2020 started with intensity with fires in several states, including Utah and Colorado. The fire season lasts nearly three months longer now than it did in the 1970s.
Over the past decade, the state has spent an average of $3.7bn a year fighting fires. 2020 is the fieriest year yet, amid a record-breaking heatwave. And with disturbing trends in global warming to consider, our wildfires are getting steadily worse. Add to that the treating of casualties, the cost of rebuilding and restoration, and one understands the severity of the situation.
In California, fires this year have destroyed more than 8,200 structures. And that’s just California. Even if you were in another part of the country, away from wildfires, who’s to say that you couldn’t suffer the same fate, that your home, your business, your factory or your church could easily be impacted.
Fire damage can ravage a home unexpectedly, destroying structures, possessions, and even lives in a very short amount of time. Smoke odor and damage can affect areas of the property not immediately touched by the fire itself. Structures may be seriously weakened by fire damage, and toxic fumes may linger for days after the actual event. Rapid response and cleanup is necessary in order to prevent long term damages to the property as well as repairing damage and returning the property to its pre-loss condition. But however bleak the present may seem, if you can help your property survive the chaos and damage then you are one step closer.
