Rental Insurance

It is a good idea to have a rental insurance policy in the event of an accident. Many property managers require rental insurance. Coverage can vary from policy to policy. Some policies cover property damage, theft, personal belongings and even lodging in the event of a displacing emergency. It’s a good idea to look into obtaining a rental insurance policy, and if you already have one, it’s good to be familiar with what is and what is not covered.

Property management/ owner duties

Any landlord is responsible for keeping the apartment maintained to an acceptable level of livability. Basic plumbing, appliance and electrical maintenance is the responsibility of the landlord, as is basic property upkeep. The landlord can be held negligible for damage incurred due to failing to perform these basic functions.

Damage to personal property

Damage to the building itself, as well as utilities and appliances should be covered by the property owner’s insurance policy. Damage to personal property falls under the responsibility of the party who caused the damages, which may or may not be the tenant.

Smoke alarm Smoke alarm

Did you know that 40% of home fire deaths occur in homes that do not have a smoke alarm? Additionally, for fires where a smoke alarm was present but did not operate, 43% of those smoke alarms simply had missing or disconnected batteries.

Having functional smoke alarms in your home drastically increases your chance of surviving a home fire. If you do not have smoke alarms, it is encouraged that you install them as soon as possible. Please read below for crucial information on how to operate and maintain your home’s smoke detectors.

  • It is encouraged that you install both ionization AND photoelectric smoke alarms, OR dual sensor smoke alarms, which contain both ionization and photoelectric smoke sensors.
  • Test batteries in your smoke alarms on a monthly basis.
  • Replace batteries in battery-powered and hard-wired smoke alarms at least once a year (except non-replaceable 10-year lithium batteries).
  • Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, including the basement, both inside and outside of sleeping areas.
  • Replace the entire smoke alarm unit every 8-10 years or according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Never disable a smoke alarm while cooking - it can be a deadly mistake.

What to do after a fire.

4/6/2021 (Permalink)

Home Fire Home Fire

A home fire can be one of the most devastating events to occur in the life of a homeowner. 

 It is likely you have lost a tremendous amount of personal belongings and have suffered a substantial amount of mental anguish.

These are a few tips to follow:

Review your policy

You may have replacement coverage for your home, but it may only be for “actual cash value” for your lost personal items. Upon contacting your insurance company, the agent should be able to tell you about this and may suggest purchasing an endorsement to ensure that your personal belongings will, in fact be covered under a replacement policy.

Immediately File Your Claim.

All homeowner policies require that you report the damage as soon as possible. Your first step is to submit a “proof of loss” claim to your agent. This document will consist of an itemized list your losses how old the items were and the value of each item. The longer you put off this step, the longer it will take your insurance company to send an adjuster to address your claim.

Record Your Living Expenses

All homeowner’s policies contain a “loss of use” clause which entitles the insured to be reimbursed for additional living expenses incurred while their home is uninhabitable. Be mindful that these expenses only include additional living expenses, meaning the difference between your normal expenses and what it is costing your while you are kept from your home. Find out what your daily budget is.

Fire damage remediation is a long process, and navigating your insurance can prove to be difficult without the correct knowledge. Regardless of if you have experienced a small kitchen fire or a complete burn down, you will need an experienced restoration company to help assess the damage. SERVPRO of South Rancho Cucamonga is ready when fire strikes, 24/7

Tips for a landslide event

4/6/2021 (Permalink)

As Southern California heads into the rainy season, it’s important for California residents to know how to respond if a landslide occurs in their area. The first priority in any weather event is to ensure everyone’s safety. If you end up experiencing property damage after a landslide event due to a wind or rain storm, you can trust SERVPRO of South Rancho Cucamonga to handle the restoration of your property with care and attention to detail.

 After a landslide occurs, please remember these important details tips:

  • Stay away from the slide area. There may be danger of additional slides.
  • Watch for flooding. Floods sometimes follow landslides and debris flows because they may both be started by the same conditions.
  • Report broken utility lines and damaged roadways and railways to appropriate authorities. Reporting potential hazards will get the utilities turned off as quickly as possible, preventing further hazard and injury. 
  • All trained professionals to check the building foundation, chimney, and surrounding land for damage.
  • If damage from the landslide affected your property, take photos of all the affected areas. This will be helpful in any insurance claims you may open during the restoration process.

Power outages during storms

Flash light ready Flash light ready

The American Red Cross encourages that each household and car have a preparedness kit, but sadly only 51.5% of US homes reportedly have an emergency kit ready. Here at SERVPRO of South Rancho Cucamonga, we’re passionate about preparedness. As we head into the 2021 summer season, we recommend homes and businesses prepare power outage kits for the instance they find themselves without power.

Kits should include things like water, canned food, a can opener, flashlights and batteries. Food and water rations should be enough for each person in your household or place of business for 5 days.

To start a power outage kit, grab an old backpack or duffle and add in plenty of bottled water, battery-operated radio and clock, flashlight for each member of your household including extra batteries, non-electric can opener, and list of emergency phone numbers including family and friends and a first aid kit.
