Just as holiday celebrations enter the picture this time of year, so do fire hazard threats. Florida has officially entered the high season for fire losses, the time of year when too often our careless mistakes combine with dangerous natural conditions to create holiday hardship for both residential and commercial properties, according to the American Red Cross.

Florida poses an especially unusual fire risk because of its sheer volume of condo units and other multi-family complexes. And condo homeowners and property managers take notice: your association may still be struggling to make insurance payments and meet other obligations due to the downturn in the real estate market. Be sure to review for fire loss insurance policy coverage and purchase necessary first-party property coverage this season, as more property owners increase their electricity and heating requirements.

"Clean your chimney, check those smoke detector batteries, and keep an eye on that space heater and don’t overload holiday lighting circuits or use old or frayed extension cords,” warns claims adjuster Rick Tutwiler.

If you do experience a fire during the holidays, consider hiring a professional claims adjuster that works for you. Fire recovery has become a complicated property insurance claim involving the valuation of contents, clean vs. repair issues and ever aggressive investigations and demands for documents from insurance carriers trying to protect their interests and expose fraud. A public aduster can make sure you comply with these demands and get a fair settlement at the same time.

Have a safe and happy holiday.
