Fire loss - preparing to be away from home for an extended time
Many residential structure fires require the homeowners to live elsewhere while the repairs to the home are made. This is not only stressful, but can be challenging when trying to consider what might be needed. The following is our suggestions for a long term (more than 2 weeks) term: A "season" of clothing should be processed by the textile vendor as "quick turnaround" which is usually only a few days.
In a heavy soot fire, mattresses and box springs are also generally replaced. As for hard content such as dishes and flatware - the content vendor can usually also do a quick turn here and get at least a kitchen back to fully functional in a week as well.
Upholstery and furniture generally takes a bit longer - which is why we suggest a furnished home or apartment to be rented if possible, and most homeowners policies can easily cover such expense.
