Water Damage Insurance Claim Tips

MONDAY, DECEMBER 05, 2016

here is nothing insignificant about water damage. No matter whether it was your furniture, walls, carpet, or the very structural integrity of your home that took the hit, it can seriously compromise the market value of your property and even put the health and safety of your family at risk by providing the right conditions for mold and mildew growth.

Whether the damage was caused by a pipe burst or a natural disaster, the required repairs can be expensive. If you are going to submit a water damage claim to the insurance company, it is of the utmost importance to do it right.

Our Tips

You want to make sure you have all the bases covered when filing the claim, so please take a look at some of our water damage insurance claim tips.

  1. The damage to your property and contents should be thoroughly documented at each stage with photos of the loss: before the process of water mitigation, during the process and after our work is completed. You could hire professionals who are trained to prepare sketches and create drying logs for your insurance company, or just ask the restoration company what information you will need to provide. This will help your claim to be processed quickly and accurately.
  2. If your professional service company deals directly with insurance companies, they may be able to send estimates and bills themselves. That would be one less thing for you to worry about.
  3. Please review your insurance policy to ensure that you understand what it covers and what it doesn't cover in terms of water related damages. There is a chance that not all water damage will be covered by your policy.
  4. Sometimes insurance carriers are unwilling to cover all the water mitigation and extraction work required to prevent or remove mold growth in a home affected by water damage which not only causes financial damage but also poses a genuine health risk. These are very serious consequences that should be dealt with immediately. If your insurance company is hesitating to pay you for a water damage, you can hire a public adjuster to advocate for you and for the reasonable expenses of the restoration.
  5. Hiring a public adjuster is a good idea anyway. The adjuster who works for the insurance company represents their interests, not yours. They usually try to minimize the settlement amount to save the insurance carrier some money. This can result in a smaller payout on your claim.
