Be thorough when documenting damage

Your insurance policy will likely cover losses you experienced in the fire. With that in mind, your first job after experiencing smoke damage in a fire is to thoroughly document your losses and damages.

Make a list of information that includes all of the following about your property:

-Date of Loss

-Type of Loss or Damage

-Location of Damage

-Any Related Injuries

-Others Involved

-Condition of the Home

-Description of Damaged Contents

-Whether or Not Temporary Repairs or Complete Replacements Are Necessary

-A Police and Fire Department Report

Remember: your insurance company likely requires you to contact them within a certain amount of time after a loss has occurred. Make sure you know that amount of time and file your insurance damage claims on-time.

During the insurance claims process, you’re likely going to exchange hundreds of emails and documents with your insurance company over the next few months. Make sure you document everything. Get a binder or good storage system, to start and keep things as organized as possible.
