Fire and Smoke Damage Claims South Florida
Property can be greatly impacted by fire and smoke damage. It doesn’t matter if it is a small or huge fire; the aftermath of both is devastating. Fire and smoke damage can run rampant through your home, or the home itself can be completely destroyed. You may not know where to turn or what to do next, and that is where an adjuster can help you.
In an attempt to make it easier in the event that an emergency happens, prepare and evacuation plan for your family and make sure everyone knows the plan and what to do. Most importantly, stay calm! Take photographs and even video of your home before any damage occurs. If you have personal property in any location, make sure it is photographed for insurance purposes. Keep a fire extinguisher in your home. This will allow you to mitigate the flame before damage is intensified.
If there is severe damage to your home after a fire, do not stay there! There are many health risks that you can encounter, and the home itself may not be stable. The home needs to be tested by a professional to rule out any negative chemical changes in the area. It may take a few weeks to get the result, but you definitely do not want to inhale carbon residue that may be present after a fire occurs.
There are many causes in the Florida area for fire damage. Lightning is common, and if it strikes your property a fire could be started. In cities with older buildings and homes, outdated electrical equipment could be the cause of a fire. This is primarily seen in locations like West Palm Beach, Miami, and Fort Lauderdale. If you have a smoker in the house, the risk of fire is always increased due to carelessness, or even falling asleep with a cigarette lit. No matter how the fire starts, the most important part is how fast it is extinguished. Keep alert and keep your property!
