Was your home affected by a fire? Read this!
It is no secret that house fires and everything that comes from these disasters are nothing short than devastating. While flames fill the home, smoke damage ensues deep within the fibers of everything within, causing most of the affected items to be destroyed and perishable.
Naturally, it is within our instincts to want to salvage as much as we can from wreckages such as these; if you have been affected by a house fire and wish to sort through the aftermath — and if your local fire department deems it safe to enter — it is important that you keep from furthering damages to your home, or your health.
Limit movement in the home to prevent soot particles from being embedded into your upholstery and carpet. You should also work to keep your hands clean, as difficult as it may be, to keep soot off of your persons. Both of these precautions will prevent other locations of your home from being soiled by soot or other detrimental smoke particles.
