What Should You Do If You Need Fire Damage Cleanup?
Author: Jeff Schuman
Did you have a fire in your home recently and now you find yourself needing fire damage cleanup done? Then you need to know the important things you need to do in order to get this cleanup done and your home restored to as normal as it can be so your family can move on with their life instead of always being reminded of the fire.
The following are the most important things that need to be done if you want the cleanup of fire to get done right.
One: Check with your insurance company - This is important to do because if you have insurance for fire then many times you will be covered for fire cleanup under your insurance policy.
Always check this first thing so that you know how you are going to pay for cleanup with a professional or if you are going to have to try and do the cleanup yourself.
Two: Hire a professional - If you are covered under insurance or even if you are not and can afford it you always want to hire a professional to help with fire cleanup because there is a lot of work that will need to be done that you don't have any knowledge of how to do.
The professionals will have the knowledge needed to get the cleanup done right in the shortest amount of time possible. This is knowledge that you would have to take time to learn before you could ensure the cleanup is done right and this means it will take longer for the cleanup to get done.
Three: Take photos - This is important for anyone that has insurance because you need pictures of the fire damage before the professional cleanup crew gets there. This way it can't be disputed that there really was damage once the cleanup has been done.
It is also a good idea to take before and after photos should they ever be needed by the insurance company. Also it is smart to have someone from the insurance company come to your home to see the damage for themselves before the cleanup is done so that there won't be any questions later on.
Now that you know what to do if you need fire damage cleanup; all that remains is to get started. The sooner you find a professional to hire for the cleanup and you get your pictures taken the sooner you can get the cleanup done and the bad memory of the fire put behind you so your family can move forward again.
