Immediate steps after a STORM
Having a strategy to deal with storm damage in your home or place of business will help you immediately after a storm.
Storm damage can occur at any time, sometimes when we least expect it creating major hazards. Damage to walls, windows, roof, foundation etc. Moisture allows mold growth, that can cause health hazards, to develop in your furniture, carpet, walls and building materials. Here are a few immediate steps you should consider after a storm:
1). Shut off the main gas line.
2). Identify any sharp or broken objects on the property and try to stay clear of those objects.
3). If possible take photographs of the damage, that way you will have a record for your insurance company.
4). Contact your insurance agent. Notify your agent about the damage immediately and schedule an adjustor to come asses the extent of the damage so that payment and repairs can get started immediately.
