  • Cover upholstery, rugs, and carpet traffic areas by placing dry, colorfast towels or old linens on them.
  • If electricity is off, empty refrigerator/freezer. Clean completely and prop open doors to help prevent odors.
  • Change HVAC filters; leave system off until a trained professional can check them.
