What Is Fire Damage?
Fire damage can be caused by many different things, such as a fire in your home, business, or vehicle. For example:
- A fire in your home may cause smoke and soot damage to the structure of the place where it started.
- A fire might cause water damage to your home, business, or other nearby structures.
There are many other types of fires that can result in property damage—and each type of fire has its own unique problems associated with it.
The process of estimating a fire damage is an important first step to recovery.
It gives you an idea of the scope of the damage and how long it will take to repair. The estimate also serves as a starting point for negotiations with your insurance company, which can lead to more money for your claim.
The amount that you receive from your insurance company will be based on several factors: what type of structure was damaged by the fire; whether any materials were irreparably damaged; whether or not there were injuries associated with this incident; and what caused the blaze (for example, arson). These factors are all taken into consideration when determining how much money should be paid out by an insurer after they've received an estimate from a certified technician.
