Recovering From A Winter Storm
What To Do If Your Property Suffers A Winter Storm Damage
Even if the blizzard was so destructive that damage occurred to your home regardless of all the preventive measures you had taken, there is no room for panic. Just keep your wits about you and make no hasty decisions. Assess the situation carefully and act accordingly to put your property back in shape as soon as possible.
First, ensure the safety of all family members – make sure no one enters a damaged area in a desperate attempt to rescue some of your household items. Remember that no property loss is even remotely comparable to having a loved one injured. Find a shelter where everyone will be safe and warm – it can be an intact room in your home or a neighbor’s, friend’s or relative’s place if the damage was extensive or some danger (such as fire hazard) lurks in your residence.
Contact your insurance agent immediately after the storm is over. Have a representative of the company come over for estimates at the earliest opportunity and ask for required documents. Provide all the relevant information and gather convincing evidence of the ruins caused by the winter storm.
