How To Handle Water Damage On Your Agoura Home
Agoura Home Water Damage Suggestions from SERVPRO
Addressing the issue immediately of Agoura water damage is important because it helps ensure that your property is not subjected to secondary water damage. Once your home has been damaged by fire or a flood, water damage is typically the primary, urgent issue you'll confront. Additionally, nipping the water damage problem in the bud will lessen the likelihood of structural problems and mold growth. To ensure that you can resolve all water damage issues quickly and correctly, SERVPRO suggests reading the below informational guide.
Call Your Insurance Company for Water Damage and Restoration. Water intrusion caused by structural failures, appliances, and plumbing are normally covered under a standard homeowners policy. Water damage caused by flooding or storms may not be covered. As soon as you become aware of water damage on your property, be sure to call your insurance company. Your insurance agent will have an adjuster come out to your property and complete a water damage assessment. Additionally, the adjuster will help you start the claims process. SERVPRO advises calling us to cooperate with your agent to expedite the water removal and implement an action plan. Remember to take photos of the personal possessions and structural materials that have been impacted by the water damage (as will SERVPRO.)
Contact A Water Damage Restoration Company.
After you call your insurance agent, be sure to contact a water damage restoration company. We will be able to complete each component of the water damage restoration process, including cleanup, water extraction, drying, and content restoration upon a signed agreement. Our thorough assessment and inspection will provide our skilled technicians a clear understanding of the damages done and how to address them. We are also ready to work with contractors of your choosing to expedite the process.
Avoid DIY Projects. Although you may be tempted to start the water damage cleanup process on your own, don't do it if significant volumes of water are present in your Agoura home. Health hazards that result from flood contaminants or sewage backup are very real. Also, without proper and total drying of the structure mold can proliferate leading to possible health issues. Consider the safety factor of walking on a slippery floor or stepping on a hidden object that may cause injury.
