What To Do After A Fire

You have had a fire in your home or business, time is of the essence, call Stutters Disaster Kleenup right away.

Smoke and soot will settle, creating additional damage to the structure and your contents.  If left for long periods, items can become unsalvageable due to pitting and etching caused by chemical reactions of the smoke and soot.

Do NOT enter your home or business until it has been inspected and approved for re-entry by a professional.

Do NOT touch things as the oils from your bare hands can cause additional damage.

Do NOT wash the walls.  Incorrect cleaning can compound the soot residue.  Allow the professionals at Stutters Disaster Kleenup to take care of the cleaning.

Do NOT attempt to upholstery clean or carpet clean, until they have been checked by a professional to ensure that they can be salvaged with cleaning.

Lastly, do NOT eat or drink any foods, as they can be contaminated from smoke residue.

This seems like a lot of things to NOT do after a fire, but this is for your safety, as well as making it easier for our professionals to come in and potentially saving items that would have otherwise been deemed non-restorable.
