How To Handle a Home or Business Fire
Fire Damage Can Be Restored by SERVPRO
Fires can be terrifying and life changing. Not only do they erase the value of your home, but severe fires can also completely derail your life and destroy your possessions in just a few minutes. Plus, you have to consider the effects caused by firefighters and other specialists assessing the scene. Now, your beautiful home is dealing with soot, ash, structural damage, and even water damage. It's easy to feel helpless when you're dealing with these situations, but they don't always have to be bleak. Our service professionals understand how to renovate or restore your home to its pre-loss condition "Like it never even happened." Our friendly and professional staff has to provide a fire damage assessment that determines what we can do to help.
Why You Should Call SERVPRO for a Fire Damage Assessment
We've seen a lot of fire damage in Dallas, and a few things about handling the situation stand out. First, don't start cleaning your home; leave it just like it is. Secondly, call your homeowner's insurance company and determine what your coverage limits are for fire damage, and to have an adjuster come out to estimate the repair costs. This can help you afford to repair and restore your home back to normal. Third, give us a call. We can begin the cleanup process, determine what kinds of damages there are, and whether or not you can safely enter your home. After that, upon agreement, we'll start working, determining the best materials, equipment, and clean-up gear that we'll need to fix your home.
What Does SERVPRO Actually Assess in a Fire Emergency Situation?
We perform a large number of checks to ensure that your home is safe. First, we scan for superficial, surface damages that could be problematic in the future. Often, shingles melt, siding is destroyed, and many surfaces are covered with smoke, soot, and ash. We often advise our customers to take pictures to capture damages to show their insurance agent. We can also provide photos during our assessment.
The second, more important part of the assessment determines if there is any internal damage to your home. This could include your walls, roof, floors, joists, flooring, ducts, ventilation systems, windows, sinks, wiring, plumbing and more. Fire damage can make your home unlivable unless the situation is addressed.
