Debris Removal

Definition - What does Debris Removal mean?

Debris removal is a service that removes various types of debris from a property. In the context of insurance, the cost of debris removal is often covered by property insurance policies. However, this cost is usually only covered if a covered peril causes the debris.

Insuranceopedia explains Debris Removal

Debris can accumulate on a property for a number of reasons. For example, a house could burn down, causing the buildup of charred wood debris, or a tree could fall down on a property, or a hurricane could knock parts of a house off, and so on. Insurance companies recognize that the removal of debris can represent a financial burden, not to mention the cost of the repairs to the property. Thus, debris removal is often included in property insurance policies for covered perils.
