Reporting Your Damage

Contact your Insurance Company or Agent immediately to report your claim, try to have your policy number available. Most companies have set up specialized 800 numbers to immediately help you with your claim needs. These numbers are up 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If you are unsure of the number, your best bet is to contact your local agent or check the front of your policy. It is imperative to report your claim as quickly as possible.

The insurance carrier will need details of the damage i.e. fire, water, what rooms are damaged etc. Prepare a list of personal property that was damaged or destroyed in the loss. Your claim representative should provide forms that describe the information needed to determine your loss.

Mitigation

Take reasonable steps to protect property from further damage. Most policies require you to mitigate your loss. After notifying your insurance carrier contact a mitigation specialist such as The DAMEX Corporation, to help with the mitigation.

There are many steps you can take to minimize the impact of a loss at home:

If your home has suffered water damage, make sure that the water has been shut off. Move all your possessions out of the affected areas and then make sure that as much water is removed as possible. If water damage is from sewage, do not try to go into the affected area as you might contaminate other areas in your home. It is imperative to have a professional mitigation company such as The DAMEX Corporation to help with this.

In the case of either fire damage or water damage, protect the safety of your family and pets by keeping them out of the damaged areas.

In case of fire and smoke damage promptly report your loss. Do not try to clean the damaged items, as sometimes cleaning things without the proper equipment and chemicals can do more harm than good. Your insurance company will direct you to contact an emergency mitigation company such as The DAMEX Corporation to help you with this.

In any type of loss timing is critical. Contact your insurance company immediately and then contact The DAMEX Corporation to help with all necessary mitigation steps.
