While we can’t answer all of your questions without assessing the water damage in Orlando, we can begin the process of educating you about the situation and your best options. Here are some questions we get right off the bat from most customers.
How much does water damage restoration cost?
The average cost of a water loss is $2,700. It’s not cheap, but fortunately for you your loss is probably covered under your insurance policy. As it pertains to cost, what most people don’t realize is there is never much if any variance between water damage companies. Why? Because we all use the same system to keep track of our work, and that system determines the rate for each service we offer.
It’s called Xactimate and it makes sure the customer gets a fair price and that the insurance company responsible for paying the costs of the water mitigation services trusts the scope of work. Here’s how it works:
How long does it take to cleanup water damage?
The average water mitigation job lasts around 3-5 days. It’s important to bear in mind that when we say water mitigation, what we mean is the process of extracting the water and then drying out the structure. If walls need to be removed or carpets pulled out or others area of the home must be removed for whatever reason, the build back process can takes weeks longer.
Will I get mold?
If we can begin the water mitigation process within 24 hours of the loss, you won’t get mold. If you wait 48 hours or more, you probably will get mold damage. And once mold takes hold, it grows rapidly and can take over portions of your home. We can not stress this more emphatically: do NOT wait until you have mold damage to hire a professional Orlando water restoration company! The presence of mold exponentially increases the costs of the work necessary and complicates the insurance claim process to the point where you may end up paying for the loss out of pocket instead of your insurance company paying.
Will my home be ripped up and look like a tornado hit it?
When people envision the water damage cleanup process, most of the time they assume that walls will be removed, floors torn up, etc. You’re probably like most people in assuming that our first action is to start tearing up your home. That’s really not the case. From a business stand point, it makes more sense for us to dry out what is there instead of replacing areas of your home. While you might think a water damage contractor would try and do more work in an effort to make more money, the reality is that the margins for a restoration company for the build-back portion is much lower than the mitigation portion.
So like you, we hope that we won’t need to tear out parts of your home and have special equipment that can dry out your structure with very little invasive measures taken!
Will my insurer balk at the costs?
An insurance adjusters job is to determine whether your loss is covered and then work with the restoration company you’ve hired to settle the costs. Obviously they want to pay out as little money as possible on your claim, but ultimately the costs are dictated not by what they want but rather what we determine as necessary. We are the experts in water damage restoration services, not them. So it’s our job to make sure they understand why everything we say we need to do is necessary and then it’s our job to make sure they pay us for those services rendered.
Sometimes people end up in an adversarial situation with their insurance company in which there is a huge disparity between what a water damage company says it’s going to take to fully repair the home and what the insurance company says they will pay for those repairs. In our mind, some fault lies with the restoration contractor because it’s clear they haven’t made a clear, convincing argument for why everything must be done. Remember, the costs are already baked into the Xactimate system, so if there is a problem with the costs, the real issue is whether or not the insurance adjuster feels certain work was necessary or not.
