As we dive deeper into spring, the chance of inclement weather increases. Some would welcome the beauty and peace of rain, while others have had quite a different experience. Regardless of our viewpoint, we can all agree that storm damage repair can be a daunting and sometimes dangerous task. Here are some tips to help in the unfortunate event that you are dealing with storm damage.

Turn off your power before cleanup

Even in the instance that nothing electrical is visibly broken, the best thing to do before cleanup is to shut off the electricity to your home. Often, it is in the places we don’t expect that can harm us the most, and something with the potential danger of electricity, you will want to take every precaution you can. Locate your fuse box, turn off the main breaker along with each individual circuit breaker. This is especially important if your home is flooded. 

Board up windows

Strong winds, and fallen trees. One of the most common damages a storm can cause is broken windows. As soon as possible you will want to board up any broken windows to secure your home. This will help keep out looters, rodents, and help to prevent any further weather damage. There are ways to board up your home that can potentially cause more harm, so be sure to consult a professional before taking on the task of boarding up your home.

Take pictures

As they say “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Before any cleanup ensues, be sure to take plenty of pictures of the damages caused. This will aid you greatly in filing an insurance claim. Taking plenty of photos is the best form of evidence to accurately show damages, and obtain the most from your insurance company.
