Home Fires and Insurance Claims
A home fire that damages the structure but does not completely destroy the home is known as a “partial loss”. These types of fires can create a unique set of circumstances when it comes to your insurance claim. Some areas that you should pay special attention to include:
- Hidden Damage – (water, smoke, ash, mold, contaminated ducts)
- Inadequate Cleaning/Repair Methods – (this can be avoided by using a qualified, professional IICRC Certified company)
- Delays – make sure your claim is not given low priority in relation to other claims where more damage was sustained
