Step #2:  If you can safely do so, shut off the main controls to your home.  It should not be turned back on until the storm damage has been resolved and everything in your home has been dried.

Step #3: Contact your insurance company to file a claim. You should take photographs if you can do so safely.

It is advisable to get the water removed as quickly as possible to avoid added damages and reduce the chance for mold. It isn’t a good idea to wait if it takes a while for the adjuster to show up.

Step #4: Work with a professional water damage restoration company to salvage what is possible and begin repairs to the property. Most companies will work with your insurance company during this process.
