What to do if you have personal tangibles, antiques or paintings damaged in a hurricane, flood or fire?
Actions to Take:
• Immediately record in writing and by photograph the date, time and type of incident that caused the damage.
• Contact your insurance company with all the incident details.
Your insurance provider may tell you that they will send out an appraiser to evaluate the damage, or they may also ask you to contact an accredited and certified appraiser.
Check with friends and family for referrals or you can check the two national appraisal societies websites for appraisers near you.
