Water Damage Restoration Questions And Answers
Water damage restoration is not a task to be taken on
lightly. It is very involved and needs
to be done right the first time. Failure
to do so can only cause more problems later on.
If you are the victim of water damage, especially if it is
significant, you may have questions.
Hopefully, we have anticipated correctly and provided the answers.
Question: Can my home
It depends on the level of damage sustained, but more
importantly, how quickly you begin water damage restoration procedures. In many cases, even severely damaged homes
can be saved.
Question: Can I do the work myself?
It depends on how knowledgeable you are about water damage,
if you know how to treat it, what steps to take in what order, if you are
properly equipped for the job, and where to look for problems that may not be
readily apparent. My guess is that most
homeowners do not fit this description.
Question: Is water
damage covered under my homeowners insurance?
Floods are not covered, and a lot of water related spills are not
covered because they are viewed as maintenance issues. You didn’t do proper maintenance on your
home, therefore you are not covered. You
should check with your insurance agent today to find out what is and is not
allowed for, and add additional coverage if necessary.
Question: Okay, if I can’t fix my home, who can?
There are a number of water damage restoration companies in
virtually every city…the problem is finding one that is reputable. Reputable companies will most likely be
certified by the IICRC, the unofficial governing body of the water damage
restoration industry, which provides standards, procedures, and certification
for those who perform this sort of work.
This is the company you should call to work on your home
