Storm Damage Resources
We have all dealt with storm damage in the past, and since we live in an area affected by hurricanes, we will probably deal with them again in the future. We all know what to do in order to prepare for a hurricane, but what do we do after the storm has passed? It is just as important to have a post-storm plan, as one before.
Here are a few things to do immediately after the storm has passed and it is safe to do so.
- Before you clean up, take pictures and videos of all of the damage, inside and out.
- Start removing anything that is wet or holding water, followed by debris from your home.
- Have your insurance policy and contact information ready to go so that you can contact them right away.
- Start making any repairs that you can in order to stop future damage.
Remember that if a storm does damage to your property, it probably did to many others as well. Get in touch with your insurance company as quickly as possible to get the claim started. We all remember events in the past where it took weeks to get someone out to look at the damage. Having a plan for after the storm can help keep you on a track to getting back to normal as quickly as possible. The team at SERVPRO of New Orleans & MidCity is here to help.
