Fire Damage Omaha

We know that dealing with a fire is extremely traumatizing. Unfortunately, shock and stress are the least of your worries when you’re facing smoke and fire damage. As you continue reading, you’re going to quickly learn what to do after a fire, and how Restoration Now! can help you restore your property.

 

What You Should Do After a Fire

Evacuate! Get your family away.

Even after a fire is extinguished, carbon monoxide levels will still be dangerous in your home. In addition, it’s difficult for most people to assess structural damage – your home could be in danger of a collapse even if there’s no obvious problem.

If you do decide that it’s absolutely safe to enter, remember to wear a respirator to prevent lung damage from dust particles. Alternatively, begin thinking about where you and your family could stay if our team determines your property is unsafe to inhabit throughout repairs.

Once you’re confident of your family’s safety and lodging, begin documenting damages and contact your insurance representative. Remember that there is a good chance your insurance will cover hotel expenses.

If your property is safe to enter and you’re sure that the fire has been fully extinguished, check your power supply. You may need to call city utilities to turn things back on once our Restoration Now! Team has made any necessary repairs to your wiring, gas lines or plumbing.
