Gather These Things Before the Next Storm Hits Marlborough

11/12/2021 (Permalink)

Storm clouds and raindrops on a windshield Recover faster from storm damage! Long before a storm hits your Marlborough home, take time to gather and protect important information.

Year-round, storms and natural disasters upend people’s lives and destroy their homes and property. Nobody’s figured out how to stop these major events from happening, but there are some tried and true things you can do to prepare your home and family to get through the next storm safely and with as little damage as possible.

Storm prep does not just mean taking concrete steps when a storm is on its way, either. It starts much sooner and, ideally, you’ll have much of the work done way before the forecast turns stormy. Gathering important information ahead of time is one way you can put yourself in a better position to smile when you tell stories about the big storm that you survived.

You’ll want to give yourself some time to gather your information, so think about dedicating part of a weekend to the task. Trust us: you’ll be glad you did.

Safeguard the Information You’ll Need After a Storm

If your home or property is damaged in a storm or natural disaster, or if you and your family must evacuate your home, you’ll need quick access to important information.

  • Insurance: As your personal and financial circumstances change, it’s a good idea to confer with your insurance agent to determine if you need more or different coverage.
  • Inventory: Get your phone out and walk through your home, room by room, taking photos and videos of any possessions of value. Make a list as you go, jotting down model and serial numbers, purchase dates and amounts, and appraisal values (for jewelry and art). Ideally, you can assemble a digital document, complete with photos and videos, that includes all this information. Store that digital file both in the cloud and on a thumb drive, and print out at least one copy. After a storm, you can re-photo anything that was damaged to document the before-and-after condition to your insurance company.
  • Important documents: Keep copies of your family’s important papers in a fireproof, waterproof, lockable and portable box. These may include IDs, birth certificates, passports, marriage certificates, insurance policies, auto titles, bank and mortgage records, proof of vaccination and your home inventory. If there’s extra room in the box, you can add important digital records on thumb drives, photos and other meaningful items.
  • Damage remediation: Before the storm hits is the best time to decide who you will call for storm damage cleanup and repair. SERVPRO of Glastonbury/Wethersfield is the reliable local option with the training, equipment and staff to thoroughly and quickly restore your home and possessions to before-damage condition.
