Caring For Your Belongings After Fire Damage

3/29/2021 (Permalink)

After a fire, the home or business owner can find themselves with a lot to handle, and the hours and days right after this type of traumatic event can be difficult to manage on several levels. It can be hard to know what to do with the damage that has been left behind, and it can be exhausting to even think about when you have just been through such a trying situation. Your structure, premises, and belongings will have been affected in most cases and that can be hard to manage by yourself. 


A professional restoration company, such as the team here at SERVPRO of North Nashville, knows just what to do and where to start, however, so contacting a business that can provide support and direction will be an important first step to take when it comes to caring for your belongings after fire damage. 

The professionals will provide a wide array of services that fall under the heading of fire damage restoration, and one of these services will include the restoration of your belongings, whether that includes textiles, electronics, paper, or other materials and types. 


A fire damage restoration company is an emergency service company, which means that they are dedicated to getting to you as quickly as possible after you contact them to provide you immediate relief from your disastrous situation. The fire department and EMTs will also be there right away, but once the fire is out and your loved ones are in good hands, your fire damage restoration company will go to work to recover and care for your property. The team will assess the extent of the damage and start taking the necessary steps to care for each type of item appropriately.


Stabilizing your building will be the first step your technicians take, followed by the removal of any items that are considered high value. Pre-cleaning is often necessary to prevent further damage and loss. Their goal should be to restore items so that you are not required to replace them if at all possible.

Technicians will then clean all hard surfaces to remove smoke and soot residue - they will be able to properly manage Formica, chrome, aluminum, stainless steel, and more. Porous materials will need to be removed, as well, and smoke odors eliminated using the appropriate technology. 

Furniture, electronics, and paper documents and items will all be cared for using the most up-to-date equipment and technologies so that your loss is as low as it can be. Your restoration professionals will work with your insurance adjuster so that the claim process goes smoothly and quickly, too. 


Here at SERVPRO of North Nashville, we’re committed to getting you back to normal after any kind of disaster, and that includes restoring all your belongings and equipment. Our processes are the best available, and our technicians are trained and equipped to handle any disaster you might face, from water damage and fire damage to mold infestations, damage from vandalism or accidents, and more. We can get your home or business Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, too - ask us how! This franchise is independently owned and operated.
