We have compiled a list of some things a home or business owner should do to prevent a insurance claim from happening. Area Public Adjusters are always available for policyholders in the time of need but we want give the policyholder some basic preventative measures that could save your home from a devastating disaster and possibly save a life!
First and foremost every smoke detector should be checked at least once a month. This is the first line of defense when a fire occurs. Without a working smoke detector you and your family have a delayed response to the fire and it may be too late to escape. It is very important to have several fire extinguishers in easily accessible locations in the building or home and everyone should learn how to use them. The carbon-monoxide detectors need to be tested along with the smoke detector. Thousands of deaths occur each year from non-working devices. Check your devices the 1st of every month!
Furnace filters should be changed once every 3 months and the furnace should be serviced once a year by a licensed contractor. Another leading cause of fire occurs from clogged dryer vents. Clean your dryer vents regularly! Start by removing the hose and/or outside cover then cleaning with a special brush or vacuum. Clean the lint filter every time you do laundry.
Water leaks are inevitable. Our Public Adjusters handle countless water damage claims that could not have been prevented. Fortunately some plumbing/water damage claims are avoidable from doing some simple home maintenance. We have a few tips to help you along the way.
Check outside hose faucets for damage after a harsh winter. We always advise our clients to turn the outside water shut off valve when winter approaches. When turning the water on in the spring look for any drop in water pressure. If you feel a drop in pressure turn the shut off valve and call Area Public Adjusters.
Clean and service air conditioner units annually. Have a qualified contractor service the outside unit and clean the coils to keep the system working at peak performance. Don’t forget to change the interior filters too.
Never drop the thermostat of your home lower than 55 degrees as the temperature inside the walls where the piping is located is colder than living spaces. This will stop a frozen pipe claim during the winter months. Open the doors in unoccupied rooms to keep an even temperature throughout the house.
Periodically check the roof shingles on the home to see if any shingles are missing or damaged. If you see any damaged shingles contact Area Public Adjusters to address the issue. Shingles that are missing, cracked, buckled, or loose due to wind damage can result in full replacement of the roof. Flashing around plumbing vents, skylights, and chimneys often becomes compromised from wind. Be sure to check these areas.
Gutters need to be clear of fallen tree debris and leaves. Clean your gutters often and be sure the downspouts have proper drainage from the the foundation. During the winter months melting snow ice dams can be very damaging to the home as melting snow from the roof freezes along the eaves. Prevent ice dams by sealing air leaks and add insulation to the attic. Make sure attic ventilation systems are installed and working properly.
At least once in your life you will need to file a home or business insurance claim. The entire claim process becomes easy when properly prepared. We advise our clients or potential clients to compile a list of all prized possessions for insurance purposes. This list should be updated annually. Document the list with photos, videos, and receipts. Make extra copies and store them in a safe place away from your home in a safe deposit box or with a relative.
You can never fully prepare for an insurance claim. The professionals at Area Public Adjusters will provide complete guidance throughout the entire insurance claim process. The tips mentioned above will prevent some claims but sometimes damage to your property is inevitable. Contact us for any wind, water, fire, smoke, or storm damage claims.
