Fire Damage Repair and Restoration

SERVPRO of Northern Sussex County understands paperwork is important.  All homeowners and renters should have a list of “must haves” and “like to haves” — items they will need, or want, after a disaster affecting their home or business.

Key documents to take with you include:

  • Mortgage documents or rental agreements.
  • Homeowners, renters and automobile insurance policies.
  • Financial statements and account numbers.
  • Copies of prescriptions for medications.
  • Tax records.

Have proof of valuables, too

In addition to having access to key documents, it’s important to have proof of your valuables when filing insurance claims.

Go room by room through your home or business, writing down the contents and making special note of things like antiques, jewelry and collectibles.

Keep one copy of the inventory at home and a second at another location, such as with a relative, at the office or in a safety-deposit box. The list should be updated periodically, with receipts kept for big-ticket items. Having photographs or videos of your possessions is crucial. Without that evidence, it’s difficult to even know how many shirts you had.

If you need to file a claim after a disaster, the inventory, receipts, photos or videos can help verify the existence and value of your belongings.

But the key is advance preparation. If you’ve made an inventory, you'll have lots of peace of mind.
