Get the Most Out of Your Claim
Slow-moving water damages, like pipe leaks, can often have claims reduced or denied without taking thorough stock of the situation. To get optimal coverage when filing your claim:
• Keep records of maintenance and repairs. Not only is this a good practice for your home, but it can help you identify when potential issues occurred or what failures could contribute to them.
• Read your policy. Make sure the terms cover your situation. Understand what responsibilities are considered yours and which ones are taken on by the insurer.
• Maintain your home every spring and fall. Use the ideal weather for maintenance. Small repairs regularly can help you avoid the cost of a more massive disaster.
• Consider upgrading. When looking over your policy, you may find that it does not adequately cover the things you need. Add terms as needed to your plan to make sure you are covered in a way that is tailor-made for your home.
SERVPRO is Here to Help
When technicians come to you, the focus is kept on restoring your home to a preloss condition. However, depending on the damage, some items may need replacement. With enough exposure to water, carpet and pad can experience delamination, making safe reinstallation unfeasible. On top of that, extensive exposure to water can weaken the durability of carpeting by as much as 50%, leaving you with a less fragile flooring solution. Technicians can use rovers, wet/dry vacuums, and extraction wands, among a plethora of other equipment, to prepare your carpet for thorough drying.
