Have your Property Insurance Adjuster Help You With Lightning Damage
Lightning Damage to South Florida homes is real and it can be the cause of a lot of grief for some families. Each lightning strike carries 100,000 or more volts and it can cause various amounts of damage to your home. Lightning damage can affect your home in two different ways. The direct hit of a lightning bolt can cause significant damage and even start a fire. The indirect hit can be carried by power lines, phone lines, and even plumbing.
Florida has a reported 1.5 million lighting flashes a year, according to the National Lightning Detection Network. In addition, that gives us 26 lightning strikes per square mile in Florida. With statistics like these, the likelihood of lightning damaging your home can quickly become a shocking reality.
Lightning can damage everything from your electrical system to physical damage like a fire. Your electrical system can be affected by lightning as well as anything that is plugged in. Most homeowners have some form of surge protection for their computer and entertainment center electronics. However, most of your appliances do not. That’s right, your washer and dryer, refrigerator, electric oven, and your central heating and cooling system can be affected by lightning as well.
