  • Do not touch anything with your bare hands. Oil from your hands can permeate upholstery, walls, and woodwork, causing additional damage.
  • Do not wash the walls. Incorrect cleaning could compound the soot residue.
  • Do not attempt to clean carpets or upholstered furniture.
  • Do not use electrical appliances until having them checked.
  • Do not use ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.

Testimonials

I had a fire at my home. ServiceMaster by Timeless came to my home and took care of everything! They brought in an EXPERT fire estimator who wrote the entire estimate for us. SM then negotiated with the insurance company for us and didn’t charge us any extra money. My wife and I were so relieved. After they settled they claim they completely rebuilt our home and 5 months later we were back home !!!! I thought it was too good to be true but they did it. Thank You!

I had a Very good experience with Timeless. They are very professional, the crew showed up on time and every day (which rarely happens with other companies). The owner Bruce assured me that he would give me updates on the progress and did continually throughout the project. The work that was done came out beautiful and I was very satisfied with the finished product. I would highly recommend Timeless Restoration.

SMOKE DAMAGE & SOOT REMOVAL SERVICES

Even after a fire has been extinguished, damage to your home and belongings continues. That’s why it’s so important to prevent further damage by calling in a professional who knows the right way to deal with soot, smoke, and odor.

Step one: Call your insurance company and the pros at ServiceMaster Restore.

The residue left behind after a fire is a biohazard and can cause health problems if it is not taken care of correctly and thoroughly. We'll quickly assess the damage to find out the costs for fire restoration—and examine if there's any additional damage from water or other factors. Once the amount of damage is determined, we'll come up with an estimate for the cleaning and restoration.

HOW MORE THAN JUST FIRE CAN DAMAGE YOUR HOME

  • In just a few minutes, smoke can discolor the walls.
  • Within a few hours, finishes on kitchen appliances can discolor.
  • Smoke causes etching in glass after just a short time.
  • Smoke will tarnish metal quickly.
  • Ash and smoke can continue to cause damage and corrosion to materials left behind.

TO ENSURE SUPERIOR REMOVAL OF SOOT, SMOKE AND ODOR DAMAGE, WE:

  • Clean the ash residue that builds up on surfaces before it spreads
  • Neutralize the odors to keep them from returning
  • Remove the troubling reminders of soot, odor and stains from at-risk items such as brass, aluminum, chrome, marble, tile, porcelain, as well as fabrics, upholstery & carpets
  • Deodorize the carpets & curtains before they are cleaned
  • Use special chemicals that break up the molecules in the smoke to get rid of the odors before dry cleaning your clothing

HOW TO HELP PREVENT PUFFBACKS

Although there is no guaranteed way to prevent a puffback, annual inspection and maintenance of your oil burner or furnace can greatly reduce your risk. So be sure to have your oil burner and furnace system cleaned regularly.

QUICK TIPS: WHAT YOU SHOULD OR SHOULDN’T DO AFTER A FIRE TO REDUCE ODORS & SOOT

  • If the temperature is above 60 degrees, air out the house to reduce smoke odor.
  • If it uses forced hot air, change the air filter on the furnace.
  • Tape damp cheesecloth over returns, and supply registers to capture loose soot in the air.
  • Do not touch anything with your bare hands. Oils from hands can permeate upholstery, walls and woodwork, causing additional damage.
  • Do not wash walls. Incorrect cleaning could compound the soot residue.

Warning: Do not attempt to clean up your home after a fire or you may cause more damage.

Is it safe to stay in your home after a fire?

FEMA has published a helpful article, available as a pdf download. You can see the article at this link.

An excerpt from the article is here below

"A fire in your home can cause serious damage. Your home and many of the things in your home may be badly damaged by flames, heat, smoke and water.

You will find things not damaged by the fire may still be ruined by smoke and may be soggy with water used to put out the fire. Anything you want to save or reuse will need to be carefully cleaned.

To fight the fire, firefighters may have broken windows and cut holes in the roof. This slows the fire’s growth and gets rid of dark smoke that makes it hard for firefighters to see. They may have cut holes in your walls to make sure that the fire is completely out and not hidden in the walls.

It is important to understand the risk to your safety and health even after the fire is out. The soot and dirty water left behind may contain things that could make you sick. Be very careful if you go into your home and if you touch any fire-damaged items. "

The article goes on to provide excellent and relevant advice for steps to take after a fire or house fire.

How do you clean soot from the inside of a house after a fire?

We believe most people benefit from professional soot removing services, by trained soot removing experts in fire damage restoration because it's a difficult process.

Should you wish to remove soot yourself, The American Red Cross recommends the following process.

"To remove soot and smoke from walls, furniture and floors, use a mild soap or detergent or mix together 4 to 6 tbsp. tri-sodium phosphate and 1 cup household cleaner or chlorine bleach to every gallon of warm water. Wear rubber gloves. Be sure to rinse surfaces with clear warm water and dry thoroughly."
