Steps to Take After Storm Damage
With tornadoes and heavy rain extending into the later months of the year, storm damage can occur any time to your home or business. While these storms can cause structural and water damage, they also pose safety and health hazards. Having a plan to deal with damages is important for your safety and the cleanup of your home.
The first thing you should do after a storm, is to take precaution when assessing the situation. Look for structural damage and broken items on the property that may be dangerous. It is important to note any smells of gas, and shut off the main line if you notice a leak. Microbial growth can also happen within 24 hours of water damage.
Once you know the severity of the damages, make sure to document everything as is with multiple photos for your local restoration provider and insurance. This will help to assure that you are fully compensated for the mitigation and restoration process.
