The First 48 Hours After a Fire

10/13/2021 (Permalink)

The first 48 hours after a fire can make the difference in restoring versus replacing your damaged property and personal belongings. SERVPRO of Glen Burnie can help prevent fire damage from creating long-term problems for your personal belongings. We provide prompt response with professional services ranging from fire, smoke and soot removal to contents claims inventory and document restoration. Our professionals will help ensure that your belongings and memories are restored to previous conditions when possible.  

Before we arrive on site, here are some actions you can take before help arrives: 

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from spreading  
  • Place clean towels or old linens on rugs, high traffic areas, and upholstery  
  • Coat any chrome trim or faucets with petroleum jelly or oil 
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpet 
  • Do NOT wash any walls, painted surfaces, and carpet 
  • Do NOT clean any electrical equipment 
  • Do NOT send any clothing items to a dry cleaner  

Before you risk any further damage by attempting to clean any damaged items yourself, call our SERVPRO professionals to help make fire damage “Like it never even happened.”
