Follow These Steps After a Fire

The thought of facing a fire in your office building probably feels you with fear. Getting to safety and mitigating the damage are your most important roles in such an event. You should also be prepared for this type of emergency. You can rely on professionals to handle fire restoration. Meanwhile, make sure you act wisely and follow some important guidelines.

Vital Phone Calls
If a fire starts in your office during working hours, put your evacuation plan into action and get out of the building immediately. Meet at a designated place safely away from your building and take a headcount. As soon as possible after the fire begins, do the following:

  • Call 911 and alert the local fire department of the incident.
  • Call your fire insurance company and report the event.
  • Call a reputable professional fire remediation company to start the cleanup and rebuilding process.

Record the Damage Carefully
To file an insurance claim, your provider will want to know the details of the fire. Describe how and when it happened. Report on the extent of the damage and whether there were any injuries. Estimate the value of your losses. If it's safe to do, and if the authorities allow it, take pictures of the interior and exterior of your building. However, do not touch anything. Disturbing damaged materials could cause further harm. Let the professionals in Plumstead Township, PA, handle the smoke cleaning and rebuilding process.

Stay in Close Touch With the Cleanup Team
During the cleanup and fire restoration stage, communicate often with the team. Ensure that the crews board up windows, doors, and gaps in the building. The team should also tarp the roof to protect the office from the elements. The remediation company should also coordinate its efforts with your insurance provider.
To complete a successful rebuild and fire restoration of your building, adhere to these tips. Do your part to stay safe, and let the pros handle the challenging work.
