Frequently Asked Fire Damage Questions
Fire damage refers to the destruction and harm caused to a property as a result of a fire. Fire restoration encompasses a series of steps aimed at evaluating the extent of the damage, securing the property, and restoring it to its pre-fire condition.
Throughout the process, fire restoration professionals work closely with the property owner and insurance providers to ensure a smooth and efficient restoration process. Their goal is to bring the property back to its original state, minimizing the impact of the fire and enabling the occupants to return safely.
Fortunately, in most cases, home insurance policies provide coverage for fire damage to both the structure and personal belongings. However, it's important to be aware of certain situations where your insurance provider might not cover the losses.
It's important to understand that each fire damage situation is unique, and the timeline for restoration is influenced by factors such as the size of the property, the extent of the damage, the availability of materials and contractors, and the complexity of the restoration work required.
On average, the restoration process can range from a few weeks to several months. For minor fire damage, restoration efforts may be completed within a few days. However, in cases of extensive damage, particularly in severe residential incidents, the restoration process may extend up to a year.

Review by Jason G.
“A client/friend’s house caught fire the other day and every time this happens, it is always a very traumatic experience. The devastation on their faces and their be-wilderness is a very common reaction. The feeling of loss and being lost is understandable, so it is during these occasions where I have to be there for them.
The first thing I did was to calm them down and called Servicemaster. They do mostly restoration and clean up after a fire/flood/water damage etc. They are not general contractors. They only clean up, restore, and house your personal belongings at their storage facility. They will store it there until the house is back to live able condition. Best of all……….the insurance company will pay for it.
They can usually get to a place within 3 hours of the loss. They are very efficient.”
