Have you ever had a fire in your home?

If your answer is yes, then you understand how devastating it is. And if you haven’t, take the necessary precautionary measures as early as possible.

SERVPRO will help you and your family get your life back on track. 

What Fire Restoration in Rutherford County is All About

Whether small or big, fire can cause significant damage to your home. The damage is usually due to the actual flames, smoke, and heat from the flames.

Moreover, the water used to put out the fire can cause significant damage. The results of water damage include:

  • Warping
  • Growth of mold
  • Structural damage
  • Electrical and electronic equipment damage

Tips for Fire Restoration in Rutherford County Before Fire Restoration Arrives

When your home is destroyed by fire, you need to call SERVPRO as soon as possible - we’ll be there in no time.

But before we arrive, here’s what you need to do: 

1. Don’t Clean Up the Soot

It’s understandable that the ashes and soot can be quite annoying.  However, don’t be in a hurry to clean them out on your own, mainly if they are on furniture and walls. You may make the situation worse.

2. Get a Fire Report

Get a copy of the fire report from the local fire marshal.  It’ll help in the general restoration process.

3. Documenting the Damage

Ensure you document the damage. List down the damaged items and take pictures and/or videos for your insurance purposes.

4. Change the Filter of Your AC

Changing the filter in the air conditioning and heating system should make your home a little bit liveable even before the fire restoration takes place.
