Water & Mold Damage Claims
Water & Mold Damage
Believe it or not, water damage is the most common type of claim that gets filed through insurance companies. Water damage can come in many different ways. It can be external - such as rains, floods, and hurricanes. It can also be internal - a pipe can break, a leak can spring, or a plumbing backup can cause water to enter your home and cause damage to your property.
Water can not only damage your property but if left undetected, can cause mold to grow. Mold is unsafe for a variety of reasons. It decreases the quality of your breathing conditions and can cause health issues. Respiratory issues can eventually arise as well as allergies. This can have long-term effects on your health.
If your home has suffered water damage or mold, getting everything cleaned up is the important first step. Untreated mold growth can continue to spread and make your home not only unsafe for your health, but an issue to sell in the future if you are looking to do so.
Gathering the weight of the damage and filing it to your insurance claim can allow you to have money to help pay for the repairs. It is important that a full assessment of damage gets done. At times, insurance companies will try and under-evaluate the damage that the mold and/or water have caused. Be sure that the assessment is complete so that you get all the compensation that you deserve for something that was out of your control.
