It all starts when you have an insurance loss. The first thing you should do is contact your insurance company and get a claim started. This is usually done through your agent, but most companies have a claim page on their website as well.

Depending on the type of loss, you may have some work to do at the house. One of your main responsibilities, written into your policy, is to reduce or eliminate the possibility of further damage, to the best of your ability. For example, if you have water damage, you should call a water damage mitigation company. They will take steps to clean up any standing water and prevent mold growth.
