Since smoke is obviously airborne, it may be carried by your air conditioning system all over your house, causing multi-room damage, resulting in an even greater loss than you may be aware of. Because of this, it is important that you consult with the right expert when it comes to maximizing your insurance settlement. A public adjuster with the proper training may be the right place to start.
Although your insurance policy covers you for smoke damage claims, it is not uncommon for your insurance company to limit their exposure by selectively scrutinizing the damages. You know your home. You know how it smelled before the smoke infiltrated into every crook and cranny. There will be items in your home which will need to be removed and thrown away, even though the item looks undamaged. We encourage you to call our office for a free inspection. If there is anything we can do to help you, we will let you know. Either way, you will walk away with knowledge and a better understanding of how you should proceed.
