The United States Fire Administration (USFA) says that our country has a fire problem because we have should be able to prevent more fires (residential, commercial, and wild) than we do. Further, contemporary homes are made with plastics and other materials that burn hotter and faster than wood and other natural materials, so residential fires can be more dangerous.

Therefore: when the smoke alarms go off: get out of the house.

We hope, of course, that any fires are small and easily contained.

You may be surprised at how much damage even small fires can do to your home.

If a fire does blaze through all or part of your home, call us -- SERVPRO of Gold Coast/Lincoln Park/Lakeview – as soon as you can. Smoke damage tends to get worse over time, and not even much time at that.

After a Fire

The American Red Cross reports that residential fires are one of the most stressful events a family can go through. Contact them for resources to help you cope.

Things to Do:

  • If the fire was substantial, you and your family members should seek medical care for check-ups. Don’t forget your pets; they may have suffered from respiratory damage or burns as well.
  • You may need a place to stay.
  • Don’t go into the house until the firefighters say it is safe.
  • SERVPRO of Gold Coast/Lincoln Park/Lakeview provides board-ups, roof tarps, and temporary fences. We also provide temporary power if you need it.
  • If you haven’t contacted your insurance company, don’t worry. We take care of that as well.
  • SERVPRO of Gold Coast/Lincoln Park/Lakeview also provides pack-up and move-out services in addition to temporary storage.

Things NOT to Do

  • Don’t discard items as unsalvageable. Our team members often surprise homeowners with what they can repair and help to restore.
  • Do not try to move heavy furniture or other objects yourself. We have equipment that allows us to do that safely.
  • Don’t disconnect or connect utilities unless you know you can do so safely. People come before things – always.
