Smoke / Fire Damage

Smoke / Fire Damage

No matter how prepared you are, you can’t control everything. Especially when it comes to weather, incidents, or accidents that lead to fires in your home, your reaction is just as important as prevention. Even a small fire can leave lasting damage. Large fires nearby can infect part or all of your house with smoke and leave damage and smoky odors for a long time to come.

If left alone, fire and smoke damage can worsen over time. It is imperative that you get your home repaired as soon as possible after the initial event. You need qualified and experienced people to come in, evaluate the situation, and repair it as safely and efficiently as possible. If you’re in Redwood Falls, MN, A1 Cleaning can help with any smoke and fire damage at your house or business.

Next time you have a smoke or fire in or near your home, what should you do?

What You Can Do to Minimize Smoke and Fire Damage

  • If you decide to check the damaged areas of your house or business on your own, make sure to wear personal protective gear, and be very careful of damaged floors or unstable areas.
  • Take lots of photos so that you can keep track of what will need to be replaced by insurance.
  • Ventilate the damaged areas as much as possible.
  • Secure all of your important documents so that you can find them and so that they don’t succumb to any further damage.
  • Clean out your pantry, fridge, and freezers, especially of perishable items. If you need to leave your house while it’s repaired, you can take the food with you. You don’t want to come back later to a fridge full of spoiled perishables.

The most important thing you can do is to get a professional to come out as soon as possible to start the cleaning and repair process. Time is of the essence when dealing with smoke and fire damage. A1 Cleaning’s 24-hour emergency service professionals can visit your home or business immediately so that they can evaluate the damage and save any sensitive items before it’s too late. We can also schedule regular maintenance or check-ups on ongoing fire and smoke damage renovations.
