A fire in a Fort Mill home or business can cause major damage.

SERVPRO Can Restore Your Fire Damaged Fort Mill Property

After Fort Mill fire damage, circumstances can be very overwhelming for anyone. All of your possessions and property are covered in soot and degraded by smoke damage. Remember you can repair or replace objects, but not people. As long as everyone is safe, you can fix yourself or call in the fire damage restoration experts from SERVPRO in Fort Mill to restore your ruined home. 

Keep yourself highly organized. Document all conversations with the insurance company. Take photos. Keep all of your receipts and documents. Keep your original documents and provide only copies when requested. 

Call your insurance agent first. It is required that you file your claim as soon as you can, and it is best for you to do this promptly. Further, you need to submit a proof of loss claim. The more quickly you can do this, the more rapidly you can get an adjustor to assess damages. 

Call a trusted fire damage restoration company. Look for a company that also handles remodeling and construction services. This research will save you time and money. SERVPRO offers a comprehensive program including water extraction, drying, cleaning, repairing, restoring, and total remodeling.

After assessing the damages, your property must be secured. A good quality fire damage restoration company can provide this service. We can board up exposed exterior walls, doors, and tarp roofs to keep out the elements. You must stay vigilant because a home or business damaged by fire can be a target for thieves and vandals. 

Next the damage restoration company and your insurance company should work together to compile a recovery plan. This plan will involve assessing structural damage, determining which items can be cleaned, salvaged or replaced, and what items must be wrapped and safely removed. Further, the team should be able to inventory, move, and keep your belongings in a secure location for cleaning and storage until your home has been repaired and restored. We are preferred fire damage service providers to most large insurance and property management companies. So coordinating the entire restoration process is simplified for you, as we alleviate unnecessary stress to you. 

Do not try to wash residue from walls (soot will leave streaky stains), use carpet or furniture with heavy damage, consume any food products or goods exposed to fire damage. Do not attempt to test electronic devices or appliances on your own if there is standing water and dangerous debris within the structure. 

With patience and a team of trusted fire damage restoration pros from SERVPRO, your fire damaged Fort Mill property can be restored to its pre-loss condition "Like it never even happened.
