Filing Water Damage Insurance Claim

Any type of water damage causes major disruption in your life!

You might have experienced a major flood, or maybe your dishwasher leaked while you were away and water damage repair is needed for your oak floor or vinyl floor.

Here's the facts. You call the insurance company,  they might tell you to get an estimate or they might send a water mitigation insurance adjuster. This guy represents the insurance company and you now know who his estimate for water damage is  going to favor.

The water mitigation insurance adjuster can not pull one over on us. We know how to properly effect the necessary repairs and we will itemize all the work that is needed.

You probably do not now about the "dryout process" from a flooded area. Regardless of how much building material is torn out and thrown away the area needs to be dried out with special fans, dehumidifiers along with professional monitoring equipment. Only when wood has a certain percentage of water can it be covered and reused..... other wise you invite mold and basteria.

Flooded Basement Dryout Cleanup

Water Dryout is the first step in getting your flooded basement back into a livable state.

Flooded Basement Dryout

One of the most common flooding situations is a flooded basement. Basement flooding comes from many sources such as appliances, water pipes, hot water heater, and outside water sources such as rain, roof, snow or cracks in the basement foundation.

If the basement is finished we come in and demo all needed building materials and contents. These will only start to grow mold in days and then mold remediation is required.

We come in with a truck load of special drying fans, commercial dehumidifiers, heaters and dryers. Moisture readings are kept and checked multiple times a day and often the water damage repair and dryout will take days!

Did you know that water will actually penetrate the concrete and needs to dried and extracted? Again, we specialize in this.... often times going out at 1:00 AM to start a job so your water damage does not progress to the point of total rebuild. Call us so we can talk to your water mitigation insurance adjuster to find out exactly what they might require for you to get paid the most.

Our water dryout and water damage estimates are based on a database of costs used by the insurance companies and adjusters so there is no way the adjuster can try and cheat you from what you deserve. This is our specialty and the software and database are very expensive, something only few water mitigation contractors invest in and use as a tool to help their customers...... very important for you.

Water Damaged Oak Floor

One of the most common types of residential and commercial water damage is oak hardwood flooring.  Water damaged hardwood flooring soaks up water like a sponge and in the process will twist and cup severely.

Hardwood floor repair is usually done by removing and replacing. Sometimes oak, hickory or walnut water damaged floors can be dried will little to no damage.

Speed is important when considering your flooded area. Call us immediately and often times we can get there within hours and start drying out your flooded area saving both you and the insurance company.

Don't worry, we will deal with insurance companies and insurance adjusters to make sure your water mitigation goes as smoothly as possible! Call at 815-529-7279 or send me an email at chris AT
