SERVPRO Says Don't Let This Happen to Your Stacked Fire Wood

Fire Damage in Your Levittown Home, Information from SERVPRO

Fires are a devastating disaster that can have a destructive impact resulting in Levittown fire damage to an individual's property. However, learning what steps to take once your property has been impacted by an incendiary event can help you restore your residential living space. Obtain information and advice, compliments of SERVPRO, regarding how to deal with a fire damaging event.

Fires ignite for numerous reasons. In some cases, the fire is related to fireplaces or wood stoves that are prevalent in this area of Pennsylvania. Firewood should always be stacked and stored at least 15 feet from the house structure. Many older homes have antiquated wiring leading to arcing and electrically initiated fires. House fires, though their occurrences are far too often, are not inevitable. Homeowners can reduce the likelihood of their occurrence by implementing sound prevention measures. 

Call Your Insurance Agent. Once a fire does break out on your property, it's important for you to call your insurance agent immediately. Your insurance agent will dispatch an adjuster to inspect your property and then help you complete the claims process. To ensure that you can obtain the maximum level of coverage possible, you'll take photos. SERVPRO advises to call us so that we may inspect, assess and offer you a treatment plan to restore your fire damaged home. We can, upon your approval, coordinate this service in tandem with your adjuster. This will expedite the services required while limiting the claim amount. The chances are that your insurance company has us on its list of approved and preferred vendors.

Determine Health Hazards. In addition to calling your insurance agent, you'll need to be cognizant of any health and safety hazards that may exist on your property following the fire. Smoke damage can be significant in its repercussions. Incomplete combustion, along with the heat and nature of the fuel, will leave behind a residue of smoke, odors, and soot. The HVAC must be turned off to limit contamination of non-affected rooms.
