After a fire or smoke event, the first thing you will want to do is get your home back to normal. Even though a professional smoke remediation company will be able to help you thoroughly remove all the smoke damage, you can take some steps to prepare for the process. Here’s how to get ready for smoke remediation services.
Open All Windows and Doors
After you have been allowed to re-enter your home, the first thing you should do is open up all the doors and windows. Getting as much ventilation as possible will not only help get some of the residual smoke out, it will also make it safer for you to be in the house. Open front and back doors and windows to get an efficient cross-breeze flowing through the building.
Turn Off the HVAC System
As soon as you are able to, turn off your HVAC system. Heating and AC vents and ducts will have soot and dust in them and blow it out around the house. A remediation company will clean those areas for you before they turn the HVAC back on.
Remove All Cleanable Items
Go around your home looking for things that are salvageable and able to be cleaned and move them outside. This includes things like furniture, appliances and electronics. This will make it easier for the company providing smoke remediation services to do their work once they get there.
