The first 48 hours after a fire damage can make the difference between restoring versus replacing your property and personal belongings. The professionals at SERVPRO of Vacaville can help prevent fire damage from creating long-term problems.

Here's just a few of the things we can help you with after a fire:

  • Smoke and soot removal
  • Inventory your home's contents
  • Document restoration

There are also steps you can take to minimize additional damage to your home after a fire occurs:

  • Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from spreading
  • Place clean towels on rugs and high traffic areas and upholstery
  • Place aluminum foil or wood blocks between furniture legs and wet carpet

DO NOT:

  • Wash any walls or painted surfaces
  • Shampoo carpet or upholstery
  • Clean any electrical equipment
  • Send clothing to a dry cleaner since improper cleaning may set smoke odor into the fabric

If you do experience a fire in your home, call the professionals at SERVPRO of Vacaville. We will work to ensure your property, belongings and memories are restored back to preloss condition whenever possible.
