In 2017 fire response teams were called to over 160,000 fire incidents. With domestic properties making up roughly 60% of those fires. Fire damage can make a house inhabitable forcing you to find separate housing until restoration is complete so efficient Fire Restoration is vital.
From worrying about costs of repairs to possible secondary housing costs there are many factors in fire damage and restoration. While most damage will be easy to detect, some unforeseen damages could be the real financial drain.
Water damage from extinguishing fires can wreak havoc on interior electrical systems as well as contribute to structural damage. Repairing electrical systems is an expensive situation that requires expert electricians adding more costs on to the restoration. These hidden damages need to be detailed on the first inspection or risk not being accounted for in an insurance claim.
Public Loss Adjusters offer a complete and extensive fire restoration and insurance claims management service. We manage the entire process from insurance claim to recommending specialist builders for your restoration services, so you don’t have to worry.
When a fire occurs insurance companies usually send a loss adjuster and then a surveyor to assess the damage. Building companies may then be invited to submit a tender with the expectation of potentially being appointed to take on the fire restoration work. Local builders may not have the experience with fire damage repair. However, when you choose Public Loss Adjusters an expert specialist is sent to assess the damage who may then recommend a competent building company. The loss adjuster will ensure that every detail of damage is discovered to ensure a comprehensive claim is settled.
