Fire Tips

It’s a natural instinct to want to clean up after a fire has occurred, but improper or prolonged actions can actually jeopardize or severely hinder adequate restoration. The following information will offer some helpful tips on how to deal with the aftermath of a fire:

  • Never go back into the affected areas of your home or business until fire officials have confirmed the property is 100% safe. Once emergency personnel has cleared your home/business, only enter if completely necessary. While the fire might be out, there are other safety hazards you might encounter.
  • If fire officials deem it unsafe to return to your home or business, you should make arrangements to stay with family or friends until deemed safe.
  • Once you’re allowed back inside, open all windows to ventilate the smoke and to help the drying process.
Insurance Purposes

Once you’re allowed back on the premises, check your insurance policy and then contact Americon Incorporated. When you check your insurance policy, you’re going to want to check for Out of Home Living provisions. Some things you can do to prepare for your insurance claim:

  • Take pictures and/or video to properly document the damage that has occurred.
  • Keep a list and/or pictures of any household property you had to throw out due to the fire.
  • Save receipts for any expenses related to the fire loss.
Perishables
  • Never consume any food items that have been exposed to smoke, or any canned good items that have been exposed to excessive heat.
  • Discard ALL food items that have been exposed to fire damage or smoke damage.
  • If the electricity has been shut off, empty freezers or refrigerators completely, and prop the door open with a rolled towel or newspaper.
Household Items
  • NEVER turn on or use any appliances or electronics until an electrician has inspected and deemed it 100% safe.
  • If possible, avoid being on carpet. Also, avoid wiping or cleaning ceilings, walls or other absorbent surfaces.
  • Keep doors that are affected by the fire closed to try and limit smoke odors from spreading.
