When Fire Damage Attacks Your Home, SERVPRO Is Here For You!

1/8/2021 (Permalink)

There are so many things to address when a house fire happens. Each fire is different, and yet there are many similarities. Dealing with insurance, addressing the damage from smoke, soot and odor, and tearing down and reconstructing what can't be saved while renovating what can, are all things that occur in most fires.  Hiring the professionals at SERVPRO for cleanup is the best way to ensure that everything is done in a timely fashion.

As mentioned above, there are many issues to address with each fire, but 2 of the most vital are moisture issues coming from sprinklers and fire hoses, and odors from smoke and potential mold. What follows are some of the crucial steps to follow to make the assessment and cleanup go smoothly:

•Communicate with the authorities to see when it is safe to begin the post-fire assessment

 •Talk with close family and friends to let them know that you are safe and to communicate any needs that you may have immediately like clothing, food, or immediate shelter.  Our team can help with all of the necessary claim forms to expedite the fire restoration process after you let your insurance company know that you would like to use SERVPRO.

 •Obtain a report from your local fire department, which includes details of the fire, the structure of the home and fire location, the time, and the date.

 •Discuss with SERVPRO about starting to have your property boarded up until the full cleanup and restoration process begins. This will keep your property safe from those who might vandalize or steal anything that is left in your home.

When the assessment process can begin, SERVPRO technicians arrive and fully assess the interior as well as the exterior of your home.
