Fire Damage What To Do AFTER The Fire Call SERVPRO of Metrocrest for your fire restoration needs

Becoming a victim of a fire loss is never on anyone's list of 'to do's', but when or if it does happen to you or a loved one - it's good to have a checklist of what you need to do right away:

After the fire - your first call should be to your insurance agent to get the claim process rolling.  

Next - you should locate or start replacement of:

  • driver’s license
  • insurance policies
  • military discharge papers
  • Passports
  • birth, death, marriage certificates
  • social security or medical cards
  • credit cards
  • titles to deeds
  • stocks and bonds
  • wills
  • medical records
  • warranties
  • finance & income tax records
  • citizenship papers
  • mortgage papers

Know your coverage as most policies will cover temporary living expenses in addition to coverage of your home and contents.  The mitigation and restoration process can take months - depending upon the extent of the fire, smoke and odor damage to your property.
