Tornado and Water Damage to Your Oxford, Batesville, Clarksdale Home or Business
When you think about tornadoes you normally just think of the damage from the high winds. Each tornadic event is different but if it was a quick moving storm with lots of rainfall your home or business could be left with water damage as well. If you have experienced storm damage here are some steps to get you started in the clean-up process:
Safety of Structure: Inspect the quality of the structure and make sure it is safe. Not only could there be potential fallen debris but depending on the amount of rain there could be electrical hazards.
Access Damage: If the structure is safe take the time to walk it and see what all is damaged, so you can see a complete picture of what is going on in your home and be able to let your insurance company know.
Contact Insurance: As soon as you can, contact your insurance to let them know you have experienced damage to your home or business. Make them aware of what you are seeing and go over your coverage, so you have a better idea of what they will pay for.
