Summary provided by video transcript.
Today, we’re on-site at a fire claim. Lightning struck this house, getting everything boarded and cleaned up. Let’s go check it out.
So, the first steps in a fire claim is always going to be stabilization. We’ve got debris in the yard we need to get taken care of. We’ve got windows that are broken, garage doors that are blown out. We need to get this place stabilized in order to make it safe, A for the neighborhood and B for anybody entering the property after us. Follow me inside, and let’s check out the process we’re about to do in here.
So we’re here inside the home. The first step on a fire claim is always going to be creating a pathway through here so that we can get our Matterport equipment in here. What Matterport is, is a camera system that tracks everything in here and puts it all into a 3D image. So even the details on this will get caught by that Matterport camera, a very cool technology. We like to do this. It helps the insured and the insurance company.
The second step on a fire claim is going to be clean up. Obviously, we’ve got falling down drywall, insulation. We’ve got the roof that’s falling down in here as well. The goal is going to be to get everything cleaned up and out of here as soon as possible. The other thing that we have to do on these fire claims because when the firemen come in with their water, the entire house gets soaked. All this drywall’s got to go. We’ve got to get everything down to bare stud and start drying the structure out.
Step three on a fire claim is going to be all of your contents in here. You’ve got two categories. One is salvageable. One is non-salvageable. Each and every item in here, no matter which category it falls into, has to be documented, photographed, and put onto a list. So when it enters the home again, after rebuild, everything will be accounted for.
All right, we’ve shown you the downstairs, which is primarily a lot of the water damage that happens during a fire. Let’s head upstairs and look at the origin of this and how we’re going to put it back together. Step four, in a fire claim, is going to be stabilizing the structure, so no further damage happens in here. The way that is accomplished is removing all of the damaged wood in here, all the damaged roofing components, all of the drywall, all the doors. Everything that’s had water hit it or fire hit it has to get out of here immediately. The second part of that is getting in here and framing up a temporary roof system with a tarp on here to ensure that no more water gets into the structure.
