What to do after you've experienced a house fire
We have seen with our years of experience how difficult it is for homeowners to process after fire damage to their home. If you experience an emergency fire damage in your Chula Vista home, we advise you to follow these 3 steps:
- Make sure everyone is safe
If your family is all together, take a moment to see if anyone has been injured that you didn't notice. If you have pets, it is recommended that you take them to a Veterinarian as their lungs can be affected by smoke. Once everyone's health is in order, be sure to take a moment to clearly assess the situation.
- Secure the house
If the fire has exposed multiple openings, the first priority for restoring your home is the deck. This is to prevent the property from deteriorating due to bad weather or unauthorized persons entering your home.
