What to Do After a Commercial Fire

After a Commercial Fire

When your business experiences a fire, the damage can be devastating. In addition to issues created by flames and soot, the business can suffer more loss due to water damage created by firefighters trying to douse the blaze with water. Mix in the smoke odors that persist, and you are looking at a lot of issues to deal with after the final flame is extinguished.

Don’t despair. When a fire impacts your business, the best thing to do is to follow the following steps that will help you get things back to normal as quickly as possible.

  • Contact your insurance company– Call your insurance provider ASAP. Informing them as quickly as possible will help with the claims process. Even while firefighters are still battling the blaze, placing a call to your insurance company is a good idea.
  • Take notes and document the damage – Once the fire is out, don’t remove anything. Instead, take stock of the damage and document it with pictures, videos, and lists of what you lost in the blaze. Don’t move anything or try to salvage items before your insurance adjuster gets there. Simply documenting the damage and preparing it for your insurance company is what is needed at this point.
  • Contact a property restoration company –Once your insurance adjuster has surveyed the damage and started your claim, you must contact a trusted restoration specialist. In the Midwest Tri-State area, that company is Perfection Property Restoration.
