An asbestos abatement company like Clean and Restore, will properly test for the toxic material, follow strict regulations and processes, and use the right abatement removal equipment to keep you and your family safe from exposure.
What to do when FIRE, SOOT or SMOKE damages your home
If there was a fire, follow the instructions of the fire marshal. Be sure all family members, especially children, are in a safe area.
Stay out of areas where the structure has been damaged. There are many safety hazards that need to be addressed.
Soot and smoke damage
Don't touch walls, as fingerprints cannot be cleaned.
Don't try to clean walls with household detergents. The soot and smoke will only smear.
If practical, clean countertops with dishwashing detergent. Wash dishes that are contaminated.
In heavy soot and smoke situations, remove clothes from steel hangers and put in boxes for storage or to be cleaned. Do not put clothes in plastic bags if there is a strong odor.
Wipe chrome and marble items with dishwashing detergent. Coat expensive brass, chrome and silverware with petroleum jelly. (This will protect these items from the acid in the smoke.)
