Safety is always the number one priority after a house fire. Before anything, get all of your family members and pets out of the house as quickly as possible. Fires are never a good situation and can be very stressful. Our goal at SERVPRO® is to make your experience after a fire as seamless as possible by restoring any damages, cleaning important documents or items for you, and providing reconstruction services if needed.
Do not enter your home after fire damages
Always wait until the fire department gives you an “all clear” to re-enter your home after a fire. You may expose yourself to mold, fumes and particles from soot, water damage, structural issues, gas leaks, or electrical hazards in water.
Call your insurance agent
If the damage is extreme to the point where your home is not livable, most homeowners’ insurance policies cover the cost of a hotel, short-term rental, or food if your home is damaged due to a fire. You’ll also need to begin the claims process to cover home repairs and the replacement of damaged belongings
Reach out to local organizations for extra support
If you do not have homeowners insurance, there are a lot of options for help after a fire. Organizations such as Salvation Army, American Red Cross, health departments, religious organizations, and state emergency offices can assist you with resources
