Let SERVPRO Restore Your Fire Damaged Home in Venice Beach

Although a fire can be a difficult natural or accidental disaster to grapple with, it is often the aftermath of fire damage in Venice Beach that leaves homeowners truly troubled. Once the fire extinguishers or fire hoses douse the final flames, it is the residential property owner's responsibility to start the process of fire damage restoration. This process can be an economically and emotionally debilitating experience as homeowners deal with costly repairs and the reality of unsalvageable personal possessions that were of sentimental value. Despite the challenges that result from dealing with the aftermath of a fire, homeowners can help expedite and optimize the process by learning how to handle it correctly. SERVPRO offers the following guide and suggestions to help you along with this trying ordeal.

Fire Damage Remediation Timeline. One of the first calls (actually the third)  you should make during the aftermath of a fire is to call fire damage remediation specialists like SERVPRO. This step is important for many reasons, including the fact that the specialist will perform an assessment that helps determine the safety level of your home. In some cases, the fire can weaken the structural integrity of your property, making it unsafe for you to reenter. Your first call to the local fire department resulted in extinguished flames, and a mess left behind. The fire marshal should advise you on the safety of when you can re-enter your property in Venice Beach. In addition to completing a thorough assessment that gauges the safety level of your property, as well as the damages, our remediation specialist will determine which cleanup methodologies are most appropriate in light of your unique circumstances.

File Your Insurance Claim. Before contacting a fire remediation specialist, you will need to call your insurance agent who will dispatch an insurance adjuster to your address. This individual will provide you with information and instructions regarding how to file your claim. The insurance company will also sometimes be able to work hand in hand with SERVPRO to coordinate all the aspects of the fire damage restoration process.
