Inspecting the Interior Surfaces

5/5/2022 (Permalink)

The first step to cleaning the interior surfaces of your home after a fire is an inspection. Remove debris and trash as well as undamaged items that you want to keep. That should give you a clear view of the walls, ceiling, and floors to determine the extent of the damage.

You may need to remove standing water or use a large shop vacuum to eliminate loose soot and other debris. The cleaning process should start after you have a dry surface that is free of loose particles and burnt items.

If you see mold or other signs of serious water damage caused by the water used to put out the fire, you should contact our team for help. You want to restore your home to a healthy environment that is free of mold and ash.
