Storm Damage Restoration in Columbia & Lexington, SC

When disaster strikes, it often leaves devastation in its wake. However, understanding the nuances of disaster and storm damage can help you make the right decisions about your recovery process. Kingsley Water Damage Restoration is here to guide you through the storm and out the other side. If you need emergency storm restoration services, contact us now.

One critical distinction to note is the source of the damage. If the damage is caused by floodwater, the coverage generally falls under FEMA. Conversely, if the damage originates from wind or rain from the roof, seeping into your home, this typically falls under your homeowner’s insurance. Understanding this difference can expedite your recovery process and help you navigate insurance complexities.

Once you’ve ensured the safety of your family and verified it is safe to enter your home, follow these steps:
#Step 1

Contact a Water Damage Restoration Company

Amidst widespread natural disasters, many restoration companies may be busy if they don’t have the capacity to help every customer. Call around and get on as many waiting lists as possible. Time is of the essence and the faster you act, the quicker your home can be restored.

#Step 2

Contact Your Homeowner’s Insurance Company

File a claim as soon as you can. Obtain your claim number, as well as the adjuster’s name, phone number, and email. This information will be critical for coordinating restoration efforts.

#Step 3

Secure Your Home

If your property has broken windows or sustained roof damage, take immediate action to board up your home or tarp your roof. If this is beyond your ability, reach out to a roofing company to secure your property until permanent repairs can be made.

#Step 4

Document the Damage

Photograph your home, the damage it sustained, and the contents inside. Confirm with your insurance company whether you have content coverage, separate from structural damage coverage. Do not dispose of any affected items until your insurance company or adjuster gives the green light—they may need to assess these items for coverage determination.

#Step 5

Inventory Damaged Items

Begin documenting damaged big-ticket items like appliances, electronics, and furniture. Your insurance company will require specific details including make, model, and serial number for repair or replacement considerations.

#Step 6

Arrange for Storage

Contact a self-storage facility, or as a last resort, a storage container company to store your contents during the water mitigation and reconstruction process. A climate-controlled facility can protect your belongings from further damage while they are out of your home.

Remember, Kingsley Water Damage Restoration is your dedicated partner during these challenging times. Our expert teams are ready to help you navigate the restoration process, offering guidance and professional services to bring your home back to life.
