Rebuilding Your Life (and Home) After a Fire

by D.O.N.E. Restoration on 08/28/14

A fire can happen at any time. No matter how old or new your home is, a fire could occur for a number of reasons. Many homeowners are not prepared for a disaster caused by fire. So, if this disaster strikes at your home, what should you do next? 

 house fire
Do not enter your home until permission is given by the fire department.  It is dangerous to enter your house after a fire, even if minimal damage was done.  Structures may be compromised, and sometimes fires can re-ignite.  Contact family members that were not with you during the fire to let them know what happened and that everything is okay.  If you are the homeowner, call your insurance company as soon as possible.  Your insurance company will help you take the next steps in the process of rebuilding your home and life.  Your insurance provider will help with minimizing damage to your home, make a list of contents damaged in the fire, secure your home from vandalism, and locate temporary housing.  They will also have a home inspector come assess the damage to your home.  You need to know what your insurance policy covers. 

Replace all important documents you may have lost in the fire.  This may include your driver’s license, social security card, passport, birth certificates, or any other document that is vital to you.  You should not return to your home until the fire department declares it safe to return to your home.  If you are allowed back in your home, make sure to take detailed photographs of the damage to provide to your insurance provider.  Experience, licensed inspectors will thoroughly asses the damage in your house.
