What not to do
  • Do not touch anything with your bare hands. Oil from your hands can permeate upholstery, walls and woodwork, causing additional damage.

  • Do not wash walls. Incorrect cleaning could compound the soot residue.

  • Do not attempt to clean carpets or upholstered furniture.

  • Do not use electrical appliances until having them checked.

  • Do not use ceiling fixtures if the ceiling is wet.

Seeing your home and precious possessions consumed by fire can be one of the most severe losses that a homeowner can experience. After such a devastating loss, reassurance comes from having clear guidance and support in salvaging as much as possible from fire and smoke damage.

    FIRE DAMAGE GOES BEYOND BURNING ITEMS

  • Ash and smoke can continue to cause damage and corrosion to materials left behind.

  • Odours from smoke will stay in a room or a home long after the fire and continue to cause problems if they are not removed.

  • In a few minutes, walls and other surfaces can become discolored.

  • In a few hours, finishes on kitchen appliances turn yellow.

  • Smoke causes etching in glass after just a short time, and smoke will tarnish metal quickly.

COMMON TYPES OF FIRES

Protein Fire: Food from the oven or stove has burned, leaving strong, burned-food odours and smoke residue on contents and surfaces.

Complex Fire: Multiple natural and synthetic items inside your home

 

have burned, causing black smoke residue on contents and surfaces and synthetic smoke odors. Here, emergency corrosion mitigation is needed to protect at-risk surfaces.

Natural Fire: Trees, shrubs and bushes have burned, and smoke has penetrated the structure from outside, so smoke residue and odour are present.

Furnace Malfunction: Heating appliances like oil-fired furnaces have malfunctioned and caused smoke to be distributed throughout the property.
