Changing the batteries in your smoke detectors

Changing the batteries in your smoke detectors and testing them to make sure they are functioning properly is one of the best ways to prevent disaster from occurring. A well-known rule of thumb is to change the batteries in your smoke detectors every time you change the clocks.  Up to date and strategically placed fire extinguishers are also very important in preventing disaster.

Smoke Damage Can Touch Everything in Your Home

After a fire in a home it's very possible that contaminating smoke has touched every item and area in your home. In smoke, there are residual amounts of chemicals and other bi-products due to burning plastics and other chemical-based items in your home that may have burned in the fire.  Those residual chemicals have been transferred by the smoke and is now left on your walls, furniture, floors, personal items, and other contents in your home.  Even things like your light bulbs in your lamps must be decontaminated or disposed of properly.
