Your Haddam home has suffered fire damage. What does SERVPRO of Middletown/New Britain’s remediation process look like?
The last handful of blog posts have focused on household and commercial problems that occur frequently in the winter. A couple of posts gave helpful tips and advice about preparing your homes and commercial properties for winter, one went in depth about the causes of winter fires and the some simple, yet potentially life-saving, steps you can take to prevent any such disaster from ruining your holiday cheer. What if the worst happens and a fire damages your property? Let’s go more in depth about the process: What do you do to remediate fire damage to your home or commercial property?
- Create an escape route - Before any disaster strikes your home or property, it is best practice to have a prepared escape route and emergency plan. Creating a plan in advance and going over it with your family, tenants, and or employees will ensure that in case of an emergency, everyone will know what to do and where to go.
- Make sure you and your family are safe - The first and most important step is self-explanatory. Make sure you and your family are safe. Any home that has suffered fire damage contains airborne toxins, smoke, and quite possibly structural damage that could pose serious risks. Make sure that you assess the damage and potential risk before returning to your home.
