In Pocatello the Charlotte fire has burnt 20 homes and damaged countless others. All the staff here at Tobin Cleaning and Restoration feel for the all victims of any fire.
It is always sad to see such destruction and the disruption in peoples lives. The Charlotte Fire has put off lots of smoke and that may displace even more Family’s.
Things to remember when fire is nearby are:
- Get your most valuable possession (family) and biggest needs(medicine and paper work) ready to evacuate if needs be
- Close your windows and doors if possible to reduce the Smoke
- Don’t be afraid to leave if the smoke gets thick.
- When you leave, be sure to let people know(friends, family, leaders)
- Try to be with a group
When you return home there may be smoke damage to your home. If there is, you will need to call your insurance agent and a reputable smoke restoration company. Cleaning up after smoke can be difficult because it gets into every little crack and crevasse’s. Without cleaning it the some smell will be there for a vary long time. If you own one of the homes that did get consumed with the Charlotte Fire you will need to call your agent and get a reputable fire restoration company to help you rebuild.
