From the Riverdale Park/University Park Patch newspaper, “Document EVERYTHING. Take photographs, record videos, and prepare an inventory of damaged property and its estimated value. Look for original receipts on items that are now damaged, and include that with your inventory.”
The Scan Man goes on a bit in this blog about scanning your vital records before a disaster. Hundreds of businesses lost documents in the most recent storms and floods. Every flooded basement represented a home owner who lost tax records, insurance documents, and photographs.
Buy a scanner yourself (I can help you pick one out), or let Modern Image help you. At least ask for a free estimate. Don’t let this happen to you.
