These tips can help you get your life back to normal as quickly as possible after a fire.

1. Call your insurance company immediately. 

Your insurance company can guide you through your options based on your insurance coverage. They can also offer detailed instructions about what you need to do to file a claim based on their requirements and your needs. This step is essential to make sure you receive the compensation you need for covering the costs.

2. Use caution-

Avoid causing any extra damage to your house by tracking soot and water to other areas. Additionally, exposure to soot particles and toxic materials via skin, ingestion, and inhalation are very dangerous. 

Don’t enter your home until you have been cleared by the authorities. Once you’ve been given clearance, be aware of hazards. Watch out for exposed wires, wet floors, and compromised structures.

3. Secure your property-

It’s common for there to be broken windows and doors after a fire. Your property needs to be properly secured. SERVPRO's fire restoration board-up service can help you minimize further damage from things like weather, vandalism or theft.

4. Make important calls-

Many people think about calling their insurance company, but there are other important calls to make after a fire. Call your landlord or mortgage company, and any utility providers will need to be contacted.

Also, inform the police that your house will be vacant so officers are aware to look for anything suspicious. Notify your employer and your children’s school make sure they are aware of short-term changes that will come with restoring your home.
