Santa Monica, CA, September 11, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- National Preparedness Month is designed to encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses, and communities. Whether it's September or any other month of the year, disaster can strike at any time without warning and August/September 2011 has been particularly hard hitting. The Bastrop Fire in Texas has destroyed nearly 1,400 homes and Hurricane Irene, according to the Consumer Federation of America says wind damage may total about $5 billion and flooding $2 billion in 10 East Coast states. DocuHome® Home Inventory Solutions wants Americans to get their homes prepared and is offering their home inventory software, a $69 value, for free during the month of September.
Without a home inventory, itemizing assets and calculating the value of loss for insurance replacement is nearly impossible. With a home inventory stored in safe place, such as a remote server or “cloud,” it can make all the difference in getting your life and home back on track after a catastrophic loss. No one knows better than disaster preparedness expert and DocuHome CEO Bradford Stanley how to prepare communities for disasters. Stanley launched DocuHome in 2010 after losing his Malibu home in the 2007 wildfires. “It seems like just yesterday that I saw my home go up in smoke in the Coral Canyon wildfires. The lessons that I’ve learned from that terrifying day was just how unprepared we were for the devastating loss, how under insured we were and how frustratingly difficult it is to itemize our assets and calculate the value of our loss for insurance purposes and replacement. We have shaped DocuHome’s mission to help people everywhere prepare for the worst, whenever it may come.”
DocuHome is the most comprehensive, user-friendly, home inventory product on the market today. The patent-pending photo and tagging system is so easy to use, homeowners can photograph, assign a value, and safely store all of their possessions on-line in hours, not days. A user’s inventory can be accessed from any computer, truly making their home inventory indestructible and making the rebuilding process as easy and pain free as possible. DocuHome has been featured on many other business and consumer publications as one the smartest new technologies to come on the market.
Many homeowners will face similar tragic circumstances in 2011. FEMA reported there were an estimated 1.6 million fires with direct property loss due to the fires estimated at $14.6 billion. Stanley transformed his personal tragedy into the innovative DocuHome program which will allow homeowners everywhere to be prepared for any unseen disaster looming on the not-too-distant horizon.
“If a loss should occur, a DocuHome home inventory can make the difference between an inadequate restoration of your home and its furnishing and recovering all that is rightfully yours from your insurance policy,” says Stanley. He continues, “The most recent tragedy of the ravaging wildfires in Bastrop, Texas cannot be understated, as thousands of homeowners saw the frailty of their homes and possessions. Now, more than ever, it is crucial for homeowners in disaster-prone areas to be prepared for any future devastating events.”
To help residents in the disaster regions, Stanley is offering a free annual subscription of DocuHome’s home Inventory software, a savings of $69 per year. “It is important to for these victims to realize that even though a natural disaster may destroy your homes, it doesn’t destroy your lives as well.”
