Fire and Smoke Damage in Barnstable: Don't Go It Alone
A common mindset people have when their home suffers from smoke or fire damage is to immediately and hastily resolve the situation themselves. It’s completely understandable why an affected homeowner would want to do this, but trying to fix the situation without the proper knowledge and expertise could set the damage and make it harder to get rid of. Here are some things to avoid when attempting smoke removal:
- Limit movement within your house to lessen the spread of soot
- Don’t wash any painted surfaces
- Don’t shampoo any carpets or upholstery
- Don’t clean any electronics
- Don’t bring clothing effected by smoke to the dry cleaners: this will likely make your clothes permanently smell like smoke
