Fortunately, there have been remarkable advancements in technology in the past few years that make it easier to assess the status of your residential, commercial, industrial or governmental property. For example, GlobalPro Recovery uses drones and sophisticated recording applications to document the exterior condition of homes, offices, shopping centers, warehouses, hotels, hospitals and other structures. This cost-effective approach allows our clients to get clear visual images from every angle without the time and expense of a manual inspection.
It’s also important to document interior conditions using photographs and videos to show the walls, windows, ceilings and floors. If a tree limb cracks a window in the living room or airborne debris smashes the front door, you will have visual proof that there was no pre-existing damage – a key factor when filing an insurance claim. You should also inventory your valuable personal possessions, including jewelry, artwork, antiques, vintage cars, etc. If you have a recent appraisal or sales receipt, photograph or scan those documents and keep everything in a secure location, such as a cloud-based storage service.
