Fire Damage Insurance Claims in Baltimore

Your family’s safety should be the most immediate concern in the event of a residential fire, but once the smoke has cleared, you might start thinking about how your property has been damaged and how you will restore your home. Filing a claim with your homeowner’s insurance will be one of the first steps to help you get your life back on track after a fire, as your insurance can cover services from The Mold Dr., which serves Baltimore and the surrounding area with mold remediation and construction services. Read on to learn what you will need to know when you file a claim to cover the damage following a fire.

Types of Damage Following a Fire

AAside from fire damage from the fire itself, you might see damage from smoke, water, and holes cut to create easier access during the process of extinguishing the fire. Before you begin to address any of these sources of damage, you will want to contact your insurance agent to learn the proper process of filing your claim. Some insurance companies will have you go ahead with restoration right away, while others will ask that you make a list of everything damaged in the fire before seeking professional restoration services.

Possible Consequences of Water Damage

Water used to extinguish the fire will cause the most pressing damage to your home. Water damage can worsen quickly, since bacterial and fungal growth can happen fast and create a hazard for your health and the integrity of your home. Below, you can see the specific ways that water might complicate the restoration process after a fire.

  • Structural weaknesses – Water can seep into wood and drywall, causing warping and weakness that might require extensive construction to repair. It is important that you work with an experienced water damage repair contractor to address the structural damage to your home, since inadequately restored areas may cause a significant safety hazard.
  • Mold and bacterial growth – Moisture and standing water create an ideal environment for mold and bacterial growth, especially if a water restoration specialist is not contacted right away to dry and clean the area. Clearing the home of any mold after fire-related water damage is important, because mold poses a number of health hazards such as respiratory illness and allergies.

Filing Your Insurance Claim

Once you call your insurance agent, you should be able to select restoration services to repair your home. If fire damage is extensive, you may need to stay in a hotel while your home is in the restoration process. Whether you have limited fire damage or your whole home has sustained damage, The Mold Dr. in Baltimore can provide you with prompt service and assistance sorting through your policy coverage.
