Why Shouldn’t I Hire My Insurance Company’s Preferred Vendor?
Response Time: Directly contacting a restoration company often results in faster response times compared to waiting for your insurance company's vendor.
Loyalty: You deserve a contractor that prioritizes your interests over strict instructions from the insurance company.
Delays: Some insurance companies may impose unnecessary delays by requiring approval before repairs can proceed.
Accountability: Working with a single restoration contractor eliminates gaps in accountability and ensures a seamless restoration process.
Mold: Preferred vendors may have limitations on how mold issues are addressed, potentially resulting in higher costs for you.
Incomplete Drying: Preferred vendors may follow insurance company instructions that go against industry standards, putting your home at risk.
Convenience: You have the right to choose who works on your property, regardless of insurance company recommendations.
Frequently Asked Questions About Flood, Fire & Mold Damage
Get help with water damage whenever there is an accident, a leak, or an appliance problem that gets anything wet in your home. It doesn’t have to be visibly wet to lead to serious damage.
If wood or other organic materials are at 17% moisture content or above they are at risk of growing mold. If they stay wet for more than a few days mold can grow. Once mold grows, the same drying options are not available and more demolition is necessary. Whenever you have a water damage event have it checked out to avoid more serious damage.
Water damage restoration is a professional service that involves cleaning up, drying, repairing, and restoring homes or businesses that have been damaged by water. This typically includes water extraction, drying and dehumidification, cleaning and sanitizing, repair, and, finally, full restoration.
It depends on the specifics of your insurance policy and the cause of the water damage. Many policies will cover damage that is sudden and accidental but may not cover gradual leaks or poor maintenance. It’s critical to contact your insurance company as soon as possible to understand your coverage.
Food: Smoke can penetrate most packaging. All food stored in the home should be carefully inspected before deciding to keep it or not. If in doubt, throw it out!
Refrigerator: The refrigerator is often overlooked after a fire. Carefully inspect the inside of your refrigerator before compromising your family’s health. You should never store food in a refrigerator affected by smoke damage.
Plants: House plants can suffer long-term effects after being exposed to smoke. In most cases, simply wiping down the plant can be helpful. Leaving the plants outdoors to help regenerate affected cells can help restore your plant’s health.
Clothing: A fire may have happened on the other side of your property; however, smoke travels further than flames. Be sure to clean all clothing that may have been exposed to smoke.
Examples Of Common Water Damage Events
Pipe LeakPipe leaks come in all sizes from small to large. Even if it seems minor, get it checked out; hidden dampness can take weeks to dry on its own. Also, if you should choose to call your insurance, have us inspect the damage first. We can advise you on the costs and coverage before you call your insurance company about your water damage event.
Toilet OverflowDepending on how much water, how contaminated it was, what the floor coverings are, and how many levels are below, it could be minor or serious. Don’t risk your home or your health, get it checked out. Sewage damage should never be ignored.
Water HeaterWater heaters don’t last forever. When they get old, they may get cranky and unpredictable, releasing large amounts of water from the pressure release valve. Or it may start with a smaller leak. These water damage events are usually a single level, but still a good idea to get it checked out and dried properly.
Dishwasher LeakThese leaks can start small and may go unnoticed for some time. It is definitely a good idea to have a restoration company that is loyal to you inspect the water damage BEFORE you call your insurance.
Freeze DamageIf a pressurized pipe freezes, it will begin to release water as soon as it thaws and continue until the water is turned off. If no one is home and the water continues to run, it can add up to a lot of water and a lot of water damage.
If the hose bib or water line to an outside faucet freezes the pipe won’t leak until the faucet is turned on. These leaks are typically discovered in spring and summer when you are using your outside faucets. Water runs down the inside of walls. Get help to make sure everything gets dried properly.
Sewer Line Back-UpBy definition, this is grossly unsanitary water. It is referred to as category 3 or black water. Special precautions should be taken to clean and disinfect materials, protect occupants and dry the structure properly. Hepatitis and E. coli are just some contaminants that may be present. Don’t risk your home or your health, call for help and get it done right.
Ground WaterDO NOT CALL YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY until you have had the water damage and cause inspected by a restoration company that is loyal to you. Groundwater seepage is usually not covered on most insurance policies, but the slightest detail may make a difference.
Once you’ve had a groundwater event, consider installing a sump pump. If the sump pump is successful at keeping the water out, call your insurance company and add a rider to cover the sump pump. $10,000 minimum, $25,000+ recommended. In the future, if you have a groundwater problem, it should be covered on your regular insurance policy.
Refrigerator Line LeakDepending on the floor covering in the kitchen and if the level below is furnished this type of leak could be serious. Get it checked out. You don’t want to miss any dampness that could take a long time to dry.
Sprinkler Or Hose ProblemThis is a very common water damage problem in Utah because we have basements. Many people are focused on the wet carpet, but getting the carpet dry is the easy part. The carpet will dry before the walls dry.
If there is a silver lining, this type of water damage is covered on most insurance policies but not all. Call a restoration company that is loyal to you to inspect the damage BEFORE you call your insurance company.
Ice DammingBecause the amount of water that makes it to the floor may not seem like a lot of water, a lot of people ignore or minimize the damage. Although the dampness on the floor may be small, the walls are soaked, and they will stay soaked for weeks or months unless they are dried out.
This type of water damage is not as minor as it may seem. Call for professional help.
