Step 1: Initial Inspection-
If possible, it’s always good to have your Insurance adjuster present during the first initial inspection but it’s not necessary. We work for you and will work with your adjuster to make the restoration process go as smoothly as possible. It is best if we can all meet at the same time so we can all be on the same page regarding the cleaning and restoration of your home or business. Once the inspection date is set, our Production Manager will meet with you at your home or business to inspect the damages and discuss the cleaning process. They will guide you through step by step, so you know what to expect.
Once the inspection is complete, they will go over the authorization form and a customer information form to be signed prior to beginning the restoration process.

We will make sure that all fire damage is cleaned, repaired, or removed and leave your home or business "Like it never even happened." Because that is the SERVPRO® way!
After you, the Adjustor and SERVPRO of North Prince William County have chosen the correct course for your home. SERVPRO will begin the cleaning process of your home or business.
