You’re probably flying blind when it comes to knowing what is ahead of you and understanding how our Columbus Ohio water damage restoration contractors get your property fully restored. If it’s a water loss, the video below walks you through the common process employed by our technicians. While the water extraction equipment could vary depending on the surface areas affected and the drying systems could be different, this video shows you images of our technicians and explains what they’re doing during each of the 5 steps of the water damage restoration process:
There’s a couple of things you need to know right off the bat when it comes to dealing with your insurance company after you’ve experienced water damage:
1) You don’t need a claim in order to begin the water mitigation process
2) Your adjuster can’t tell you what restoration company to use
3) You want an expert in your corner when dealing with your adjuster
The first point is important because it ends up hurting people. Most call their insurance company and wait around for a claim number before actually dealing with the loss. That is a recipe for disaster, especially given the speed in which black mold begins growing. Your first action is to call a certified water damage restoration company in Columbus to contain the water loss and begin the dry-out process ASAP!
The second point is important because often times your adjuster will tell you what company to call. That isn’t ethical but it happens all the time. What you should know about that arrangement is whatever restoration contractor they refer you to has already agreed to provide their services at a significant discount. In other words, they’ll be the cheapest in town. Since your insurer is usually paying the bill, that’s great for them…but let us ask you this: when is the last time you went with the cheapest contractor on the block and ended being really happy about it?
The third point is important because of the nature of insurance companies, specifically their need to generate profits and returns for their shareholders. What does that mean for your water damage event? Most likely they’ll look for reasons to try and not pay for services that are necessary. You need a water damage company that is an expert in the field and understands how to speak with adjusters and how to present things in a way they’ll understand. You need us on your side to make sure the end result is your home is returned to its pre-loss condition and that the insurance company pays for those services.
When water damage losses are covered under insurance, most people choose to file a claim. After all, you’ve been paying for insurance for all these years for events like this, so it’s silly not to use your policy for events it’s designed to protect you against. But first, you need to understand if your loss is covered. Generally speaking, losses are covered if they are a result of sudden water damage occurring within your property’s structure. Let’s break down that sentence further:
Is it from a gradual issue or a sudden event? While it might seem immaterial to you, it could be the difference between the loss being covered or not. Insurance typically covers sudden events, such as a pipe bursting, or a washing machine hose disconnecting, or any other type of loss that occurs quickly and sends water streaming into your home. But if the loss is due to a gradual leak, or another type of loss that occurred slowly over time, your insurer may deny your claim on the basis that the damage could have been prevented by regular maintenance.
Where did the water come from? If it came from outside, you’re probably not covered unless you have a separate flood insurance policy. Water events like massive flooding where rain water or rising river water make their way into your home aren’t covered under a traditional homeowners insurance policy!
