Fire is one of the most common causes of property damage, resulting in serious problems for homeowners, businesses and commercial property owners. In addition to damage from fire and smoke, there may also be problems related to the process of putting out the fire, such as water or chemicals inside the building, and potential damage to the building’s structure, electrical and heating-cooling systems.

Some of the important actions to do after a fire loss; get an incident report from the fire department, take pictures and do not throw “anything” away. Inspections and investigations are critical to ensure coverage is extended and proper payments are made to you.
