Storm Damage Storm Damage Restoration and Response Time Storm Damage in New Jersey

Storm damage to your home due to flooding, wind, hail can be devastating.  Water can travel quickly throughout your home.  Knowing that immediate action is needed and having the right restoration contractor can be the difference between cleaning up your home quickly or having unnecessary and additional damage due to mold growth or secondary damage. 

Safety precautions

Is it safe to stay in your home?  Water and electricity don't mix.  Intrusive water is a safety concern, if possible turn all power off.  Do not try to turn on appliances or lights.  Also wet materials are very heavy.  Saturated drywall and carpets can make lifting materials very stressful to your back, joints and muscles.  Most importantly is to make sure anyone that is in your house is safe.  Safe from electrical hazards and falling debris from ceilings.

Contacting your insurance company

It is important to call your insurance company as soon as possible.  Insurance companies will want to assess the damage quickly.  They will want you to give an accurate description of what happened.  If it all possible, take pictures of the initial damage.  Ask questions so you can fully understand the claims process and your rights.
