                Cleaning Tips After a Fire

                Here are some tips on how to safely clean up your home after a fire.

              • Wear protective clothing and put on work gloves and heavy soled shoes.

              • Wet debris down to minimize breathing dust particles.

              • To remove soot and smoke from walls, furniture and floors, use a mild soap or detergent. You can also mix together 4 to 6 tbsp. tri-sodium phosphate and 1 cup household cleaner or chlorine bleach to every gallon of warm water.

              • Wash walls one small area at a time, working from the floor up to prevent streaking. Rinse with clear water immediately. Ceilings should be washed last.

              • Do not repaint until your walls and ceilings are completely dry.

              • To reduce the chances of growth of mold and mildew by wiping down all surfaces that had gotten wet with a solution of one cup of liquid household bleach to a gallon of water. Test surfaces to ensure that the bleach solution will not discolor these surfaces. Wipe a small area of the surface with the bleach solution, and allow it to dry at least 24 hours.

              • Consult with a professional about replacing drywall and insulation that was soaked with water from fire hoses.
