If you have contacted FEMA or feel you should be prepared in case you have to contact them in the future, there are some important reminders that we can go over to help you with an inspection in your home.
After applying for aid from FEMA, hopefully, the applicant will get contacted by a home inspector to assess the damage to the home. This damage could be from wind, floods or even fire as we have seen recently in California. Prior to the inspector arriving at your home, it would good to be aware of how you can facilitate the inspector's job.
If you have flood damage in your home make sure that the inspector comes after the waters have receded and there is no water left in the house, that way they won't be impeded in their inspection. Also, think of how you can clear any debris or other items in or around the house so nothing is obstructing their view of the damage caused.
Thinking of some things beforehand may help us to get the correct amount of aid that we need in these difficult times.
