What To Do After a Storm Hits
No matter how prepared you may be for the forecast, storm damage to your property can happen at any time. Knowing what to do when the unexpected happens can help save time and money for you, as well as keep you and your loved ones safe.
- Take Safety Precautions: Be aware of any potential physical hazards to your property. Is there standing water? Are there collapsed walls or ceilings? Any broken glass or exposed nails? Be careful when traversing through your property. If necessary, arrange an alternative place to live in.
- Document the Damage: If it's safe to do so, take photos of whatever damage has occurred to show to your insurance company. SERVPRO can also do this for you and keep documentation to submit with your claim.
- Contact Insurance: Notify your agent about damage to your home immediately. An adjuster can determine the extent of the damage so payment can be made for the repairs. We at SERVPRO work with many insurance companies to ensure a seamless claims process.
