Get hold of a copy of the fire report

A fire report discusses the structure of the property, where and when the fire happened, it contains an incident number and any other specific details about the damage to your property. This report will be needed by your insurance company to file a successful fire damage insurance claim.

Secure your property

Make sure your property is fully secured to prevent further damage from vandalism or theft.

How to reduce the stress of a fire damage insurance claim

Begin a clean-up operation

Getting your property back to normal may take some time, but there are some things that you can do straight away to prevent further damage from smoke (click here to find out how to reduce smoke damage). Some damage requires professional tools to prevent more damage being caused to your property. National Home Repairs’ team of reliable restoration experts and builders have over 40 years of experience in fire damage restoration and we have the professional tools that can restore your property to its pre-incident condition, quickly and with little hassle to you.

Always be prepared

Installing smoke detectors around your house, particularly near high risk areas such as kitchens or near a circuit breaker, is a great way to protect your house from smoke damage. Alerting you to an issue quickly will reduce the chances of a fire or smoke from spreading.

Monitor changes in the weather, which could affect the temperature inside your property. Electrical sockets could over heat in the summer, potentially causing a fire which would emit smoke.

Get everyone involved. Make sure everyone living in your home or inhabiting your business are aware of potential fire hazards such as leaving a charger plugged in overnight or leaving a burning candle unattended.
