Things to consider when Fire Damage disrupts your life
– If this was a small fire that you have extinguished yourself, check to see if everyone is ok and that nobody is physically hurt. Particularly children, physically challenged individuals, the elderly and pets.
-If the fire department was called and involved, follow their advice on the safety of the property.
-There will typically be a code enforcement representative on the scene to help you assess the damage.
-Securing the property is your critical 1st step. CRBR can respond 24/7/365 to help you secure the property in the event of intruders and to help prevent further damages.
– If the damage is severe, do not attempt to go back into the unsafe structure to retrieve personal items.
– For a small fire, you could try to clean it yourself. However, the residue left by a fire can be toxic and corrosive
CRBR can work hand in hand with your insurance company on the details of the claim which allows you to focus on yourself and not this stressful situation if you are physically displaced, contact your insurance agent for your options.
