When it comes to water damage

Water damage isn’t something that any of us want! If you are a homeowner, it can be helpful to read this article even if you haven’t experienced water damage. We here at Warren Restoration like to help our customers be as prepared as possible, so we have compiled a list of four things we want you to know about water damage problems.

  1. Not all insurance for water damage is the same. There is water damage, and then there is flood damage. They are two completely different things. This can be confusing, but flood damage usually occurs from things like living in a flood zone, excessive rainwater or sewage backup, whereas water damage is caused by a burst pipe, washer overflowing, etc.
  2. There are different types of water. When it comes to water damage, did you know that there are different types of water? Most insurance and damage control companies will rate your water into 3 categories: clean water, water that can contain bacteria, and water that is highly contaminated.
  3. Water damage needs immediate attention. No matter what type of water damage you have, it needs immediate attention. Mold can start growing within 24-48 hours after water exposure, so time is of the essence!
  4. Your insurance company needs to know. The first call you make after discovering your water damage should be to cleanup and damage restoration experts. The second needs to be to your insurance company.

If you are the victim of water damage in any way or form, please contact us here at Warren Restoration immediately.
