Flood Damage Loss In Your Canoga Park Home
Proper Documentation of Flood Damage Loss in Canoga Park
Flooding leaves many types of damages when it affects a property. In the haste to restore things to normal, it is possible to miss or overlook some issues. Properly documenting a loss in your Canoga Park home is the only way to ensure that there are no oversights. As a professional restorer, SERVPRO takes a comprehensive approach when documenting the loss.
Documenting Loss to Help with Insurance Claims
Having an active insurance cover is the greatest reassurance to homeowners struck by flood damage loss in Canoga Park. However, insurers require proof of loss to cover the costs of restoring the damages. Our SERVPRO technicians document the loss in different ways, including taking photos inside and outside the structure before starting the restoration. We also use electronic CCIS, Content Claim Inventory Service, to record items after separating them into lists of salvageable, unsalvageable, and questionable items.
Documentation to Help Restoration to preloss State
A satisfactory mitigation process after flood damage restores the property to its preloss state. Although several steps are necessary to achieve such an outcome, proper documentation of the loss site is crucial. Our SERVPRO technicians keep records of everything, including the placement of items in a room and the colors or finishes or different surfaces. We also retain a small piece of carpet or pad removed from the damaged area so that we can get a similar type for replacement.
Documenting Helps Preserve Sentimental Value
Some of the items affected by the flooding might have value beyond the monetary cost of replacement. Our SERVPRO technicians can help save such items through specialized cleaning and drying procedures. When our team arrives at your property, the crew chief takes time to discuss the loss situation with you and takes note of any family heirlooms so that the team can take the right steps to save them.
