The fire has been extinguished, now what do I do?
Contact your insurance company immediately. It is your responsibility to begin loss mitigation, including steps to prevent the damage from getting worse. Take inventory of damaged goods before discarding anything and save receipts for money spent related to the loss.
Can I clean my own home after I have experienced a fire or smoke damage/loss?
In many cases attempting the cleanup process yourself will only make matters worse. Certified technicians have the experience, training and knowledge to assess the damage and restore your belongings.
What should I do if the fire causes broken windows or damage to my roof?
Quick Response Commercial has the capabilities of performing emergency service board ups. Securing your property is an important step in preventing further damage. If the fire causes a power outage in your home, make certain that you inventory and dispose of any items in your refrigerator. If the fire occurred during the winter months and you anticipate being without power for any significant time, Quick Response can make arrangements to have a plumber winterize your home, again preventing further damage as a result of broken water pipes.
My home will need repairs and I am unable to stay at the home while the work is being completed. What will happen to my belongings?
Quick Response and Quick Response Commercial can handle the project from start to finish. First, Quick Response will complete a “pack out” of your home. All salvageable items will be itemized and removed from your home. Your contents will be brought back to our 15,000 square foot heated, secured warehouse. Here they will be deodorized and cleaned. The items will be stored here until you are ready to move back into your home or they can be brought to your temporary living location. Quick Response Commercial can handle all phases of repair, including demolition and rebuilding.
