SERVPRO Remedies the Fire Damage to Your Arlington Property

If your residential property in Arlington is impacted by a fire, there are numerous steps you'll need to take to start and successfully complete the fire damage restoration process. In many cases, homeowners grow overwhelmed, and fear that they will lack the assistance and economic resources necessary to return their property to its original condition. However, knowing what to do and who to call immediately after a fire is the key to saving money and preserving sanity. With that in mind, try using the following strategies to get the fire damage restoration process going.

Call Your Insurance Company

The first things you should do following a fire is to call your homeowners insurance company. An adjuster will be sent out by your insurance agent to complete several steps. He will inspect, and document visible fire damage and also take photographs. He can help with the claim forms and give you a formal okay to go forward with the fire damage remediation process. Be sure to take pictures of all areas of your property that have been damaged for your own records in case disputes arise. This will help ensure that you obtain the maximum level of coverage possible. A smart move is to call in SERVPRO, a locally owned franchise with national roots, to inspect and assess the fire damage and to offer you a CCIS report that is a very comprehensive listing. This listing inventories fire damaged items and building materials room by room. It will indicate what is deemed to be salvageable, non-salvageable, and questionable.  We can work in conjunction with your adjuster, upon your approval, of a formal plan to start the fire damage restoration process.

Never Complete A DIY Project

Because they are anxious to see their property restored to its pre-fire condition, many homeowners seek to complete some of the cleanup work themselves. Even in the case of little damage with collateral damage, this is not a good idea. There is a wide range of hidden dangers that can result from fire damage. Exposure to these dangers can endanger your health and even your life. Smoke damage and odor, oily soot coating furniture and fabric and layers of ashes require professional assistance for proper and safe remediation. You should leave the fire damage restoration process in the hands of the trained professionals from SERVPRO.
