09 Dec Do You Have a Home Inventory Checklist?
As the Fall season moves on the cooler weather moves in. It’s now time to fire up the fireplaces, turn on the furnace, and get that space heater out of storage. However this can increase the risk of home fires.
There were about 364,500 residential fires in 2011, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. That’s nearly 1,000 residential fires a day. The total financial loss? More than $6.65 billion.
For property loss alone billions of dollars are lost each year to fires, and that does not include the millions of hours lost collecting information, filing claims, and proving losses so that you, the homeowner, can get paid by your insurance company.
A home inventory list can save you time and money when filing a claim. Especially after experiencing a loss when it can be difficult and stressful to figure out what items are missing and or damaged. Being able to run down a checklist after a fire would make the process faster and less traumatic. It’s easier to know what is missing from your home if you have a list of everything in it.
