We are in the week following Tropical Storm Imelda, and this is the most important time for homeowners affected by the storm and flooding. Please follow these 5 steps to ensure you are moving in a positive direction, while dealing with such a stressful event!

 

1. Safety Is Key - You may be forced to remove yourself from your home is the damage/flooding is significant enough. Be sure that your electricity is turned off, and that you cover yourself appropriately. Rubber boots and gloves help with this, as flood water is highly contaminated with chemicals and debris. Some might add that if you came in contact with flood water, to call your doctor and consider a tetanus shot. You may be asked to boil your water for some time.

 

2. Remove The Water From The Home! - Whether you use bins, buckets, or pumps, you need to be sure to remove as much of the water as possible.

 

3. CALL YOUR INSURANCE AGENCY! - You need to call your insurance agency and report everything! File your claim and speak with your agent on your next steps! You need that professional opinion!

 

4. The Home Needs To Be Dry - You can purchase dehumidifiers just about anywhere. These need to be set up so that the moisture can be removed from your home.

 

5. Document EVERYTHING! - Store all valuable papers that have been damaged in a freezer until they are needed (After your cleanup, consult your lawyer to determine whether flood-damaged documents, or just the information in them, must be retained). Record details of flood damage by video and photographs.

 

We hope these tips have helped, and our hearts go out to everyone affected by TS Imelda! We will start working together, as a community, to help everyone get back home!

Unlike working with a captive or exclusive agents, independent agents work for you, not for the company that currently underwrites your policy. That affords us a lot of flexibility with servicing your account.

When you represent only one company, the rules are pretty straight-forward. There is one company, one set of underwriting rules and one set of rates. This limits their ability to provide options.  Independent agents work with multiple carriers allowing us to move your coverage when a better fit is needed.
