Fire and Smoke Restoration Damage

What can you do?

It is important to understand the risk to your safety and health even after the fire is out. The soot and dirty water left behind may contain things that could make you sick.  Before you begin any cleanup or repairs please check with the fire department or a restoration company to determine what potential saftey hazards are present in your situation.

When it is determined you can enter the structure safely the following are some things you can do to help with your claim process:

  • Contact your insurance company to inform them of the fire to start the insurance claim process.
  • Contact a restoration company to secure the property by boarding up any unsecure penetrations in the structure (windows, doors, missing walls or roof).
  • Take photos from every angle possible inside and outside to use later in identifying damaged personal contents.
  • If possible, try to retrieve important documents (deeds, passports, mortgage papers, etc.)
  • Keep receipts from any purchases you make after the fire as you may recover some or all of those expenses from your insurance company.
