Hundreds of thousands of homes experience smoke and fire damage every year. If your property has suffered smoke damage, you can file a claim with your insurance company to cover the costs of repairing or replacing affected items. Filing a smoke damage claim typically involves documenting the damage, providing a detailed list of items affected, and working with an insurance adjuster to determine the amount of coverage you are eligible for. It is essential to understand your policy and coverage limits, as well as the steps involved in the claims process, in order to maximize your chances of successfully recovering your losses.
Smoke, soot, and ash can cause a variety of damages to your personal property, including:
It is important to take immediate action to address smoke, soot, and ash damage; the longer you wait, the more extensive and costly the damage can become. Contacting a professional restoration company or public adjuster can help you assess the damage and determine the best course of action.
It depends on your insurance policy. Some standard homeowners insurance policies may include smoke and soot damage coverage, while others may exclude it or provide limited coverage. It is best to check your insurance policy or contact your insurance company to determine the specifics of your coverage. Keep in mind that some insurance policies may have deductibles, limits on coverage, and restrictions on what is considered smoke and soot damage, so it is important to understand the terms and conditions of your policy before filing a claim.
The process of filing a smoke damage insurance claim typically involves the following steps:

However, here are a few tricks to dealing with insurance adjusters:
If your insurance company rejects your smoke damage insurance claims, it can be a frustrating experience. Here are some steps to take if this happens:
It is important to remember that the claims process can be complicated and time-consuming. Still, by being prepared and persistent, you may be able to successfully recover your losses.
If your smoke damage insurance claim has been denied, it can be a confusing and overwhelming experience. A public adjuster can help guide you through the appeals process and represent your best interests in negotiating with the insurance company. They can also help you gather additional evidence to support your claim and negotiate a settlement on your behalf.
Public adjusters are familiar with the claim process and deeply understand insurance policies, coverage, and laws. They work on behalf of policyholders, not insurance companies. They have the experience and expertise to help you recover a fair settlement for your damages. Hiring a public adjuster can increase your chances of a successful claim resolution and reduce the stress and frustration associated with a denied claim.

Glad I hired them. Stellar Public Adjusting assisted in my water damage claim in my condo from my neighbors pipe. They really know there stuff when it comes to claims. They obtained way more than my insurance company initially offered. A very professional company.
Worked with Stellar on a project involving a kitchen flood. They were always there to help & answer all the questions I had - and they reached a fair settlement with my insurance for me. I probably wouldn't have gotten half of what I did without them! I'd easily recommend them to anyone needing a Public Adjuster.
