- Switch Off Utilities – Before repairmen arrive, you should have your electrical, gas, and water manually shut off, so no accidents occur during the damage repair process.
- Prep the Area – Like previously stated, to prepare for your weather damage repair it’s a good idea to tidy up and take inventory. Additionally, you can prep the area by covering furniture and clearing the area to the best of your ability.
