Before a disaster such as a hurricane strikes, make a home inventory. Photograph or videotape each room and the exterior of your home. List serial numbers on the items you can. Keep your inventory, your insurance policy, and any other important documents in a safe deposit box or other secure spot. If your home or property is damaged, accurate records can help speed up the claims. TDI publishes a Home Inventory Checklist to help you get started.
