A house fire can be very traumatizing. But, now that you and your family have made it out safe, and the firefighters have extinguish the fire, it’s time to deal with the aftermath! 

This can be a very overwhelming task (especially since you’re under so much stress)! Still, know that you can count Zott Construction in Stormville to give you a plan of action of what needs to be done next.

What to Do After a House Fire


Stay Away from Your Home

It may be tempting to run back in to see the state your home and things are in. Still, this can be dangerous: there can be harmful fumes or the structure may have been compromised. Only go back inside if the Fire Department tells you it’s ok to do so. Speaking of which...

Follow the Instructions!

This is a very stressful time for you, but you need to understand that you should always follow the authorities’ rules. For example, firefighters need to do reports for which they’ll ask you and your family questions. Be cooperative so everything is sorted out as fast as possible!

Make Some Phone Calls

Let family members know what has happened and the condition you and your family are in. Keeping them informed will give them peace of mind and they can act as support system during this difficult time.

Also, make sure that you call your insurance so they can start working on getting your home back up again!

Get a Temporary Home

Depending on the type of insurance you have, they’ll probably pay for a hotel where you and your family can stay for the time being!

If not, ask friends or family to take you in while your house is being remodeled. Make sure to tell them how long it’ll take for your home to be done and ask if they have any inconvenience with it.

Replacing the Important Stuff

It’s probable that a lot of important documents may have been lost in the fire. If this is the case, then it’s time to start replacing them! Anything like passports, your driver’s license, or even your credit cards, should be substituted at once.

Seek for Professional Help!

As mentioned before, house fires can be a stressful and traumatic experience! You may not notice it at first, but it may leave a trail in your mental health. So, be sure to visit a psychologist to help you and your family deal with this tragedy in a healthy way.
