After a fire, you want to get back to normal. There are some things you can do, but there are many things you should not do until the home has been inspected and repaired. Here is a list of things you should avoid:

Do Not Eat Food That Was in the Home – You should always avoid food that was in your home during the fire. It may seem like it is okay, but it is likely that soot, smoke, and other contaminants that were in the air got into your food. It is vital that you throw away any food in the kitchen to ensure that no one eats it.

Do Not Try to Clean – Cleaning up a home after a fire is a job for the professionals. Soot, toxic chemicals, and other harmful irritants are in the air and can cause health problems if you do not sort it out. Fire damage remediation specialists have the tools necessary to approach this damage.

Do Not Use Appliances and Electronics – It does not matter if your electricity seems to be working, it is essential that you do not touch any electronic items until the system has been inspected by a professional.
