Are You Disaster Prepared For Fire Damage To Your Contents?

10/12/2020 (Permalink)

Fires leave homes in devastation. Even the smallest fires damage contents and make them not salvageable. Creating a household inventory list is a daunting task. But if a fire does strike, having a list can help cover the ruined items on your insurance policy. 

Where Do You Start?

Your standard homeowners insurance policy most likely does not cover your contents. If it does, it might cover less than the full value of your belongings. If you have expensive items you may talk to your insurance agent about more coverage. 

 Here are some tips for getting started:

  • Have a plan–  Go room by room and give yourself a deadline to make sure it does get done.
  • Take pictures– Take several shots of each room. Open drawers, closets, and cupboards and photograph all of your contents.
  • Keep receipts–  Receipts can verify more significant purchases  & help when determining replacement value.
  • Be specific– Details matter; the more detailed you are in your descriptions, the better. Also, record serial numbers.
