Until Help Arrives, After A Fire - Part 2
While you wait for your local SERVPRO professionals to arrive, here are a couple more things you should refrain from doing to keep you safe and healthy:
If you find items that may have been stored near the fire or heat, like canned/packaged food or beverages, those items could have been negatively affected by the smoke; this means that it could be likely that they could contain toxins or other undesirables that are deemed unsuitable for consumption.
While you are looking at the food and beverages, check out any electrical appliances in the area that could have been close to any fire, heat, or water. We ask that you REFRAIN from cleaning any of those items, rather, call a reputable repair service to decide what to do and if your things are safe to use.
