After a fire damage in your home or business, there are a few things you should do and should not do prior to our SERVPRO team arrival.  Smoke damage can also cause a lot of damage in and around the affected areas.  One of the things you should do, is to limit movement in the affected areas of the home or business.  Soot and particles can become embedded into the carpet and upholstery.  This includes touching with your un-gloved hands.  If you absolutely need to enter the affected area, place some old linens on carpet traffic areas.  Also if your electricity is off, completely empty your freezer and refrigerator and leave doors open to prevent bad odor and possible biohazards.  

You should never attempt to dry wet areas with any air movement as this will cause soot and particles to become air born.  You should not attempt to shampoo affected upholstery or carpet without the proper chemicals, this could set in the smoke odor.  

If you need fire cleaning services, call the professionals!  SERVPRO of Lake Havasu City/Bullhead City/Kingman are here to help!
