What can be salvaged after a house fire


Fire departments respond to 354,400 homes affected by fire each year. Property damages are an estimated $6.9 billion each year. Fires and smoke destroy everything it consumes, and it seems like there’s no choice but to search for a new residence. Restoration companies like iFlooded Restoration assist homeowners after fire-related events. 


What can be Salvaged after a House Fire?

Depending on the severity of the fire, in some cases, glass and metal items can be salvaged. Let the professionals at IFR inventory your contents and determine what is salvageable. 

What to Throw Away after a Fire

It’s important that you don’t throw anything out until your insurance carrier has an inventoried itemized list of the unsalvageable contents. If you throw it out before we get to inventory it we won’t be able to claim it which means you will likely not get compensated to replace it. 

Home Fire Insurance

The average home insurance policy covers fire damage with four property types. It covers repairs and replacement of the home and attached garages. The second coverage involves detached property like barns, sheds, garages, and fences. It will cover loss of use which is the coverage that is a part of every standard policy and helps you pay for everything from fuel expenses to groceries and hotel bills while your home is being repaired or rebuilt. If you rent out your property, loss of use coverage may also help you recover lost rent if a covered loss requires your tenants to live elsewhere. The last coverage involves the belongings you own. To be sure about home fire coverage, review the home insurance policy with the home insurance agent. Don’t worry if the document didn’t survive the fire; the agent likely has a copy. You can also let us do the contacting for you.
