Fire Damage Medford
House fires create a lot of stress on the homeowners. Your personal belongings are destroyed, family heirlooms could be gone, and most importantly, the property could be destroyed and unsafe to enter. After your home fire, you should wait until you get clearance to enter the property from the fire marshal who will enter the structure and make sure it is safe to re-enter your home. After a home fire, it's important to grab your essential emergency items, so you have a change of clothes and personal belongings.
Protect Your Home
To protect your home, you want to cover and board up all exposed areas damaged by the fire. Boarding up could be windows, doors, the roof, or other areas. Emergency board up repair will secure your home from potential inclement weather or vandals entering and looting your home.
After A Fire - What To Do Next
Not many homeowners have to deal with a fire, luckily. When you do, it's likely the first time ever having a fire to your home, office, or business. Here are some things you want to consider have a fire:
- Don't enter the structure until the fire marshal has cleared the structure.
- Don't grab any canned good in the area of the fire. A heat source will spoil the canned good and should be thrown out.
- Close, board up and protect and exposed areas in your home. You will likely need a restoration professional to aid on this service.
- Don't try and clean the smoke and soot yourself. The oil from the fire and soot can actually damage your contents and walls if not cleaned correctly.
- Call your insurance agent to file a claim, this will help speed up the restoration process and get an insurance adjuster assigned.
What Our Customers Are Saying
February 2018, I had a water burst in the kitchen of my rental property. Nightmare - and I was not in town. I found Service Masters on a google search. When I called (after hours of course) the phone was answered immediately by a human! Good sign. Service Masters worked with the Insurance company and with me all the way through the project. After the kitchen was completed...more damage was found in the bathroom (it is an older home). I proceeded with Service Masters for the bathroom project also. The results are amazing! So fantastic that I don't even regret that this all started with the sudden burst of a water line in the kitchen. A nightmare turned into a living dream. The home is gorgeous now. Service Masters communicated with me all the way through. Every department supported me with every question and concern that I had. When doing my taxes for the 2018 year, Shannon and Karl tirelessly answered all my questions about the breakdown of costs. I can't say enough in a positive way about this company. Service Masters "YOU ROCK!!!!!"
Service Master came into my home to clean and deodorize after a smoke mishap. The job took about 4 weeks. I have to say that I was not looking forward to having people in my home for this duration of time. Tyson Holman was in charge of setting up the job and was articulate about explaining what would need to occur in order to clean the home. Tyson was also considerate in understanding my special needs for non toxic cleaners and went above and beyond to come to the house and show me different cleaning product options (on New Years Eve!). Alyssa Radke was my point person who took over coordinating the clean up with such a keen eye for the detail and organization. She systematicaly coordinated the entire clean up, communicated in ways above and beyond what I was expecting. Alyssa kept me updated on her arrival time every morning, the daily and weekly cleaning goals, as well as when she would be finishing for the day. Alyssa kept me updated on every aspect of the project with such open lines of communication and transparency. I trusted her completely to be in my home when I was not there. I cannot say enough about her work ethic, communication, personality, and core spirit. This speaks to the values of this company and I would recommend ServiceMaster and specifically Tyson and Alyssa to anyone!
Such a great company. Kept me informed of the work and repairs they were making. Took the extra effort to keep unaffected areas clean. Our little water claim was taken care of in a timely manner. Highly recommend this company.
Kitchen fire project. Service Master staff was great at helping with insurance coverage and getting all aspects of smoke and physical damage done quickly and coordinated well. I wish I had started with them rather than a contractor who didn't really care about providing actual service. Highly recommend.
Tyson was an incredible help during our recent fire and smoke damage claim. From investigating and collecting estimates, to cleaning the house thoroughly and beautifully, to setting up work for the other vendors to perform to bring the house back to pre-fire condition Tyson worked relentlessly. I am so grateful for his expertise and hard work!
