When a fire strikes, the damage often isn’t limited to the effects of the flames. Additional harm may be caused by smoke, soot, and water from the fire-fighting efforts.

Your itemized insurance claim should include all items damaged during a fire, including those that may have escaped the flames, only to incur damage from smoke and water. The public adjusters at Goodman-Gable-Gould/Adjusters International know how to document and categorize all of your business’ losses.
