Well, the first thing you need to do is make sure the area is safe or the fire has been extinguished completely before you move on to the next step. You don’t want the fire to re-spark and to burn the rest of your house down.
The next thing to do is to understand that the soot and smoke damage usually travels much farther than just the area the fire took place in. A lot of times, customers will find soot and ashes up the stairs or around the corner from where they thought just a minor fire had happened. So, it’s really good to make sure that you inspect your entire home and its entirety to make sure that you are not leaving any soot or smoke damage behind.
A lot of times, your personal items that aren’t completely burnt or damaged, but they do smell. They do have soot damage on them. They need to be cleaned professionally. Wipe down the walls, the ceilings, the floors on your kitchen or wherever this fire may have taken place. It needs to be cleaned with a chemical that will remove the soot and that will remove the smell.
You also want to set up air filtration system during this process as you can be kicking up a lot of soot and smoke remnants. You don’t want it to spread throughout the rest of your home.”
