Water Damage In your Oak Forest Home

1/17/2020 (Permalink)

Water is one of the most common causes of damage in a home and can happen from any number of sources such as severe weather, plumbing/appliances or accidents.

Being familiar with the most common types of water damage is good when you need to call and file a claim with your insurance company. Many people will contact their insurance and immediately state their home is “flooded”. Whilst your child’s favorite board games may be floating in water, it does not mean you have a flood.

If the damaged was caused by an overflowing dish washer or washing machine this would not be categorized as flooding by your insurance company. Some of the most common lingo used by insurance companies are:

  • Sewer backup or Water backup
  • Overflow or discharge
  • Flood

When calling to determine if your water damage is covered your insurance company will ask several questions regarding the potential source of the damage and how the damaged occurred. The insurance company will then send out an adjuster to assess the damage and determine if it is covered.

Many times, it is hard to remember what needs to be done when you are faced with water damage, this is where our expertise in water damage and restoration would be of assistance. In many cases we are able answer questions regarding the insurance process, come out to your home and provide an inspection, and contact your adjuster to get approvals for emergency services over the phone hours after the damage has occurred.

Moving quickly can minimize the amount of damage done to ceilings, walls, floors and personal items and the amount of time needed to restore your home back to preloss condition.

If you have encountered water damage in your Oak Forest home, please contact us (708) 532-3377.

We are available 24/7!
