What To Do Immediately After A Fire

When a fire occurs within or near your residential or commercial property and affects your safety and the safety of other occupants in the building, your first priority is to ensure your safety and the safety of others. Ideally, you should already have a comprehensive fire safety protocol in place, meaning the building’s smoke detectors and fire safety items are in good working condition and will alert occupants if a threat occurs. You should call 911 immediately to report the incident and request emergency assistance.

You should never enter or reenter any building that is ablaze. If your residence was affected by the fire, you should plan to either stay in a hotel or with family or friends until your home is ready to reenter. Once you and those around you are safe, be sure to seek the assistance of fire damage restoration Gainesville specialists to begin the fire damage restoration process. You will also want to contact your insurance company as soon as possible following the fire.

Assessing The Damage After A Fire

Before you reenter a property affected by fire damage, you should contact your local authorities to confirm it is safe. Once given the go-ahead, you should take pictures and document all exterior damage, noting any broken entryways, such as doors or windows, that are not secure. Any entrance or window no longer secure should be boarded up to ensure your property is secure during the fire and smoke damage restoration process. You should also take pictures of and document all damage to the interior structure and inventory the building damage and all damaged or lost items. Save receipts for all expenses paid for following the fire, as they may be required when you file an insurance claim.
