Your First Steps After a Disaster

Building Services Your First Steps After a Disaster You might feel overwhelmed after a disaster, but we are here to help rebuild your home!

Whether victimized by water, mold, or fire we know it can be difficult to catch your breath. There are so many questions running through your mind it can be difficult to know where to start. Oftentimes the toughest question for a person to answer is “What now?”

If your home is deemed safe to enter you might think the first step is to start cleaning. Though it may seem counterintuitive, you should not start cleaning until you are able to document the damage done to your home and belongings. The easiest way to document the damage would be to use a camera or cell phone to take pictures. If you do not have a camera available to you, or you are unable to enter your home again, your first step should be to call us here at SERVPRO of Old Bridge Cranbury and let us take it from there!

An expert at SERVPRO of Old Bridge Cranbury will document the damage done to your home, if needed, so you can receive every penny required from the insurance company. The serviceperson will also be able to advise you if going through insurance is your best course of action. It’s possible that the damage is so small it may actually benefit you to work outside of insurance. Fear of increased deductibles, higher rates, or even the cancellation of your plan might mean not involving your insurer is your best option.

Our goal at SERVPRO of Old Bridge Cranbury is to make the process as painless as possible, and we are here to help you every step of the way. After documenting the destruction we will be able to give you an honest assessment of the damage done to your home, as well as the best way to proceed with the reconstruction. The only thing you will have to do is submit your insurance claim! Your insurance may encourage you to go with one of their “preferred vendors” that they already have an agreement with, but as the consumer, you should know you have the right to pick a vendor you trust!

Disasters can be…disastrous, but we want you to know we are here to help. Try turning a negative into a positive and use the rebuilding opportunity to add a much-needed addition to your home, like a second bathroom or laundry room. Rebuilding after a disaster strikes is never fun, but SERVPRO of Old Bridge Cranbury is ready to make your home better than ever!
