Steps to Take After a Storm
If your home or business has been affected by a serious storm, it can cause a huge obstacle in your life that could be extremely overwhelming and traumatic. Here are some steps to take in the hours and days after a major storm to make sure your home or business are not only safe to occupy, but is also properly returned to its preloss condition.
- Safety first: Be mindful of any harmful situations such as downed power lines, flooding, or problems with your gas lines. These situations may be hazardous!
- Analyze your damage: Be sure to thoroughly inspect every room in your home or business to see if there is any damage, including closets and storage areas. Look behind and under any furniture, especially if it is against an exterior wall.
- Document the damage: Be sure to take photos of the interior and exterior of your home or office, as well as the contents, so you can have plenty of evidence when it is time to file an insurance claim.
- Contact your insurance company: You will have to file a claim and get assigned an adjuster who will come assess your damages.
