How the Fire Damage Restoration Process Works

1. Claim Process

Our Aurora fire damage restoration and cleanup service company will always help you open a claim if needed. After a claim has been opened, you will be assigned an adjuster from your insurance company. It’s up to the adjuster to assess the scope of work that will get you back up and running. It’s up to you to find the right fire restoration contractors to take care of this work.

2. Board-Up/Tarping if Needed

Board up and tarping are standard procedures to avoid any further damage from Rain/Storm/Thief's/Animals and more. Most of the time insurance covers this.

3. Testing For Asbestos/Lead

In the state of Colorado, you must get your house/unit/commercial building tested for asbestos. Even if your house was built a day ago. Testing must always be done by a 3rd party contractor. Not the fire restoration company you use to mitigate your house, due to a possible conflict of interest.

4. Your Contents and Valuables

Handling your contents and valuables depends on if your residence is tested clear for asbestos or hot for asbestos. It’s also based on what your homeowner's insurance covers. We always advise you to remove guns/jewelry/high-end valuables yourself when it’s deemed safe.

Our Aurora fire damage restoration and cleanup service company will send someone out to work with insurance to get you a dollar value of your contents for anything that they throw out. They will always get your permission first. The asbestos testing company will label anything with asbestos as hot and advise you to toss out everything that cannot be properly cleaned up after a fire. You also will get a dollar value for these items depending on your coverage.

5. Demo and Environmental Mitigation

Everything that needs to be cleaned, cleared, removed sanitized and dried will be done so by certified fire restoration contractors. When tested hot for asbestos, we will need to pull permits with the city to properly mitigate the property. There also tends to be limitations in coverage. So make sure to talk to your trusted Chief Estimator to view your policy and go over everything in great detail. Once its all mitigated it’s a clean canvas for the reconstruction.

    We make sure the unseen parts of the house, such as framing and subfloor material, are up to safety standards.

  • Odor and contamination treatment

    If the frame of your home can be saved we eliminate all microbial contamination by treating it with odor counteractants.
