How up to date is your Home Inventory?

A current Home Inventory can save you thousands in lost contents! 

Our technicians specialize in the restoration of contents damaged by fire, water, or mold. Their expertise can help you save money on your loss.  Having a complete inventory of the contents of your home BEFORE a water or fire damage can make certain that all items lost in the fire or flood are included in your insurance claim.

How to create a home inventory

  • Group your possessions into logical categories, i.e., by hobby, by room in your home, etc. 

  • Your list should include celebration purchases like jewelry and art, as well as everyday leisure items such as televisions and guitars.

  • Don't forget items you use rarely such as holiday decorations, sports equipment, tools, etc.

  • Pull together copies of original sales receipts and/or appraisal documents. Also note model and serial numbers.

  • Carefully photograph or videotape each item and document a brief description, including age, purchase price and estimated current value. 

  • Store your home inventory and related documents in a safe, easily accessible place online, on your computer or in a fire-proof box or safe deposit box. Consider sharing a copy your insurance provider as well. 

  • Once you have completed your home inventory and stored it safely, set a reminder to update the inventory and photos annually.
