House Fire Recovery steps
A house fire can hit you hard, both physically and emotionally. In addition to your home, you could lose valuable possessions and irreplaceable personal items. You'll need to take steps to protect your property, recover your loss and heal from the damage. After a traumatic event such as a fire, it's a good idea to ask family and friends to help you with some of the tasks you'll need to complete as part of your recovery. Their help and support will lighten your work load and lift your spirits.
Contact Insurance Company
As soon as possible after the fire, contact your insurance company. Don't attempt to do any kind of cleanup until an insurance representative has evaluated the site. Take pictures of the damage, and take steps to prevent further damage, such as covering a hole in the roof with a tarp. But don't set foot on the site until the fire department has cleared the area as safe. Your insurance policy may include a provision to provide living expenses while your home is being rebuilt or repaired.
