What Happens After a Major House Fire
Recently, we had a homeowner that had a major house fire in San Diego. When the fire trucks put out the fire, there's still water, soot, ash, and debris everywhere that has to be dealt with. The challenge is that there's a human element to processing such a major event, yet there's a lot of different things happening at the same time. A fire marshall will come in and inspect the property to see what the cause of the fire was. In cases where the fire is related to gas or electrical, SDG&E has to come in and work on the property to make sure that your connections are off if necessary.
Most homeowners have insurance for their house, so if that's the case, an insurance adjuster will most likely want to walk through the house and see the extent of the damage that the insurance has to pay for. They will also work with a vendor or whoever is ultimately the contracting party to set up construction and make sure the home is restored to preloss condition. Since we are preferred vendors for most major insurance companies, call us first since we are certified in fire restoration and can consult with you on the right steps to take as the work follows.
