-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
NOW THAT THE IMMEDIATE DANGER FROM "HURRICANE MATTHEW" HAS PASSED, MANY HOME- AND BUSINESS-OWNERS ARE TAKING STOCK OF THE DAMAGE.  PETER DUNCANSON, OF "SERVICE-MASTER RESTORE", OFFERS THESE TIPS--TO GUIDE THEM THROUGH THE RESTORATION-PROCESS...

(DUNCANSON):
"
IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE-PROVIDER, IMMEDIATELY; EVEN THOUGH HURRICANE-DAMAGE IS OFTEN NOT COVERED, YOU STILL NEED TO CHECK WITH YOUR PROVIDER, ABOUT YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION.  ALSO, BE AWARE OF CONTRACTORS WHO PROMISE TO REBUILD--ESPECIALLY IF THEY ASK FOR A DEPOSIT, AND SAY [THAT] THEY CAN COLLECT THE REMAINING BALANCE FROM YOUR INSURANCE-COMPANY.  DO YOUR DUE-DILIGENCE--AND ONLY RELY ON TRUSTED, PROFESSIONAL COMPANIES.  FINALLY, DON'T UNDERESTIMATE THE EXTENT OF ANY DAMAGE THAT YOUR HOME OR PROPERTY MAY HAVE SUFFERED:  WHILE SOME DAMAGE MAY SEEM SIMPLE ENOUGH FOR A DO-IT-YOURSELF SOLUTION, IT'S MUCH SAFER AND LESS EXPENSIVE, IN THE LONG RUN, TO WORK WITH A TEAM OF PROFESSIONALS--WHO HAVE THE TRAINING, EXPERIENCE, EQUIPMENT, AND SIZE TO HANDLE MOST ANY JOB, LARGE OR SMALL."

(CLOSE):
DUNCANSON ADDS THAT LIVE OPERATORS ARE AVAILABLE, 24-SEVEN, AT 1-800-"RESPOND"--AND THAT MORE INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE AT "SERVICE-MASTER-RESTORE"-DOT-COM.

-- ADDITIONAL STATEMENTS --

(DUNCANSON):
"
YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO LOCAL OFFICIALS, REGARDING SAFETY.  AND, WHETHER YOU'RE RE-ENTERING AN EVACUATED AREA--OR DEALING WITH ANY DAMAGE AROUND THE AREA--BE CAUTIOUS--ESPECIALLY BEFORE WALKING AROUND.  CHECK FOR STANDING WATER AND DAMAGED TREES--AND KEEP CHILDREN AND ELDERLY OUT OF THE IMPACTED AREAS--SINCE THERE MAY BE HEALTH-CONCERNS FROM CONTAMINANTS."

(DUNCANSON):
"
WET BUILDING-MATERIALS, IN PARTICULAR, CAN BECOME A BREEDING-GROUND FOR MOLD AND BACTERIA; ALWAYS WEAR GLOVES AND PROTECTIVE CLOTHING, WHEN HANDLING THEM--AND MAKE SURE TO KEEP CHILDREN AWAY.  AND, WHILE TREES AND DEBRIS NEED TO BE CLEARED, YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL; YOU MAY FIND PESTS, SUCH AS SNAKES AND SPIDERS."
