Expectations from Your Insurance Company after Residential Water Damage
Insurance companies have lots of rules and regulations. One very important requirement is that you attempt to mitigate damage after you experience a loss in your home or business.
Let's say that you leave for work one morning and sometime during the day the water supply line to your ice maker ruptures and floods several rooms in your house. When you return from work the water damage will be so extensive that you will most likely feel overwhelmed. It is important to remain calm and not to panic.
You will address the obvious things like turning off the water at the curb, soaking up water with towels and calling your insurance company to file your claim. Once these steps are complete it is recommended that you hire a water restoration company like SERVPRO of Lake Charles to begin the mitigation process.
What many people do not realize is that SERVPRO does more than just dry your home out. They gather a detailed drying report that your insurance company uses to determine whether you immediately attacked the problem or let it exacerbate.
