Safety Is The Priority
Your heart and mind are flooded with conflicting feelings as you view your damaged home. Part of you wants to run the other direction, and part wants to begin sifting through whatever remains of your belongings. However, it is vital to remember that your safety is the priority. Never enter a damaged structure until it has been deemed safe by professionals. The Renovation Pros team will arrive equipped to evaluate the damage and sort through the items that can be salvaged for you and your loved ones.
Documentation Is Essential
After such a tragic event, it can be challenging to think clearly. However, it is essential that you immediately begin documenting everything for your homeowner’s insurance claim, any federal aid, or other organizations that can assist with a natural disaster. Photos of the outside of the house, yard, and other structures are vital if you can safely access these areas. Also, compile a list of names and numbers of the people you are contacting for assistance to have fast access to the information.
Preventing Further Damage And Health Concerns
Once you have access to the inside of the house, it is essential to begin thinking about moving forward with clean-up and safety precautions. Water and moisture damage is one of the first concerns, as these moist items can foster toxic black mold growth in less than 24 hours. Therefore, removing all wet objects, including furniture, personal items, carpets, and curtains, is a priority.
It is also important to note that you should never enter the house without proper personal protective gear to prevent any injuries or illness due to the contamination. The experts from Renovation Pros have years of experience in evaluating the damage, removing moist or otherwise damaged items, and cataloging all of the issues for your insurance claim. We hope that our services can reassure you and help keep you and your loved ones safe from any potentially harmful conditions.
Protecting Your Home
Before the Renovation Pros team leaves your home, we will protect it from the elements and any intruders. It can be necessary to preserve the area until your insurance company representative can complete an inspection or make further arrangements to move forward. Our staff will be glad to take care of this task for you and help you plan your next steps to correct the damage to your home and return it to your safe haven.
