Absolute Things You Need From A Water Damage Expert

Jul 9, 2008
After your home has been flooded from a natural disaster of some sort, it can be a relief and a trauma at the same time when you are finally allowed to return to the home. It is a relief because you hopefully find that your house is still standing and the water has receded, but it can also be traumatic because you can actually see first hand all the damage that has been done to your belongings and to the home itself.

Hopefully, you have flood insurance in place to help you repair the damage, if not, you may have to find assistance from other sources and this can be a long, time consuming process. If you are covered with insurance, you need to contact them immediately. They will send someone out to go over the home. They will likely have a water damage expert come in to give an accurate assessment of the damage. The insurance company might pick a water damage company for you, but you need to be aware of all the things they should be responsible to take care of.

Removing your personal belongings is something that a good water damage business will do. Your home might have been exposed to toxic chemicals and sewage which can be common when severe flooding has taken place. They will know the proper procedure to take to remove items and can likely tell you what might be saved and what can not. The insurance company will probably pay to have your salvageable items stored if necessary while the clean up is done.

If your insurance company gets a water damage business for you, they will make sure that they are licensed and insured. If you are hiring someone yourself because you do not have flood insurance, it will be up to you to make sure that they are properly licensed and insured. Either way, you want them to be responsible if they cause any additional damage to your home or if the repairs are not done properly.

A qualified water damage business should be well trained in the clean up and removal of mold as well as water. Mold can leave a toxic element in the home that can cause more extensive destruction and make your family sick as well. Mold must be eliminated entirely to prevent it from returning. You will want a crew to start your home restoration as quickly as possible because the longer water is present the more likely it is to cause structural damage and mold.
