Dallas fire damage to your office has struck. It has been on fire.

The insurance company should be the first call you make. This is even before the last hot spots are knocked down by the fire department.

We help you with your paperwork and claims to relieve your stress allowing you to focus on resetting your business.

A few of the steps you can take, after that call to a fire damage restoration company includes:
• Check with the fire department before re-entering the building to locate business documents, secure electronics, business machines, furnishings, and inventories. By allowing SERVPRO to assess quickly and record the fire damage, the technicians can start to extract water from the fire extinguishing efforts to mitigate on-going loss. 
• Gathering the ‘fire report’ from the fire department as this is needed for your insurance company and is also helpful to you in understanding what next steps will expedite your business reopening.
• Get all of the utilities turned off. Electrical connections, after a fire, can be dangerous and also damage devices. Water lines should be off to ensure that pipes don't burst, or the fire-suppressant sprinkler system does not reactivate.
• Locate another office space to conduct your day to day business dealings, if this is appropriate. Customer, client, and staff focus by you will keep your business viable until a return to normalcy.
