Fire Safety

If your home or business catches fire, act quickly. Fires rapidly engulf structures and become life-threatening in minutes. Smoke and poisonous gases released by the fire kill more people than the flames. Crawl below the smoke to the nearest exit, but never open doors hot to the touch. Get far away from the burning building, call 911 and wait for help.

Once the fire is out, don’t reenter the building until firefighters tell you it’s safe to do so. Call VanDam & Krusinga for immediate assistance. Our IICRC-certified fire and smoke restoration experts:

  • Board up windows and doors
  • Tarp roof, if needed
  • Inspect property to determine the extent of the damage
  • Suggest the best recovery options
  • Extract water from firefighting efforts
  • Remove debris and non-recoverable items
  • Restore recoverable items
  • Clean soot from all surfaces
  • Sanitize and remove lingering odors
  • Reconstruct your property to pre-fire condition

Flood Safety

Floods are the most common natural disaster in the nation. If your area is placed under a flood warning, evacuate immediately. If rapidly rising water makes it unsafe to leave your home or business, go to the highest floor. Never seek refuge in a closed attic where you may become trapped by floodwater, and only climb on the roof if absolutely necessary.

If you made it safely out of the flood zone, don’t return to your home or business until authorities say it’s safe to do so. Once inside, don’t wade through standing water or touch anything that could cause electrocution. Call VanDam & Krusinga for immediate assistance.
