Flood Restoration & Water Damage Claims Help
The impact of water damage or flooding can cause a severe amount of damage to your property. There are many ways that water damage can be caused, flooding, a burst pipe, leaky boiler or even a faulty washing machine.
Most water damage will not be in sight so it is very important that you make full use of our loss assessors who have a broad knowledge in dealing with flood restoration claims. If you do not require our assistance there may be underlying problems not being detected that will cause problems in the future. This is why it is crucial that all water damage no matter how big or small is detected and documented before the final claim is submitted to your insurer.
If water was to leak in the cavities behind your walls and this is not documented, your insurer would not agree to a second payment after the original sum has been settled. If it is not documented and repair it can cause a wider range of damage, which you won’t know about until it’s too late.
Specialist Secondary Water Damage Detection
Through the use of chemical testing, moisture detection and equipment specifically designed for use with water damage repair, our recommended contractors will identify not only the source of water, but also the extent of any water damage that may have been caused. Also, if there is any potential of hidden secondary damage, it could form in the shape of mold spores, dry rot, structural cracking or fire risk.
With primary water damage, you are usually able to instantly identify the destruction that has been caused. One of the main problems you could face is invisible secondary damage. Moisture can quickly change from liquid to water vapor that can then travel around the property. Once this vapor re-condenses, it can then be absorbed by porous materials.
It is essential that all water damage repairs are completed professionally and thoroughly from the first assessment of secondary damage. Otherwise, this may cause damage that may not be noticed for many years to come.
