Fire and Smoke Damage
Following fire and smoke damage in a home it may be necessary to remove sensitive items, i.e. antiques, electrical goods etc. to an atmospherically controlled environment to prevent further deterioration. Please let our technician and /or the loss adjuster know about valuable items as soon as possible. Heat pressure forces smoke into unsealed surfaces. Therefore, heavily smoked logged areas should be chemically cleaned and sealed prior to redecorating.
Do not use items that have been smoke damaged until they have been assessed, cleaned, and checked for safety. This includes soft furnishings and items of clothing.
Do not switch electrical items on to ''see if they work'' you may seriously endanger yourself! These items should be tested by a qualified electrician before reconnecting them to the power supply.
