Fire Damage

Dealing with fire damage

Most smoke and soot damages are treatable.  

Remember that as water is the main method used to fight fires, much of the advice relating to flood damage will also apply to items damaged by fire.

Safety

Fire leaves most metal things rusty and dirty. Tetanus is a significant risk, especially when cleaning through the remains of sheds.

If you plan on entering a fire-damaged site, the FIRST thing you should do is to see your GP and get a tetanus shot.

Fires produce highly toxic smoke and soot as well as structurally damage buildings. You will not be able to re-enter your premises until it has been assessed by authorities as being safe.
