How Do You Clean Up After a Fire?

Tending to life after a fire can take time – and a lot more time than you think. In order to help you navigate the cleanup process after a fire, we’ve compiled a few tips. Knowing how to get through your house fire restoration can make a tedious process go more quickly. 

If your home isn’t a total loss and is safe to enter, survey the damage. You might do this on your own or call a restoration company right away to help you. Understanding the scope of the fire damage is always going to be one of the first steps in the restoration process. 

This step might be easy to overlook. You might want to jump in right away and start putting things back in order. If you rush over the assessment stage, though, you could face potential danger if your home isn’t safe to reenter. Also, you might face a longer restoration process. Fixing part of the problem without understanding the full scope of damage is like putting a bandage on a wound that needs stitches.

Work With Your Insurance

Understand your coverage when it comes to fire. Many homeowner’s insurance policies have fire coverage laid out in the terms and conditions. Make sure you know what your insurance company covers and whether there are any gaps in the coverage. Talk to your agent about having qualified restoration assist you with your house fire restoration. Having a professional help guide you through the process can make it easier and cheaper in the long run. Invest in quality help and you’ll be able to feel a difference.

Clear What You Can

Once the area is deemed safe for reentry, try to salvage what you can. Always keep safety at the forefront of your mind, but if you can salvage items from parts of your home that were untouched by the fire, do so. This might include fireproof safes with documents and any heirlooms that escaped the fire.
