1/5/2022 (Permalink)

Starting the new year right is challenging when a fire throws its weight around your Nashville property. It conjures up numerous painful memories that you want to dispel as soon as it appears. If the unthinkable occurs this New Year, you will need expert help to get your life back to normal. Below, we have listed the top 5 things you should do immediately after fire damage while waiting for the professionals and the top 5 do-not-dos, so you have a good idea of what to keep an eye out for and what to avoid

What To Do After A Fire To Your Nashville Property? 

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into upholstery and carpets. 
  • Change the HVAC filter. 
  • Tape double layers of cheesecloth over air registers. 
  • Prop doors open and empty freezers if electricity is off. 
  • To reduce further soiling walls, woodwork, and upholstery, keep hands clean and place clean towels or old linens in major traffic areas in your Nashville home or business. 

What NOT To Do After A Fire To Your Nashville Property? 

  • The wiring may be damaged post-fire damage, so it’s imperative that you DO NOT turn on any ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet. 
  • DO NOT attempt to wash painted walls and surfaces or shampoo carpets and upholstery- leave the heavy-duty cleaning to the professionals!
  • DO NOT use any food or beverages that have been near fire, heat, or water without reaching out to a certified repair service. 
  • DO NOT send garments to an ordinary dry cleaner because smoke odor may result from improper cleaning. 
  • DO NOT clean any electrical appliances that may have been close to fire, water or heat without contacting the right people. 

After any fire damage scenario, your primary concern should be safety first! You also have to remember not to carry wet materials as they can be heavier than they look.
