Dealing with Fire Damage

House-fire-150x150

My house had an electrical fire when I was in the third grade, one week before Christmas. It was very scary as a child. I will never forget the way it felt to see my mom crying outside the house completely helpless while the firefighters did their best to control it. It felt like everything was gone. Thankfully no one was hurt in our house fire. We only lost things. I go through these feelings every time someone calls into Clarke Contractors with fire damage. I understand how they must be feeling but I also understand how they will be feeling. You get new things and your home gets fixed. It is never the same again; that doesn’t mean it won’t ever be as good again. Technology has come far since that day in December when my house suffered fire damage. The items my family was able to salvage have smelled like smoke from then on. Boy, have times changed. Clarke Contractors has trained professionals that salvage your contents back to their pre-fire condition.

We can restore appliances, electronics, furniture, clothing, paper items, photographs and the list goes on and on. We also have the ability to inventory your contents into three categories: Salvageable, unsalvageable and disposable. We also offer online access for insurance companies and homeowners to view the ongoing restoration process of their contents. This is a long way from my mom’s loose leaf paper list that she made while walking through our home after our fire.

Clarke Contractors is a family owned business so we understand the importance of a home and family. Our professional staff has helped many families and businesses through this anxious time. We help homeowners and business owners every step of the way throughout the emergency and the restoration process. We will assure that your property will be repaired to the highest quality of craftsmanship by working closely with your insurance agent and adjustor. Fires don’t just happen Monday- Friday 8AM-5PM. Clarke Contractors has on-call emergency managers 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.  Our on-call emergency team can be at your home and starting to work as soon as the fire is out. It is our goal here at Clarke Contractors to make the restoration process move quickly and as professional as possible.
