How to Handle Home Emergencies Fast

Emergencies don’t call and say when they are coming; they show up unannounced and unexpected. In the midst of an emergency, whether it’s a flood, a fire, leaking roof or a wildlife invasion, it is advisable to act fast. Taking action immediately will keep you safe, mitigate the damage and reduce the amount of money and time spent in handling the emergency. The steps you take when there is an emergency will depend on the nature of the event. But basically, these four tips can be helpful when it comes to identifying the steps to take when you have an emergency. Ensure You are Safe Before you think about anything else, think about your safety and the safety of anyone in your house. Take the necessary precaution to ensure no one gets hurt. Some of the safety measures you can take include turning off the power, leaving the house fast, ringing the alarm to call for help when you are stuck or in danger, or calling the police. Mitigate the Damage If the house is safe, consider taking some steps to mitigate the damage. For instance, if you are dealing with a burst pipe, you can shut the water off from the mains. If you aren’t sure it’s safe, leave everything as it is and call for help. Call for Expert Help Unless the damage is not extensive and you can safely and effectively fix the issue, it is advisable to call an expert to fix the issue for you. Before you call an expert, consider whether your home insurance company or home emergency cover provider has any guidelines on how emergencies should be handled. Some companies will only pay for the repairs if the emergency is handled by an expert they recommend. Thus, if you use someone out of their recommendation, you may end up paying for the repairs yourself. This is mostly the case with emergency cover plans. If you have to find an expert yourself, do it fast but carefully. The fastest way to get someone is to ask for a recommendation from people you know. Where you can’t get a recommendation, look up service providers up on the internet. Once you locate a contact, check their areas of specialization, registration and other legal requirements, and the reputation. If you hire an unqualified person to fix the mess, you could end up with greater damage. Thus, do your homework well. Organize the Payments As you call someone to fix the issue, know who will cater for the expenses. Don’t assume your insurance cover will pay for everything since this may not be the case. Call your insurer and enquire whether they will pay and up to what limit. If the cover you have will not cater for everything, you may have to think about using your savings, or even emergency loans from a site like LoanPig to cover home repairs. In future, review your insurance and emergency covers to ensure you will be well catered for in the case of an emergency. Also, work on your home’s wellbeing by doing regular repair or maintenance. Having regular maintenance is also essential for extending the life of your systems and appliances.
