When an emergency happens, most people act immediately to try and minimize the amount of damage, which is understandable. Unfortunately, many people make the wrong choices and end up costing themselves and causing more damage than was originally there. After any emergency, your home should be inspected by a professional before making any restorations.

Fire and Smoke Damage:

  • Inspect items carefully before utilizing them again: dishes, utensils, clothing, furniture, upholstery, and carpet
  • Prop open your doors to help with air circulation
  • Call a professional company such as SERVPRO of Malibu/Pacific Palisades/Topanga/Brentwood to come board and tarp up your damaged windows, doors, or roofs.
  • DO NOT turn on any electrical appliances before having them inspected
  • DO NOT wipe or try to clean any fire damage off walls, or ceilings
  • Be care where you walk. It can initially be difficult to determine how much damage was done.

Water Damage:

  • Open all furniture drawers, closet doors, and pieces of luggage to help speed up the drying process
  • Remove valuable documents, books, and electronics to a dry space
  • DO NOT walk into any rooms with standing water if the electricity is still on
  • DO NOT use a regular household vacuum to try and suck up water

Although these tips can help alleviate initial problems, future damage can happen if you only stick to temporary fixes.
