It is often recommended to reach out to our SERVPRO professionals even before you speak to your insurance provider about filing a damage claim. Our can arrive quickly, 24-hours a day, to begin a thorough inspection and assessment of your damaged property so you have strong documentation of all the damage involved, which the insurance company will require. By recording both damages and loss, as well as taking photographs as evidence of the damage caused by the fire, our team can provide you the information you need for your insurance company with the documentation required to approve a damage claim you file.
SERVPRO can start the mitigation process
In addition to helping the claim to get more quickly approved by having thorough documentation provided to you, we can begin mitigation work in your home immediately with our initial arrival. This approach ensures that you and your property don’t have to wait for mitigation that can protect contents and unaffected areas of your home that could become damaged in the time after extinguishment. Initial fire damage is bad enough but left unattended for a long period of time, damage can get worse.

These are why immediate mitigation is a must!
