Steps For Restoration Following Hurricane Damage In Your N. Okaloosa Area Home
SERVPRO Provides Emergency Water Removal, Cleanup, and Restoration for Our Santa Rosa Beach Area Neighbors After Tropical Storms
Now that the tropical storm has passed through the area and dissipated, N. Okaloosa and the surrounding regions are getting their first look at the destructive nature of this storm system. While the primary focus up to this point was the safety of those around you throughout the dangerous situation, many homeowners and business owners are unsure of what to do next. Here are some things that you should consider when it comes to rebuilding your life in the wake of a hurricane.
While you might not know how to recover all of the damages your N. Okaloosa area home sustained from the effects of Hurricane Gordon, there are some steps that you can start taking now to get the process started for restoration work and moving forward. One of the first things that you need to do, even before you contact restoration specialists like our SERVPRO team is to contact your insurance provider for your home.
They are going to be able to talk you through your policy and how it pertains to damages sustained by a hurricane. In many cases, there is a deductible that varies depending on your policy that requires you to pay a portion of the expenses needed to restore your home following severe storm damage like this. You need to speak with the appropriate personnel from your insurance company to determine your role in getting your home back to preloss conditions. SERVPRO always can coordinate the cleanup and restoration after a tropical storm with your insurance adjuster and you for determining the scope of the service.
One way that you can help to expedite this process is to document the damage that you can see. Photographs and accounts of the damage can help to speed up the claims process with your insurance company, and get experienced technicians like our SERVPRO team on site as quickly as possible to begin repairs, restorations and clean up.
Recovering from the damages of a hurricane is not something that any homeowner ever gets prepared to face. Fortunately, with the experience and rapid response of our SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties restoration technicians, it is not a situation that you have to face on your own. Call us at (850) 267-0746.
