Does insurance cover that after storm damage?
Storm season is approaching...
As the summer season comes to an end it's always a good idea to review your insurance. Insurance is great --it keeps you calm during your storm. But, your insurance may not cover as much as you think.
Do you know your agent's name and contact information?
Your agents want to help you, try to keep in contact with them on what to do when disaster strikes. It's never a bad idea to review your contract and discuss the ins and out of what is covered. Another good idea is to check your deductible. How much will you need to pay out of pocket before it reaches the level that your insurance can help you? Also, are there separate coverage and deductibles for hurricanes, floods, etc.
It's always good to stay prepared, and we hope that disaster doesn't strike but SERVPRO® of Warrick, Spencer, and Dubois Counties is here to help 24/7 -365!

When wind and storms come your way, you need to make sure your roof and home are secure. There are ways to secure your roof and home before the storm comes. Roof damage can create secondary inside water damages in your home. As well, as other glass and fragile areas in your home.
Call a roofing professional to ensure your roof shingles are in place. You can even have them apply adhesive to keep them in place during high wind seasons.
Here are a few other thoughts to consider before storm damage season comes:
- Secure Doors, Windows, and Garage
- Doors and Windows Are Wind-Ready
- Roof damage isn’t the only consideration when preparing your home for strong winds.
Other Wind Fragile Areas
- Permanent impact-resistant shutters will protect your windows against heavy winds, rain, and hail.

How to stay safe during flood season.
How to stay safe during a flood?
Floodwaters are scary enough when they happen outside of your home, but when they come into your safe haven it is even more dangerous than you imagine. Floodwaters are some of the most infested waters. The rainwater from floods runs across the pavement, landscaping, industrial plants, and more. All of these chemicals, oils, debris, dead animals and insects can all be carried into your home. This means this water is highly contaminated.
This is why you should not try to clean these damages on your own. When floodwaters come into your home, you want a professional to take care of the water damage.
We have several pieces of equipment, like a submersible pump for deep water, truck-mounted extractors, and portable extractors to help clean up your water damage.
Between our professional equipment and trained technicians with specialized Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), you can leave to ensure your home is in good hands.
There are special cleaning procedures needed after a flood, and having the right training can help save you money, and time, and keep you safe.
Call our offices today for more information on how we can help safely remove water and debris in your flood-damaged home. Flooding can be overwhelming, so let us help!

Residents of Newburgh, Jasper, Santa Clause, Morganfield, and surrounding local areas: storm season is here. In April, things take a turn and the rain clouds turn to storm clouds. There are a few ways to keep safe. One of those is by having accurate and fail-proof warnings from weather stations and alerts. Check out the three below that can work best for your family and home:
- Reviewable alerts (you can scroll through alerts and turn off the siren for alerts you do not wish to hear).

Winter Storm Damages
Winter Storm Damages to Your Home or Business
Snow removal can be key when it comes to making sure you home or roof of your home does not cause more damages.
Did you know one square foot of compacted snow can weigh close to 50 pounds? Think about how much weight is sitting on your roof. Many roofs, especially, older, flat, or structures such as carports, garages, and sheds are not always rated to support this kind of weight.
When a roof collapses it can create major damages. Not only can it make your roof cave in, but it can create damages to whatever contents is inside of the buildling. Try tor remove snow safely and timely to protect your buildings.
Please, before a storm occurs, winter or other, check with your insurance policy to see what is covered. Typical storm damages, especially winter ones, do not always get covered in a standard policy.
In recent days, we have been pelted with ice and snow. Ice and snow can create water damages in your home or business. The problems with ice and snow in your home can become problematic even after the storm has passed.
When snow sits on top of your roof, it can create an ice dam as it begins to melt creating water that builds and leaks into your home. When there are weak spots in a roof, this situation is even more likely to occur.
When snow damage occurs, it can cause flooding in basements, garages, and other areas of your home. Trust the professionals to help you with your water damages after the ice and snow have passed. Get our number ready to call so we can be to help you 24/7 and 365 days.
When storm damage occurs there is never a right time. The best way to prepare for water damages from a storm is to have a team ready to help.
Our offices are on standby when storm damages are in the area.
In a recent home, flood waters entered the home through the basement. The basement door to the bottom floor of the home spread water from the garage to the basement. Because of the category of water, the flooring, drywall, and other aspects of the basement had to be taken a part and replaced by our reconstruction team.
Our team helped out out customer, and she was pleased she did not have to deal with aftermath of more vendors and other contractors.
