Their team has outlined the following tips on how to handle post-disaster property restoration:

1. Document the damage 

If you have a basic insurance plan that can cover the cost of the property restoration, then it’s vital to call your insurance provider to inform them about the disaster before you begin the restoration process. The insurance company will advise you on the claims procedure and give you details on restoration firms affiliated with them if any.

They will typically send representatives to inspect the damage. However, you'll have to document the damage as proof since most disasters like water damage, fire damage, mold, storm damage, and floods result in more damage as time goes by.

2. Call for help

Property owners are always helpless in the face of flood disasters. Buildings damaged by storms, floods, and cyclones need to be repaired quickly. 

However, cleaning up after a disaster can be stressful, and most property owners are not cut out for it. Instead of attempting to handle the restoration process on your own, you’ll be better served by hiring property restoration services.

Contact a professional disaster restoration company like SERVPRO of Hurst-Euless-Bedford to help clean up your property as quickly as possible. They’ll clear out the water, soot, smoke, and mold in the event of a fire or water damage and get your property back to a habitable state in no time.

3. Protect your valuables

Move unaffected furniture, equipment, and any valuable items out of the way to make space for the property restoration.

Most items will likely have soot, smoke, or water damage when dealing with fire damage or flooding. Nothing should be stored without first being thoroughly inspected and cleaned to remove any moisture, odor, and other impurities. 

Most property restoration companies offer content restoration. They will clean and dry any affected belongings to get them to their preloss state.

4. Commence damage mitigation

Disaster damage mitigation involves securing your property to stop further damage. Most property restoration companies start with damage mitigation, which will involve cleaning soot, smoke, water, boarding damaged areas, and more. The restoration process always depends on the type of disaster you are faced with.

Water damage restoration will require clearing any standing water using pumps, then cleaning and drying the property structures and affected belongings, dehumidifying, and sterilizing to prevent mold formation.

5. Rebuilding and reconstruction

The next stage, after securing your property and stopping further damage, is to start rebuilding any damaged parts. Most disaster restoration companies offer rebuilding and reconstruction services as part of their disaster restoration packages.

They’ll first assess the level of damage and provide you with a quote to fix everything from your damaged roof to broken pipes, burnt walls, damaged ceilings, and so on.

These services are extremely beneficial as they save you the time and effort of hiring each expert individually. The companies will work with third-party restoration experts to rebuild all damaged parts of your property and get it back to its preloss state.
