Insurance Tips For Making a Storm Claim
Here at SERVPRO of Mount Prospect/North Des Plaines, we work closely with many Insurance companies. One in particular is American Family Insurance. Here are some tips from them on making a storm damage claim.
Act Quickly. Filing a claim with your insurance company in a timely matter is very important. Most insurance policies limit your time to file a claim, so being quick is essential. You will want to repair the damage before it has a chance to get worse.
Review your policy. Every insurance policy and claim is different. If you know what your policy covers, you will be better prepared to plead your case.
Document everything. Keep a log of the storm and the damage. Do NOT start to clean up until you have documented as much of the damage as is safe and wait to handle the big messes until a claims adjuster has assessed the situation.
Mother nature likes to shake things up and if your home didn't weather a storm as well as you'd hoped it would, keep these tips in mind to help you along the way.
