Claims due to Fire or smoke damage can be the most devastating claims possible. In many cases fire damage to a property can result in a total loss of the property .ie. the building will have to be totally demolished and re-built. In less drastic cases where the fire has been contained to one or two rooms the resultant smoke damage will find its way to every corner of the property which can cause damage to all the décor, soft furnishings and clothes that are in the property. There may also be damage to the property from the emergency services efforts to extinguish the fire such as water damage or a broken down door. Following a fire the insured has a lot to deal with, from securing the damaged property from further damage to looking after distraught family members, to finding alternative accommodation. It is therefore important to appoint a qualified and regulated Loss Assessor at an early stage who can relieve you of the added stress of dealing with an insurance claim.
