Commercial properties of all types are susceptible to fire and smoke damage. Loss due to fire also includes damages caused by smoke, soot, heat, and the water used to extinguish the fire. All of these damages can combine to make a business unable to remain open.
When a commercial property is affected by fire and smoke damage, unknown details can allow insurance companies to be very slow in making reparations to the policyholder. With proper guidance from a licensed public adjuster, a business can receive fair treatment and a fair settlement to ensure that the doors re-open in a timely manner.
