Document Your Belongings Before a Disaster

As a prudent homeowner, you likely did comparison-shopping to get the best possible insurance to protect your property. But what about protecting the valuable items that you store in your house? What happens if there is a disaster and your possessions are ruined? The professionals at American Restoration want to remind you that you probably already have a tool to document your possessions quickly and efficiently.

Record Your Belongings for Future Reference

The smartphone you rely on to stay in touch with friends and family with videos is also suitable for recording all that you own, noted a report from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. American Restoration’s disaster specialists remind you that you can also use the built-in camera of your tablet or laptop. Describe what you’re recording, including the date, your name and address. Slowly pan the camera over valuables, such as jewelry, high-end electronics, and rare works of art.

When you’re done documenting your valuables, save the video by copying it to a computer hard drive, your cloud account or a flash drive that you can store elsewhere as a backup. Then, if your home is ever damaged by a fire or flood, you’ll have the video evidence you need to prove what you owned to your insurance company.

At American Restoration, we’re proud of our ability to help restore a property to its pre-damage condition. We love to see families eagerly move back into their homes after a disaster. If your home has suffered damage, rest assured that we can take care of the situation for you. For details on our services or to set up an appointment, give us a call today!
