Fire is very serious and can be emotionally taxing for all involved. Who can you trust to take care of you and your family? A good restoration company is vital. Read why so many of your neighbors are satisfied with our services.
What Should you do After a Fire?
Contact your insurance agent– Contact your insurance company right away and ask them what to do first.
Take care of yourself and your family– Contact your local disaster relief service, they will help you find food, clothing, medicine and a place to stay. You have a big job ahead of you. Get plenty of rest, and ask for help. Do not try to do it all alone.
Get Finances in order– Contact your landlord or mortgage lender. It is also important you get in touch with your credit card company to report credit cards that were lost in the fire. Save all of your receipts for any money you spend, these receipts may be needed later by the insurance company, and you will need them to prove losses claimed on your tax return.
Tips to Minimize Loss
Air your home to reduce smoke odor
Change filters on furnaces
Toss any open food packages
If power is off, clean your refrigerator out and leave the door open
Send smoke and soot-damaged clothing and drapery for professional cleaning
Important Fire Safety Reminders
Do not try to turn on water, gas or any other utility unless otherwise directed by the fire department.
Do not enter your damaged home or apartment unless the fire department says it is safe.
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. Be very careful if you go into your home and if you touch any fire-damaged items.
To Avoid Making Big MistakesDon’t :
Touch anything with your bare hands – further damage could occur
Wash walls – this could spread the soot
Clean upholstery or carpets
Use any electrical items until they’ve been inspected

Kitchen appliance finishes will also discolor within hours
Smoke will permanently etch into glass and tarnish metal surfaces quickly
Does Insurance Cover Fire Damage and Restoration?

Although fire coverage is included in most homeowners’ policies there are certain exclusions to coverage. If you are curious about what is covered for you personally, call your agent.
