Over the past couple of years, wildfires throughout our country have claimed the homes and businesses of thousands of people. As the imminent danger of the flames subside and are extinguished, many residents and business owners are left dealing with the bi product of the devastating fires—namely residual smoke, ash and soot. This lingering effect may not appear as dangerous as a wall of flames, however, in the long-term, it very well may be more dangerous.
Smoke and ash damage is virtually impossible to detect unless you know how to look and where to look. In addition, smoke, soot and ash damage is more difficult for the average homeowner to prove, if they even know it exists. Most damage is not visible to the naked eye and thus insurance companies pretend it doesn’t exist.
Without doubt, the majority of property damage from a wildfire is caused by residual smoke, soot and ash, not the actual burning of structures. Regardless if your home or business suffered no actual fire damage the smoke, soot or ash can still result in compensable property damage.
