When a disaster strikes, it can leave your mind swirling with thoughts. You may primarily be focused on the welfare of your loved ones, with worries about the shape of your home another largely consuming concern.

As you begin to sort things out, thinking through how to start and handle your insurance claim process may not even be on your to-do list. Even if it isn’t, the faster you can start the entire recovery process, the better.

Our team is here to help you put all the pieces of your life and your recovery back together. We will make managing your insurance claims process simple.

Start Fast, Document Often

When it comes to disaster cleanup, the faster you can move, the better. Every disaster will be different and come with its own unique challenges, but the sooner you can respond, the less damage your property will incur. Make sure you keep safety as your first priority. Stay away from floodwaters, downed power lines and potential hot spots after a fire.

Make sure your loved ones and neighbors are safe, too, so that any emergency needs can be addressed right away. Clear roads if you can safely do so to allow for vehicles to safely pass.

When you feel comfortable that everyone is as safe as possible, call our SERVPRO® office and start your recovery. We will take a lot of information over the phone while we also mobilize a team to your property with the equipment necessary to restore things back to normal fast.

Once our team is headed your way, start assessing the damage done and take as many photos as you can. When it comes to insurance claims, the more documentation you can provide, the smoother you process will be. If there is something you need to fix before our team gets there, make sure to take note of what you did in order to provide that information on the claim later.

Leave It to Our Team

When our team makes it to your property, we will immediately start securing your home in order to prevent further damage and keep the elements out. While we tarp your roof or board up broken windows, we will also look through all of your pictures and other documentation in order to add anything additional you will need for your claims process. Our staff is well-trained in the requirements that insurance companies carry, which means we will take every step possible to make the claims process successful.

While we work through your recovery process, we will create an itemized list of your losses. Because we are certified in insurance inspection standards, all of the work we complete will be to the highest degree. We also make it a goal to restore as much of your property as we can so that you have less to replace. Whatever we can do to keep your cost low and your insurance claims process easy, we are going to do it.

You can put your recovery into the hands of our team and know that everything, including your insurance claim, will be as easy as it can be. We will work hard to get your life put back together so you can get back to normal.

When a disaster strikes, call us to make your recovery process—insurance claims and all—simple.
