- Do my belongings need to be moved away from the premises during the fire restoration process?
- What about special items? Artwork, china, heirlooms, etc.
- What are some safety concerns for smoke or fire damage at our business?
Depending on the extent of the fire or smoke damage, it may be advisable to move all your belongings to a secure facility for cleaning and storage, and to make room for restoration or construction. ServiceMaster Restore will work with you and your insurance claim representative to manage this process seamlessly.
Some high-value items require restoration by specialists. Working with your insurance claim representative, we can help you identify these items and locate a qualified restorer.
Occupant and worker safety is ServiceMaster Restore’s top priority. During the initial inspection, safety hazards are identified and addressed, including debris removal, air quality, electrical issues, slip and trip hazards, etc. Burnt equipment and electrical devices are separated out for disposal, and questionable electrical equipment or devices are unplugged and tagged for evaluation of safe operation. Electrical power may have to be turned off in the entire facility until evaluation by a licensed electrician is completed.
