Fire Damage Assessment Basics
In many cases, homeowners are tempted to start the cleanup process for themselves after a fire has impacted their property. Don't make this mistake. Instead, you should first contact your insurance agent to determine the extent of your coverage for the damages. The insurance company will also need to perform an inspection to your property to attain a clear estimate for repairing damages. You will also need to get in contact with a professional fire damage restoration company. Both SERVPRO of North Oceanside and the insurance adjuster will complete the fire damage assessment. The assessment is effective in determining the extent of the damages, whether it is safe for you to reenter the property, and which equipment and materials will be necessary to complete the restoration process. Here are some of the primary components of the assessment process:
Assessing Superficial Damage
Following a fire in your home in Oceanside, a restoration expert will check your property for superficial damage. During this process, the remediation professional will start with the exterior and look for things like missing shingles, damaged chimneys, melted objects, and fire-damaged items. Additionally, the specialist will check your roof, yard, and other exterior regions of the property. Throughout the assessment, it's a good idea for you to use a video recorder or camera to take pictures of these items, only if it can be done safely. This visual evidence will help you in the event that you have challenges with achieving appropriate insurance restitution.
Assessing Internal Damage
After analyzing the property for superficial damage, the fire damage restoration professional will inspect the interior of your house for damage. This inspection of adjoining rooms for smoke, soot,
and water damage will aid in determining an action plan for restoration.
