When a fire damages your property, not only will you be under extreme, but you’ll also be dealing with the loss of valuables and the damages that have racked up from smoke and fire damages. Unfortunately, even when a fire has been put out, residual damages can still occur due to leftover smoke residue, ash, and soot.

When facing fire damages in Orlando, there are a number of items for you to remember when re-entering your property to either avoid damages or to help reduce damages from smoke and soot. Please see below.
When re-entering a property that has sustained fire damages in Orlando:
- Do not try to clean walls of residue without consulting a professional. Improper cleaning can cause additional damages.
- Do not try to clean upholstered furnishings or carpeting. Improper cleaning can lead to compounding soot residue into fabric fibers, making it extremely difficult to remove.
- Avoid the use of any electrical appliances. They may have been affected by the fire and water and may malfunction or short circuit.
- Avoid the use of any ceiling fixtures (lights and ceiling fans), they may have been affected by the fire or water.
- Avoid touching or pressing on ash and soot covered items. Pressure can cause the soot to infuse into fabrics causing damages or discoloration.
- Throw away any open food packages or containers. The food inside could potentially be contaminated.
- Immediately contact your insurance agent and a disaster restoration expert to begin the damage mitigation and repair process.
