Your Guide to Addressing Winter Storm Property Damage
Our risk solutions consultants and claims team offer expert guidance for members with Property coverage.
Inspect your property for water damage
If you have an immediate need for water mitigation, reach out directly to these vendors for help with mitigation and emergency repairs.
- Belfor Property Restoration: Call Tammy Kleine at 254-405-4833
- Cavalry Construction and Restoration: Call Joe Cockram at 940-631-0131
Prevent further damage
Broken pipes can lead to extensive flooding and water damage. Because the demand is high, it might be difficult to get a professional mitigation company to your location quickly.
Follow these steps to limit the damage and potential costs:
- Turn off water.
- Clear water from the area.
- Dry out water-soaked items.
File a claim
If you sustained property damage due to the freeze, call us at 800-482-7276 for immediate assistance, or report a claim online and we will call you to follow up.
Hire contractors carefully
Use caution with third-party vendors, such as roofers, plumbers, or public adjusters. Speak to a TASB representative before you engage with a vendor. We have established relationships with trusted companies and can help get you the mitigation, remediation, or restoration answers you need.
Clean up safely
Employees tasked with cleanup operations could be exposed to hazards that cause injuries. Examples include slips while mopping wet floors, back strains when lifting debris, animal or insect bites from disturbed nests, and poor indoor air quality if wet material is not quickly removed.
These credible organizations offer guidance on safely recovering from a disaster:
Apply for public assistance
Texas public schools and colleges could be eligible for winter storm disaster relief under the Public Assistance Program. The federally backed program supports recovery efforts such as debris removal, infrastructure repairs, and reimbursement for emergency and protective measures.
