  • This just sucks !

  • This blows !
    My wife and I with the help of our 4 boys spent this weekend throwing out 30+ years of our "Stuff" into a 22" roll off dumpster, lost some antique dressers and tables my Grandmother gave me, Most everything else was nothing to write home about except that it was all our ..."Stuff", One good thing we saved 99% of our pictures, they were stored in a different part of the house.

    Now if I could ask you guys some questions............. Anyone ever had to deal with smoke damage?, was reading up on it and they say to use vinegar mixed with water to was down stuff and baking soda sprinkled on cloth and cushions and the like. Anyone tried these tricks?

    I post when I can, Thanks

  • That must really suck. I can only imagine... Good news is that you saved the family pictures. Makes me think of getting a fire proof vault. I have a fire proof drawing file. Good luck with the insurance company resolve. I hope they come through for you.

  • I'd talk to someone at Service Master or someone who cleans up after a fire , My middle daughter had a fire and they came in and had a special way of cleaning as some stuff will make it worse. If you touched a wall or something the oil on your skin make a stain. The insurance company paid for the cleaning.
