Don't Lose Your Memories Because of Property Damage

In our previous post, we focused on which items you should include in an emergency box. One of those items was your photos. While these are important items to include, Thistle DKI has prepared this post to help you prevent against losing these precious memories if you are not able to grab your emergency box or are not at home when disaster strikes.

Locate and Arrange

While everybody today takes photos with a digital camera or a cell phone, many of us remember a time when you had to click a button and scroll the film before taking another photo. If this sounds like you, it's time to pull out those old photo boxes and begin to sort them out. Start with deciding which photos you want to keep. Once you have these sorted, it's time to scan.

Scan

If your home computer came with a scanner, now is the perfect time to make use of it. If not, speak with a friend or relative who has one which you can borrow. Install any necessary software and start scanning. When you save these, be sure to keep them in separate folders to help you stay organized. If you have a large number of photos and a small amount of time, take your collection to a camera house or a department store and have them scanned for you on to one, or a few, small flash drives.

Storage

Now that you have your photos scanned and stored digitally, it's time to think about times where you won't be home to take your flash drives with you in the event of a disaster. To prepare for this, research into cloud storage services and find one which offers the most appropriate options for you. While some may focus on editing and sorting, you may find that your needs can be as basic as a simple 'drag and drop' storage facility. Whichever you choose, be sure to check the conditions of use and ensure that it meets your requirements. With your preferred service chosen, simply install any software they require, or just 'drag and drop' your folders into the web page of your storage service.

Property Restoration in Las Vegas

With this now complete, your photos are protected in the event that your home sustains damage while you are not there. As you take new photos, be sure to continue to upload these. Many online storage services offer an app for your phone which can take care of this task automatically. If you are in a situation where your property has sustained damage, and you are in need of property restoration in Las Vegas, don't be tempted to complete the job yourself. Non-visible structural damage can make for an unsafe site, putting you at risk of danger. Speak with an expert at Thistle DKI by calling 1 702 871 8462 (24 hours a day) and have a professional attend your site to inspect and begin immediate and safe property restoration in Las Vegas.
