Who Should Your First Call Be?
Whether the fire is small and contained to a kitchen area, or large and has caused massive damage to the entire building, we recommend that you contact your Insurance Company to review coverage. Your next step should be to contact a Restoration Company. Our large crews that are on call 24/7 will be able to come and board up any openings in the building so that the building can be deemed safe and the emergency crews can leave. At this point we will help you assess whether or not it makes sense to use insurance to help with the costs of restoration.
Often, a small fire is better paid for out of pocket instead of involving insurance, and may even cost below your deductible amount. A claim on your insurance could raise your rates; or worse they could drop you from coverage. It is up to you whether or not you will submit a claim – we can help be explaining just how much work needs to go into restoring your property.
Alpha Omega will Get the Work Done
After a fire, there’s more to the restoration than simply putting paint over the fire damaged drywall. Even when the visible fire damage isn’t extensive, the fire has released chemicals into the building that have to be cleaned properly.
We will act as the General Contractor for the entire job. Whether it’s complete reconstruction, or cleanup and repair, we have the tools for the big jobs. This includes in-house employees who specialize in their trades, and local, trustworthy sub-contractors to provide expert craftsman service when needed.
Prevention is Key
Before you ever need our services, preventing a fire in your building is the easiest way to keep your business from suffering any setbacks. Of course nobody ever wants to suffer from a catastrophic loss, but too often fires are caused by preventable incidents.
Ensure that your building is inspected regularly. Make sure wiring is up-to-date and that electrical components aren’t faulty. A full building inspection may seem like a pain at first, but it’s much easier than going through the disaster restoration process. A clean building is a safe building. Don’t let dirt and messes cause a disaster.
Remember, if your business needs to be rebuilt quickly, call Alpha Omega Disaster Restoration; we have been proudly serving Billings, Montana and the surrounding areas since 2006.
