    If it’s safe to do so, SGI suggests that home or business owners dealing with property damage:
  • Clean up as soon as possible. Seek professional advice on how to clean up and take whatever reasonable steps you can to minimize further damage to your property.
  • Don’t throw anything out. Store damaged items in a reasonably safe place so the adjuster can see them when they arrive. If you are disposing of items, take photos and keep a detailed list of what is being thrown away.
  • Have any appliances (including furnaces) that have come in contact with water checked by a qualified electrician, plumber, dealer or serviceperson before you use them.
  • Do not touch any electrical systems or panels until you know it is safe to do so, especially in wet or damp conditions.
  • Move damaged belongings to a dry area with good ventilation.
  • Keep track of your cleaning time and expenses as they may be covered through the insurance claim.
  • Take photographs or video of damaged property to give to your adjuster.
