“But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.” - 1 Corinthians 15:20-22

Fire Damage Tips

Fire and Smoke Damage

After fire damage, it is natural to want to jump right in and clean the building and contents. Timely action can be a great help, but incorrect action can jeopardize or impede satisfactory restoration.

DO...
  • First, call Arizona Fire & Water Restoration, Inc. for quick professional service.
  • Clean and protect chrome trim on faucets and other brightwork by washing with detergent and applying a coating of Vaseline or oil.
  • Blow off or brush-vacuum loose smoke particles from upholstery, draperies and carpeting.
  • Open windows for ventilation if weather permits.
  • Empty refrigerators and freezers if electricity is shut off, and prop doors open with a rolled towel or newspaper to allow air circulation.
  • Pour antifreeze in toilet bowls, tanks, sink and tub drains to prevent freeze damage if heat is off in winter.
  • Call a plumber to drain and blow out all water lines if heat is off in winter.
  • Remove pets to a clean environment if heavy fire residues are present.
  • Send a sample group of garments for cleaning and deodorization in order to observe the results.
  • Retain a contractor to board up open windows, roofs, or other penetrations in order to prevent additional damage.
DO NOT...
  • Wipe or attempt to wash fire residues from walls, ceilings or other absorbent surfaces.
  • Use carpeting or upholstered furniture impacted by heavy residues or debris.
  • Use food items or canned goods exposed to heat.
  • Turn on computers, TV's, stereos or electrical appliances until they have been cleaned and checked.
