A common problem people can run into when they hire an emergency water removal company is that the insurance company balks at the cost. That shouldn’t happen but it does and the reasons can vary. In the most malicious instances, the restoration company over-charges for their work, meaning they do a lot of work that isn’t required knowing the total cost will go up. But in some instances, the adjuster might simply be looking for ways to bully you into paying for a portion of the work to keep their costs down. Don’t let this happen to you, call us before you call your adjuster!

As they say, there’s more than one way to skin a cat. At the end of the day, the goal for any water extraction service job we’re sent to is to remove the moisture before mold growth happens. So while the path towards that goal may differ from job to job, the basic methods and phases of the job are pretty standard. To help new customers that have never needed professional water mitigation services understand what lies ahead of them, our marketing team made this video. If you have a minute, it might be a good idea to watch it so you know what type of services we perform and you’re prepared to ask us questions when you call!
When you do this job for long enough, you start to see the same things over and over again in terms of the reasons for the flooding damage. While sometimes you’ll drive up and find something completely unexpected, for the most part the same systems break down repeatedly and result in a flooded home. The good news for you is that you can take some relatively simple (and inexpensive) steps to greatly lessen the odds you suffer from one of these failed systems in the future:
Supply lines are under immense pressure – check them often!
The lines that supply water to any number of plumbing systems in your home are under a lot of pressure 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Over time, that pressure wears on the supply lines and they can pop. When that happens, a massive amount of water can immediately be expelled throughout your home, flooding multiple levels and causes tens of thousands of dollars in damages. Whether it’s the lines to your sinks, your refrigerator’s ice maker, or to your toilets, it’s recommended you check them at least 2 times per year.
Pay special attention to your washing machine hoses!
No supply line is under more intense pressure than your washing machine hoses. One small crack or if the connection comes loose over time, and suddenly your knee deep in water. Do yourself a favor right now and go check to see what type of hoses you have. If they are rubber, go to your home improvement store and buy these:
Old water heaters!!!
When we drop three exclamations points, that means we’re yelling and jumping up and down and screaming. Why? Not only is an old water heater the culprit for many emergency water extraction jobs we’re sent on, but in most cases when you go to file your insurance claim your adjuster will come out, see what caused it and put a fat ‘DENIED’ stamp on your claim. Why? They take the stance that you should have known it was due to fail and that you should have replaced it a long time ago. In other words, your negligence as a homeowner caused the loss, not some accident they ensure against. Don’t let this happen to you because chances are you’ll end up having to pay for our Baltimore water removal services yourself!
