Fire and Smoke Damage- A Devastating Loss
A fire can easily cause more damage to your property than you can ever imagine. In addition to the building going up in flames, the raw heat can be overwhelming, as well as the resulting smoke and soot. Even the water that may have been used to put the fire out can do an enormous amount of damage to a structure. Last but not least are the electrical system and the air conditioning unit, both of which will most likely need to be completely replaced.
When making a fire damage claim, there are several items that need to be considered. What affirmative steps should you take and which ones are not worth your time? When exactly should you take those steps? How will you understand the details of your insurance policy? Who is responsible for the fire and what should be done about it? Certainly you will need professional assistance to answer all of these complicated questions and you can rely on Pinnacle Claim Services, Inc. to successfully guide you through each and every one of them!
