What can you do?

There are some steps you can take before we arrive. Just remember that your health and safety are more important than your belongings, no matter how priceless. Follow the guidelines presented to you by your local law enforcement agency and please don't take any unnecessary risks.

  • Contact a qualified insurance restoration contractor.
  • Report the damage to your insurance company as soon as possible. You can also report your loss to your agent.
  • Before attempting any clean-up, first check with the police in order to preserve the crime scene. Save any containers that may help identify the chemical composition of inks, paints or cosmetics used during a vandalism incident.
  • Do not attempt to operate damaged appliances.
  • Wipe up freshly spilled food from carpeting and fabrics with a dampened cloth or sponge (do not over wet). Blot, do not rub, damaged area. Rubbing may cause fuzzing and damage carpet fibers.
  • Hose down egg residue from the building's exterior as soon as possible. Also wash any egg residue from the walls with cold water-no soap as quickly as possible. Do not attempt to remove paint, ink or cosmetic stains.
  • Retrieve and retain all broken pieces of porcelain and art objects.
  • Save all wood chips or broken pieces of furniture.
  • Do not attempt to remove large pieces of glass from window panes or picture frames. Carefully vacuum smaller glass particles from carpets and upholstery.
  • If you must relocate, even temporarily, give your insurance company a phone number where you can be reached.

We are professionally trained to handle other perils such as:

Animal destruction/infestation, bloodborne pathogens, damage caused by aircraft, earthquake, explosions, falling objects, freezing, glass breakage, ground settlement/vibrations, hail, ice dams, insect liability, landslide, lightning, sinkholes, sewage, theft and vehicular damage.

You want your home back to the condition it was in prior to the damage. At Paul Davis Restoration, we know just how to do that.
