Media Advisory: Enservio Offers Contents Claims Advice to Victims of Tropical Storm Ida

Tips Help Storm Victims With Contents Inventory and Valuation for Insurance Claims and Filing for Tax Deductions

NATICK, MA--(Marketwire - November 13, 2009) - Enservio (, the nation's leading provider of contents inventory creation and valuation solutions, is offering advice to victims of Tropical Storm Ida who have suffered loss or damage to the contents of their homes.

The following tips can help homeowners who have suffered contents losses take immediate action:

        Understand your homeowners insurance policy conditions

        -- The 'Conditions' section of most homeowners insurance policies
           states that in the case of a loss to covered property, it is the
           insured's responsibility to provide the following information to
           qualify for coverage of lost contents:
                 - Prepare an inventory of damaged personal property
                   showing the description, actual cash value and amount
                   of loss
                 - Include all bills, receipts and other reliable documents
                   that justify the figures in the inventory

        Even if you don't have flood insurance, you still can recoup some
        of your loss

        -- Lack of flood insurance does not mean you're entirely out in the
           cold -- an accurate inventory and valuation of your home's lost
           and damaged contents can be used to file for a deduction on your
           federal income tax.
