What To Do Immediately After Storm Damage

7/26/2019 (Permalink)

You'll recover from storm damage faster if you have a strategy in place to stay safe and act fast.

When a big storm threatens, have a strategy to deal with damage and safety hazards immediately after the storm. The upheaval may seem overwhelming, but these steps can help you begin the process of restoring your home, and your life, back to normal.

First, Be Safe

  • Be very cautious around physical hazards such as collapsed roof materials, damaged windows, collapsed walls or standing water
  • Beware of broken glass, exposed nails and other sharp objects on the property
  • Shut off the main gas line if you smell gas
  • Contact a reputable property restoration company like SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield to secure your property and make it safe for your family’s use
  • To prevent mold growth, dry out furniture, carpeting and building materials within 48 hours
  • If necessary, arrange for an alternative place for you and your family to live while your property is being restored

Speed Up Your Insurance Claim

Immediately notify your insurance agent about the damage to your home. If it is safe to move around your property, photograph or video the damage so that you have a record for your insurance company, helping you receive faster and more complete claims processing.

Seek Federal Disaster Assistance

The federal government may have declared your area a disaster area, meaning you’ll be eligible for low-cost loans to help restore your property. You will be required to file documents to receive these loans.
