Disaster situations can be overwhelming for anyone, especially if there is an element of danger to them. While the emergency is happening, safety becomes your top priority and you focus on keeping your family close and protected until the situation is under control.

However, once the initial emergency is over, it certainly doesn’t mean that there is nothing left to do. Recovering after a disaster takes work and that in itself can seem insurmountable.

SERVPRO of Rapid City is thankfully here to take over your entire recovery! We can handle your reconstruction and repairs as well as the more confusing aspects of disaster recovery, like navigating insurance claims.

Starting the Recovery

Fires, floods and severe storm situations can cause a lot of damage in a really short amount of time, and they can cause chaos really easily if you aren’t prepared or don’t have a plan in place ahead of time. Focus first on keeping everyone calm and safe before turning your attention to your recovery.

Even if the situation itself is really overwhelming, it is unfortunately crucial to start on your recovery efforts immediately. The longer you wait, the worse the situation can become, and the lingering damage can cause further problems. Once you have determined that your family is safe, give us a call so we can get started on your restoration.

Take photos of the damage while you wait for us to arrive. The more you can document, the better!

Your insurance company will want fresh images of the situation, so taking photos right away will give them the best possible information. You should also take a look around and see if there is anything small that you can do to help, like turning off a water valve or opening windows for ventilation.

Leaving the Rest to Us

The good news is that once we arrive, we take over every aspect of your recovery! Our team will secure your home to prevent further damage by boarding up windows, securing roofs and pulling possessions out of the damaged area. We are highly trained in the restoration techniques needed, and we will also work on starting the necessary steps for submitting your insurance claim.

We will put together an itemized list of your losses while also making sure to meet insurance inspection standards to lower your potential costs. Once this list is compiled, we will combine that with the images you took and the professional shots that we took and then we will use all of that to report your damage to your insurance agent. Our team will work hard to restore rather than replace as much of your property as possible.

When you leave your recovery to us, good things will happen. Call us day or night and our crew will help you navigate your restoration and your insurance claim with ease.

When a disaster strikes, call SERVPRO® to make your recovery process—insurance claims and all—simple.
