Before Your Insurance Adjustor Arrives
Although monsoon season is officially over, there is still the likelihood that Scottsdale and Rio Verde can receive scattered rainstorms during the Fall season. It may not be as constant or as intense as the monsoon storms we receive, but it’s safe to be prepared for the inevitable just in case. It is beneficial to know what to do should a flooding issue from a storm arise.
Call Your Insurance
If your home is experiencing flooding from a storm, your first call should be to your insurance adjustor and alert them of the situation so you can file a claim.
Next, you’ll want to call SERVPRO of Scottsdale. We are available 24/7 when standing water is involved which means no matter what, we will do our best to send a team of technicians out as soon as we can. During this process, SERVPRO will assess the damage and perform water extraction to prevent further damage to your home. We will also complete an itemized list of damages for your insurance claim.
Make sure to document the damage and take as many pictures as you can. If mold occurs over the next few days, be sure to document that as well for your insurance claim.
By taking immediate action and being proactive when a flood takes place in your home can help lessen the damage and keep it from getting worse in the long run.
