What Can I Do Before My Adjuster Arrives After Storm Damages?

When the monsoon is up and running, you can be sure that local adjusters are at their busiest, making their ability to get to you in a timely manner less feasible. By preparing before their arrival with all the storm damage documentation done to your home, and having already contacted the restoration company, you will be making things easier on your adjuster which in turn will support things getting done faster. Storm damage companies in Phoenix are always ready for an emergency, so the chances of them getting to you first are in your favor.
One thing you can do to improve your ability to get your claim accepted is by taking some video of the affect property and items. Collect all receipts of the damaged property if you can. If it has been more than a few days since the initial storm damage and the arrival of the restoration company, video is especially helpful as there has most likely been some mold growth by now which may require mold remediation and removal.
