What to Do After a Storm in Oakland or Macomb County

Share

It is important to react quickly after receiving wind and hail damage in Oakland or Macomb County. If it is extensive enough, water can infiltrate your home or business and cause long-lasting harm, including rotten wood, ruined drywall, soaked insulation, mold growth, and more. Responding within the first 48 hours is important to prevent long-term damage, and here are some of the most important steps you can take after a storm:

  • Ensure your building is safe – If there is major structural damage, downed power lines, fallen trees, gas leaks, or other serious problems, contact the appropriate authorities before entering the building or beginning any repairs.
  • Contact your insurance provider – To ensure your claim is processed quickly and fairly, be sure to contact your insurance provider immediately to start the claims process.
  • Document any losses – As you work to clean and repair your property, be sure to document any damage and losses with video, photographs, and copious notes.
  • Prevent further damage – If you have damaged roofing, siding, or windows, it is important to have them covered or repaired temporarily to prevent further damage.
