The devastation that Hurricane Florence brought has wreaked havoc on our community. Damage to homes and HVAC systems have put our customers in unimaginable situations. If you’re a homeowner in Pawleys Island, Conway, Georgetown, SC and the surrounding areas, follow these tips on what to do if your home is flooded due to Hurricane Florence:
Turn the Power Off
If your air conditioning unit or yard is flooded, it’s important to go to your home’s breaker panel and turn your unit off right away. If electricity is still flowing to your unit, more damage to the electrical components can occur. Don’t turn your AC on until you can get an HVAC technician to perform an inspection.
Contact Your Insurance Company
If your entire home is flooded, file a claim with your insurance company as soon as possible. You should have photos and a list of your damaged possessions so your claim will process faster. Once your claim has processed, an insurance adjuster will visit your home to inspect the damage and determine how much your insurance company is going to pay on your behalf.
