OUR FIRE DAMAGE RESTORATION PROCESS
WHAT TO DO IN A
FIRE DAMAGE EMERGENCY
You can take these steps to prevent further damage until an Elite Restoration professional arrives to assist you:
- Open windows for ventilation.
- Rub petroleum jelly or other oil on metal surfaces to inhibit oxidation of the metal surfaces.
- Wipe down grout, bath fixtures, counter-tops, and appliances with household cleaners as soon as possible after a fire. Smoke residue can stain these fixtures. Immediate cleaning can prevent the need to have these replaced.
- Brush smoke particulate from furnishings and draperies.
- Do not attempt to wash walls, ceilings, or other porous surfaces.
- Dispose of food and canned goods exposed to excessive heat.
- Remove and deodorize clothing. Proper smoke damage cleaning is vital. Improper cleaning may set odor permanently.

Microbial Decontamination of Fire Damaged Houses
Elite Restoration dries, cleans, and sanitizes your crawl spaces and HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system to decontaminate your home.
Fire and smoke damage require more service and expertise than an ordinary contractor or house cleaner can provide. Restoring a property back to livable condition takes time and care. Elite Restoration removes smoke and soot from upholstered furnishings, carpets, draperies, and building interiors. Our team cleans, deodorizes, refinishes, and restores hard furnishings. The teams have experience in residential, commercial, and industrial smoke damage restoration. If not charred, we restore the building’s contents to their pre-loss condition.
Please note: Fire damage requires more than a janitorial cleaning. Soot can be permanently embedded by improper cleaning. Here’s a brief guide to help make sure it’s done properly.

Emergency Response Action Plan
- Consult the fire chief about the safety of the structure and a timeline for re-entering the building.
IMPORTANT: Do not re-enter the property until the fire chief says it is safe.
- The fire department will often have your utilities shut off or disconnected while they are fighting a fire.
- Check to be sure they are disconnected before entering the area. Do not attempt to re-connect your utilities yourself, and do not have them restored without approval from the fire department. It is best to have a professional look for leaks before resuming utilities.
IMPORTANT: Do not light a match, smoke on the property, or use electrical equipment and appliances until they are properly inspected.
- When you do reenter, be aware of structural damage that may fail; watch for charred beams and sagging ceilings.
- When appropriate, use hard hats and other safety gear.
- Stay away from electrical shock hazards. Standing water and exposed wiring is a dangerous combination. Be careful of damage inside walls that might not be visible.
- People with allergies and respiratory problems as well as pets should stay out of the area until after clean-up is completed. Ventilating the home can remove soot residues and other harmful airborne irritants.
- If you have a fireproof safe or strongbox that survived the disaster, do not open the box for several hours, as the air inside can keep an extremely high temperature. It could burn everything in the box when the air meets the cool outside air.
- Do not consume any heat-exposed food, drink, or medication. These can be chemically altered and dangerous to consume. Contact your pharmacist or physician to replace your medications.
IMPORTANT: Never go into rooms with standing water if the electricity is still on. Do not use and ordinary household vacuum to remove water, and do not use electrical appliances while standing on wet carpet or wet floors.
Following these guidelines can control and minimize losses. Contacting a professional in the early stages of a disaster can save you time and money. Most insurance policies require you to mitigate a disaster and take steps to prevent further damage.
