Time is of the essence after a fire. Even though there will be a level of shock and disbelief, there are things that you’ll need to do as soon as possible. Don’t worry about the structure. It can be replaced.

Contact your insurance company as soon as possible to file a claim and find out if there are any benefits you can access. Save the receipts for anything you must purchase as a result of the fire. That can include lodgings, clothing and other necessities. They may also have the names of local restoration and cleanup professionals.

You, your family, and any pets will need to find a safe place to stay. Even a small amount of fire damage will render your home uninhabitable. If you don’t have access to family, you can contact a local disaster relief organization such as the American Red Cross or Salvation Army that can provide assistance with locating lodgings.

It’s also a good idea to make a visit to the veterinarian for any pets. Smoke inhalation can cause severe harm to pets’ lungs. They may even have sustained burns that aren’t immediately visible and they’ll be traumatized the same as you and your family.

After a fire is extinguished, you’ll be responsible for boarding up the structure to prevent any unauthorized entry. It’s a safety issue and a top-flight fire, smoke, and water restoration company will provide that service. The company should also be able to work directly with your insurer to coordinate what needs to be done to preserve any salvageable belongings, initiate cleanup, and restoration.

A fire restoration company will make recovery infinitely easier. Whenever possible, they’ll salvage and restore items to their pre-fire condition, remediating smoke, odor, water and mold damage. The company should also be able to aid in the cleanup and restoration process of your home. A fire is an extremely traumatic event. Following a set of procedures will help you and your family return to normal as quickly as possible.
