Storms can cause an immense amount of expensive damage to your home and health and safety hazards. However, a strategy to quickly deal with the aftermath can help you minimize your risks. Here are three steps you should take immediately after experiencing storm damage to your home.
Take Safety Precautions
Physical hazards from storm damage can occur like standing water, collapsed roofing and shattered glass. In addition, moisture can soak into furniture or carpeting and create mold growth. If you experience extensive damage, you may want to contact a property restoration company to make repairs to make your home safe to live in. While work is being done, make arrangements for a place to stay to avoid injury or illness.
Photograph the Storm Damage
If it is safe to do so, take as many pictures as possible of the storm damage with your cell phone or camera. These pictures can be used as evidence for your insurance company to help pay for the repairs. Before you file an insurance claim, contact Signature Home Services for a free inspection to ensure notifying your insurance company is necessary.
Notify Your Insurance Company
If the storm damage is extensive enough to file a claim, the next step is to notify your insurance company. An adjuster comes to your home to assess the extent of the damage to pay for the necessary repairs. Signature Home Services can work with the insurance adjuster during negotiations and the repair process.
