After a disaster, there will be a whirlwind of thoughts for you to sort through. It’s likely you will find yourself consumed with thoughts about the safety of your family and friends, all while you wonder what kind of damage has been done to your home and community.

With so much to handle all at once, the idea of filing an insurance claim is probably one thought that won’t come very quickly. You may not want to spend time thinking through how recovery is going to happen when you have so many other things to think about, but the faster you can get restoration started, the better.

Our team is ready to respond to your property around the clock when a disaster strikes. We will handle all the pieces of the puzzle you haven’t even thought about yet so you can get back to normal.

Start Fast, Document Often

When it comes to disasters, timing will always matter. The sooner you can get on the path to recovery, the less damage will start adding up. Make sure you are keeping your safety and the safety of your family as your first priority after a disaster, though. Stay out of floodwaters, steer clear of hot spots from a fire and avoid downed power poles.

Whether you are sheltering in place or you evacuated, don’t leave safety until officials have given an all-clear. Immediately after a disaster has passed through, check on your neighbors and loved ones and call for any emergency services that are needed. As soon as you know everyone is OK, call us at SERVPRO®. We will start putting together a team and the equipment needed to tackle your recovery from the moment you call us.

When you can safely navigate around your property, take as many photos as possible. When it comes to insurance claims, documentation is the name of the game. If you do need to repair something before our team gets there, make sure to take detailed notes on what you did and why you did it. The more information you can provide, the better.

Leave It to Our Team

Upon arrival at your property, our professional team will start securing your home in order to keep the elements out and prevent more damage. At the same time, we will start working directly with your insurance company. Our crew is not just trained in disaster repairs, but we are also highly trained in how to handle meeting insurance claim expectations.

All you have to do is leave it to our team. Our professionals will get your life back on track and your home back to exactly the way it should be in no time. You can put every aspect of recovery into our hands—even ensuring your insurance claim process is smooth and fast.
