Important Documents To Replace After Fire Damage
SERVPRO understands that one of the biggest headaches after a fire in your home or business is the loss of important documents. After taking the steps in calling the three most important places found in the last blog post, the next thing to focus on should be replacing the important pieces of documentation that went up in flames.
The most important documents to replace:
- Driver’s License
- Bank Paperwork
- Tax Records
- Vehicle Registration/Title
- Social Security Card
- Birth Certificate
- Damaged Money (damaged cash is exchangeable with the treasury for undamaged cash)
Fire Damage Safety
We understand that you may want to try to recover your important documents after fire damage had occurred. We want to make it clear that it is important to ask the onsite firefighters if you are allowed back onto the premises of your home or business after fire damage has occurred. When fire damage occurs, the structure weakens, causing materials to look more sturdy than they are. The last thing we want is for you to have to recover from a preventable injury.
Have you experienced a fire and contacted a fire restoration service yet? Give us a call to schedule an appointment. If the situation is an emergency, give us a call 24/7 at (770) 992-2777.
