Most apartments and vacation rentals will supply you with a move in/move out checklist. This is often the same checklist managers use when inspecting a unit post move out. Walk through your new home before moving furniture in and look for any damage to the interior and exterior. Take pictures with your smart phone and save them in a specific album on your phone so they’re easy to find. It’s a good idea to make note of any preexisting damages and report them to the landlord.
The home insurance industry is rapidly changing. New efforts toward damage prevention are becoming more and more important to both adjusters and policyholders. Strengthening homes minimizes the potential for damage and is the only way to decrease loss of property and life. In 2015 the federal government introduced the idea of the “Disaster Savings Account.”
Temporary Accommodations sees many causes of property damage, but fire accounts for a third of the claims we handle. Preventing a fire is much easier than fighting a fire, but you should be sure there are working fire extinguishers on every level of your home. A fire can take seconds to spread.
Yesterday was one of the hottest days of the summer, but TA can handle the heat! Thirty-two members of our staff participated in our hands-on fire safety training. Each of us learned a lot, and we're all better prepared to stop a fire before it spreads.
