Claiming and Cleaning Smoke Damage

There is a saying that where there's smoke, there's fire. But that is not precisely true; sometimes, smoke damage can occur without visible flames.

Smoke causes various types of residue, dirt, and bad smells. It is a homeowners nightmare, and even at its mildest, it is a big headache to clean. Then you must learn how your homeowners insurance will cover a smoke claim. What Is Considered Smoke Damage?

Smoke damage includes both odor and physical residue left behind from burnt materials and includes different types of dirt, smoke odors, and even toxic particles. Some of the common smoke damage properties that require cleaning, repair, or replacement include walls, ceilings, window treatments, clothing, bedding, furniture, jewelry, art, books, and photographs.

Your home insurance covers smoke damage and professional cleaning. The most important thing for you to do, other than file an insurance smoke claim, is to pick the best public adjuster to assess your damages and a smoke remediation company to remove the smoke damages.
