When it comes to large investments, homes and condominiums are on the top of most families’ lists. Not only are homes important for practical reasons, they become an integral part of your family.

What to Do Following a Disaster
Immediately following a fire, flood or other natural disaster, it is important to make sure your family is in a secure location. Look over your family members to ensure they have not sustained injuries, which may not be apparent due to trauma, shock or adrenaline. Next, call the fire department to report damage to the home. Gas, water and power utilities should also be notified in order to cut off service to the residence.
Following the disaster, you will most likely be approached by restoration and cleanup companies offering their services. While they may have the best of intentions, it is better to wait a short time until you can look over your options. Marleau Bros Limited will help you locate temporary housing, as well as specialists in the inventory and restoration fields.
