Property Damage Prevention 101: What to Do in Any Disaster

A yellow sign reading “crisis ahead” warns property owners to be prepared for any disaster, expected or unexpected.

Property Damage Prevention 101: What to Do in Any Disaster

In the blink of an eye, disaster has struck, and your once-secure home or business now bears the scars of unexpected chaos. After a flood, fire, mold, or storm, the aftermath can be too much to handle. And during a crisis like this, it’s normal to feel vulnerable and unsure, not knowing where to go or what to do next. 

That’s where we come in. In this guide, the team at PENCO Restoration explores the steps you should take during emergency situations and how we can help you get your property back to normal quickly and safely.

The Property Owner’s Guide to Emergency Situations

Having a thorough emergency preparedness plan will set you up for success. Here are some of the essential steps to take when faced with the daunting reality of property damage:

1. Contact Emergency Services

Immediately reach out to the necessary emergency response professionals, such as the police or fire department, to ensure the protection of everyone involved.

2. Ensure Personal Safety

Prioritize the safety of yourself and others. Follow any evacuation orders or safety protocols provided by emergency responders. 

3. Secure Valuables

Take steps to secure valuable items, documents, and personal belongings. Professional restoration services can assist in this process, helping salvage as much as possible.

4. Coordinate Temporary Accommodations

Business owners should have a backup plan for ways that work can continue, if possible, in case of an emergency, but this tip is especially crucial for homeowners. If the damage is severe and your home is unsafe, arrange temporary housing for yourself and your family. This step ensures everyone’s well-being during the restoration process.

5. Contact a Professional Restoration Company

Once you are in a safe location, it’s time to reach out to a professional restoration company to help prevent further damage. From board-up services and site assessments to calling your insurance company, their expertise will be essential in minimizing property damage and streamlining a swift recovery.
