Do These Five Things After a Flood

7/19/2019 (Permalink)

Living Room Flood Water Do these five things fast to minimize damage, hazard and expense after you suffer a flood.

Disaster has struck, your home is flooded and you need to figure out what to do—quickly! These five essential tasks to start with that will make your recovery from a water disaster safer, easier and faster.

1. Halt the Damage

Cut power to your home at the circuit panel. Inspect the exterior of your property for signs of potential danger, like a collapsed roof. If you are not sure that the home is safe to enter, stay outside.

2. Gather Your Documents

Be prepared by gathering your important papers ahead of time, including:

  • homeowners’ policy records
  • documentation of flood insurance, if applicable
  • personal identification
  • proof of ownership

3. Create a Record

Document the condition of your home through words, pictures and videos. If the property deteriorates after the initial damage, update your information. Keep receipts for all your flood water repair - associated purchases and expenses.

4. File Your Claim ASAP

The sooner you start the insurance claims process, the sooner you’ll get your expenses covered.

5. Begin Repairs

As soon as possible (ideally within 48 hours), remove the water from your home and completely dry the structure and your possessions. A specialized professional disaster remediation company like SERVPRO of Bloomfield/Enfield will do this job quickly and thoroughly.
