After the flames are put out in your home, you are probably wondering what your next steps are going to be, and AFTERDISASTER is here to help you determine what you should do next.

Photograph Everything- As long as it is safe for you to go back into your home once the flames are out, you should take photos of damaged items. Of course, this depends on the severity of the fire and how hot it burned. You should not go into your home if you are advised not too because it is not safe.

Connect with Your Insurance Company- Reach out to your insurance company to file a claim for the damage. We recommend notifying your insurance company as soon as possible, so you can get the process started right away.

Cleanup- AFTERDISASTER provides cleanup for fire damage in North Carolina. Our team will stabilize the structure while removing soot and odors. It is vital to start the cleanup process right away because soot is very acidic, which means it is harder to remove the longer it stays there.
