Tips For Handling Fire Damage To Your Building

A fire does more than damage your building. It interrupts your business and can even affect your revenue. It is in your best interest to get everything back to normal as soon as possible. Here are some tips for handling fire damage to your building in Powell, TN, efficiently.

Hire One Company
Your first call after the fire is out should be to a reliable fire mitigation company. The certified technicians in charge of your repairs can arrive within hours of your call to assess the damage and inform you of the steps of the cleanup process:

  • Water extraction
  • Material removal
  • Surface drying
  • Disinfection
  • Restoration

Many business owners will hire a different team to handle the rebuilding process, but the whole job goes much more smoothly if you choose one company that specializes in both mitigation and restoration. It streamlines the process and simplifies communication when the same technicians handle the job from start to finish. Restoring your building after the fire damage is gone is easier when builders have full access to information about what needs to be replaced.

Contact Your Insurance Provider
As soon as you know the extent of the damage that needs repair, you must call your insurance company to start the claims process. An insurance adjuster will be sent to walk through the building and take note of the state it is in. If you have any pictures or video of the affected area soon after the fire was extinguished, this documentation may be helpful, particularly if mitigation is already underway by the time the adjuster arrives. Another benefit of choosing the same company to handle both mitigation and restoration is that you can present one estimate that details all the costs that your policy is likely to cover with your claim.
When your building burns, it's important to mitigate the fire damage and restore your building as soon as possible. Hiring one team for the whole process is the best way to get it done quickly.
