You want to make sure that the insurance company pays to replace everything, and that it doesn't cost you a fortune to get rid of everything and clean up the damages. Here are some of the things you want to do when the dust has settled and you are ready to go back into the building.

Take Pictures

The insurance adjuster will have to go through the building and try to total up the amount of losses throughout the space. Make sure that you take pictures of all the damages, and try to get pictures of the remaining of items, so you can prove how many things were in the space and how much the items were valued at.


You should first go through the building and recycle as much as possible. Electronics will have to go to an ewaste recycling center, glass to a specific glass location, and other materials may not be recycled at your local center. Many electronics or other items will have piece and components that are still valuable. Find out how you can recycle as much as possible, so you don't have to pay for all of these items to be disposed of at a local waste center. You may even be able to get cash for some of the metal items in the space you want to get rid of.

Restoration Options

There are a lot of variables when there is a fire, and the building could have damages from the following things:

  • Fire and smoke damage
  • Water, mold and mildew from putting out the fire
  • Powder and extinguisher marks from putting out the fire

A restoration company may be able to come to your building and save some of your furniture or other items in the building with their cleaning services. They can remove staining, discoloration, odors and other flaws, to help save money by preserving items.

There are a lot of different things that you need to do to save money after a fire, and to make sure that the insurance company knows the extent of the damages that you are dealing with. Talk with the professionals and do what you can on your own to lower your costs.
