STEP ONE:
After experiencing a flood, contact your agent or insurance company to file a claim. An adjuster should contact you within a few days of filing your claim. If you do not hear from an adjuster, you can contact your insurance agent or company again. Make sure you have the following information handy:

The name of your insurance company
Your policy number
A telephone and/or email address where you can be reached at all times
STEP TWO:
Separate damaged from undamaged property. Your adjuster will need evidence of the damage to your home and possessions to prepare your repair estimate.

Take photographs of all of the damaged property, including discarded objects, structural damage, and standing floodwater levels.
Make a list of damaged or lost items and include their date of purchase, value, and receipts, if possible.
Officials may require disposal of damaged items so, if possible, place flooded items outside of the home.

I'm with Jacob William, those seven steps are a quick and easy list to get your home fixed up. Also, if your basement is flooded, then you might want to look into the underlying causes, such as clogged gutters, concrete sinkage, etc.

STEP THREE:
Your adjuster will provide you a Proof of Loss form for your official claim for damages. You'll need to file this claim with your insurance company within 60 days of the flood. This document substantiates the insurance claim and is required before the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) or insurance company can make payment.

You'll receive your claim payment after you and the insurer agree on the amount of damages and the insurer has your complete, accurate, and signed Proof of Loss form. If major catastrophic flooding occurs, it may take longer to process claims and make payments because of the sheer number of claims submitted.

Fire and flood damage are two of the biggest nightmares a homeowner can experience. While the right insurance is the best way to begin recovering, there is a lot of work that goes in to restoring your home. An expert will be able to thoroughly examine your home to determine how extensive the damage is and what is necessary to ensure the safety of you and your family during the restoration. You should get an estimate of how long it will take as well as an estimate of additional changes that you might want to make now. We provide Water & Flood damage restoration services with a faster turnaround time. Thanks for nice article.

Remember, a flood insurance policy is usually separate from your homeowner’s policy, which in most cases does not pay for flood claims.

Next, separate damaged from undamaged property. Your adjuster will need evidence of the damage to your home and possessions to prepare your repair estimate.

Take photographs of all damaged property, including discarded objects, structural damage and standing floodwater levels.
Make a list of damaged or lost items and include their date of purchase, value and receipts, if possible.
Officials may require disposal of damaged items, so if possible, place flooded items outside of the home.
Finally, your adjuster will provide you with a Proof of Loss form for your official claim for damages. Remember, you must file this claim with your insurance company within 60 days of the flood – or by the end of June.

This document substantiates the insurance claim and is required before the National Flood Insurance Program or insurance company can make payment.

You will receive your claim payment after you and the insurer agree on the amount of damages and the insurer has your complete, accurate and signed Proof of Loss form.

SEATTLE – As Washingtonians deal with the aftermath of severe storms and flooding that occurred a week ago, the recovery process may include a flood insurance claim. There are three steps to file a claim with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP):

Contact your insurance agent.
Document your damaged property.
File a Proof of Loss form within 60 days of the flood.


Keep in mind as you go through this process:

You do not need to wait for a Presidential Disaster Declaration to file a flood claim.
Your policy cannot be canceled for making a claim.
A flood insurance policy is typically separate from a homeowner’s insurance policy.

If you cannot stay in your home due to the extent of the damage, be sure to include a way for you to be reached away from the house, such as a cell phone, shelter, or hotel phone number.

Make an appointment for an insurance adjuster to come look at the flood damage. It should be done as soon as possible so that you can begin replacing and repairing the damaged items.

Move any undamaged personal items away from the water to ensure that they do not get wet. This can also help keep the area organized so that the flood insurance adjuster can quickly see what has been destroyed.

ake pictures of the flooded areas of the home, as well as any items that got wet. Include pictures of items that you plan on throwing away so that you can be compensated for them. If your carpet is damaged and you need to throw it out, cut a swatch from it so that you have an example of the damage that a photo might not reflect.

Make a list of items that were damaged due to the water. Include the name of each product, price, and date and location of the purchase. If you are not sure of the exact information, either try to find receipts or estimate facts like pricing.

Show the flood insurance adjuster any damage estimates that you may have gotten from a contractor, since these will help in getting the correct compensation to repair the damage.


Obtain a Proof of Loss form from the adjuster, which will serve as your certified flood insurance claim for damages. This form is required for the National Flood Insurance Program to pay your claim, and you must file it with your insurance company no more than 60 days after the flood.

Tell your adjuster if you need at least some of the payment in advance so that you can replace necessities that were lost in the flood. If you have accurate records of what you lost, you are likely to get some money ahead of time. You can also repair or replace items first, and then show the receipts to the adjuster. Permanent or expensive repairs should wait until the flood insurance claim is finished to ensure their costs will be compensated.

Sign and give your Proof of Loss form to your flood insurance company once you come to an agreement on the payment to be made.

Keep in touch with your flood insurance agent until the process is complete so that questions can be answered quickly.

1.Check your policy. Not all insurance policies include flood damage, and it is often a secondary policy that you'll have to have before the flood occurs.
2.Notify your insurer. Keep your policy information on hand and call your insurance agent or company right away.
3.Get an anticipated time frame.
