Depending on the damage, a home insurance claim can be an emotional process. Understanding your insurance policy will help you know what to do next and (hopefully) squash some stress. Once you have a handle on what’s covered and what’s not, take an inventory of your possessions. Going room-to-room and taking pictures or videos of what’s inside will help your insurance adjuster know what needs replacing. To go above and beyond, you may even want a spreadsheet filled with information about your possessions: a description, when you purchased, where you purchased and the original value. If you can back up their value with receipts, it’s even better. Keep this information filed away in a fireproof, waterproof safe. Or, keep electronic copies somewhere you could always access them.
