11/1/2019 (Permalink)

The first few days after a fire can make the difference between restoring versus replacing your property and personal belongings. The professionals at SERVPRO of Vacaville can help with smoke and soot removal, document restoration and inventory of your home’s contents.

Here are some things you can do to minimize additional damage to your home after a fire occurs:

  • Limit movement in your home to prevent soot particles from spreading
  • Place clean towels on rugs and high traffic areas and upholstery
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpet

Be sure NOT to:

  • Wash any walls or painted surfaces
  • Shampoo carpet or upholstery
  • Clean any electrical equipment
  • Send clothing to a dry cleaner, since improper cleaning may set smoke odor into the fabric

If you do experience a fire in your home, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Vacaville. We will work to ensure your property, belongings and memories are restored back to preloss condition whenever possible, and make it “Like it never even happened.”
