fire damage insurance claims

It’s most people’s worst night – but fires do happen, and they can often cause significant destruction to your home or commercial property.

If your building or its contents have been damaged in a fire, you’re probably wondering what on earth to do next. Your Claim can pick up the insurance claims process on your behalf to ensure your case is dealt with quickly and correctly. We can even help get things back to normal in the interim by arranging alternative accommodation, appointing tradesmen, and managing repair and restoration works, so you don’t have to.

The dangers posed by fire damage

Aside from the obvious danger to life from smoke and fire, these elements can pose a threat to the very fabric of your building. Blackened walls and burnt furniture are the problems you can see, but heat, smoke and combustion can damage hidden parts of your property, from gas pipes and electrical circuits through to brickwork and steel supports. The sheer volume of water needed to extinguish the fire will often cause additional problems with damp and flooding, too.
