Is my basement flood covered by insurance?

 

checklist 150x150 Chicago IL Basement Flood Clean upMost likely your policy covers any flooding as a result of a water source within the home.  In other words, if your sewer line backs-up and floods, or a pipe under your sink bursts, or even if your water heater leaks, those types of losses are typically covered.  However, if the water source is outside of the structure, it’s usually not covered under standard homeowner’s insurance.  So if heavy rains bring water in basement, it’s probably the case you’ll have to pay for the cost to remediate that loss.

 

Can you help with my claim?

How do we calculate what to charge?

 

Unlike virtually any other home improvement service, our rates aren’t determined by us. By that we mean that any reputable basement flood cleanup company will use the same system to calculate their rates.  It’s called Xactimate and here’s a quick video that explains how the system works to determine a fair cost for any basement water extraction services you might need:


 

How do you remove water from my basement?

 

water extraction 261x300 Chicago IL Basement Flood Clean upIf you have standing water in your basement, the quicker we’re able to get the water out the less issues we’ll have.  Determining how best to remove water depends on what type of surface we’re dealing with.  In some cases, wet carpet can be saved by using a weighted extraction system that allows us to apply pressure to the carpet for a few seconds during which any moisture is sucked up and discarded.  If you have hardwoods that are water damaged, we can use a negative-pressure water extraction system system designed specifically for wet wood floors to extract any moisture.  Of course, we also have high-powered vacuums that suck up any standing water.

 

How does the drying process work?

Many times people assume that drying out basement flooding is as simple as opening a few windows and putting some fans in the area to circulate some air.  While we wish that were the case, unfortunately it’s not.

One key component of structural drying is knowing what needs to be dried.  “That’s easy, if you see some water damage or a soaked wall, you just dry it!”, you say.  Certainly if you can visually see water damage, you’ve got a problem and it needs to be addressed.  The tricky part is the flooding you can’t see.

water damage restoration 2 300x225 Chicago IL Basement Flood Clean upOnce we know what we’re dealing with, and we’ve had a chance to remove all of the moisture possible using basement water extraction equipment, we use a combination of air movers and dehumidifers placed throughout the affected areas such that they can pass hot, dry air over the moisture areas and quickly dry them out.

Depending on how much basement water occurred and the size of the affected area, drying can take anywhere from a day to several days.  We use moisture meters as a guide to determine when the structure is dry and will remove our equipment when we’re confident that the moisture levels are acceptable.
