You may not know where to turn when disaster strikes, but it’s important to act quickly to reduce the damage to your home. Smith & Son’s Contracting offers 24/7 home emergency services in the event of water damage, fire damage, storm damage, and more disaster restoration services. Follow the steps below in the immediate aftermath of a disaster and call Smith & Son’s as soon as you can for assistance.
Secure Your Home
Water, smoke, fire, and more can continue to damage your home even once the immediate threat has subsided. If possible, board up entry points to reduce the amount of damage to the interior of your home. Do not complete this task unless the immediate danger has subsided. If you do not feel safe securing your home, wait until members from Smith & Son’s arrive at the scene.
If you can, remove your belongings to a safe, protected area. It’s important to note that your life is more valuable than any property you may have in your home. Do not risk your life to save a television. If you can safely do so, remove salvageable goods and property from the disaster location.
Once the disaster has subsided, inspect your home and property. Take photographs of the damage and keep a detailed list of damages. This list and the pictures will come in handy once you make a claim with your insurance company. After you inspect your property, contact your insurance provider to begin the claims process.
