1. “How can I prevent water damage”

Proper maintenance and care of your appliances can help ensure they dont cause a water issue. If you have a septic tank, monthly inspections can allow you to notice if anything looks amiss.

2. “What is the water damage cleaning service process?”

We will have to facilitate an inspection, we will then use our water extraction machinery to remove any standing or access water from the site. Once the water is gone, we start the drying process with dehumidifiers and heavy fans. When the area is dry to our satisfaction, we test the air to make sure the problem is resolved and the moisture and any mold spores have been removed.

3. “Will insurance cover the water damage to my property?”

Whether or not the insurance company will cover the damage depends on the source of the damage, (i.e. whether it was a natural disaster like a flood, or if it was caused by a burst pipe.) The insurance company will also want to make sure that you took the necessary precautions to try and prevent the situation.
