2/2/2022 (Permalink)

No one ever wants to have to deal with restoring their home after a fire wreaks havoc on their family. But that is why your local SERVPRO is here; to deal with the stress so you can get back to normal as soon as possible. Although we will be there to help all along the way, there are a few crucial steps you should be prepared to take if and when disaster strikes:

  1. Get in touch with an insurance agent immediately

It is important to know what your insurance will cover, if anything, right at the beginning of the incident. Financial stress can be one of the worst parts of the process, but ensuring you are covered can prevent any unnecessary strain. 

  1. Find a copy of the fire damage report

These public documents are critical to have because they contain all of the necessary information about the incident. Keeping these documents in a personal file for later use will likely benefit you if there are any discrepancies.

  1. Start the mitigation process

This is where we come in. Call your local SERVPRO so we can be faster to your disaster. Our teams move quickly and carefully to ensure the proper restoration and protection of your home and valuables. This is not a process you should try to take on alone. 

  1. Keep a record of all damaged items 

Keeping a record of all of the things that were damaged can help with contents coverage when it comes to insurance. Your insurance company will likely cover the costs of any and all replacements after the fire. 

  1. Clean up

Another job for us at SERVPRO. We pride ourselves on the most thorough and professional restoration and cleaning services. Get it done right the first time, so you don’t have to go through the process of finding a replacement service for lackluster restorative and cleaning processes. 

  1. Start the Recovery process

Rebuilding and restoring a fire-damaged home can be a tough situation in all directions. Make sure you continue to document all of the repair and replacement spendings you make throughout the journey to better assist with the cost.
