Understanding Water Damage and Its Effects On Your Home
While water damage is a relatively common occurrence in residential homes, few homeowners fully understand it, much less how to handle it. Castino Restoration discusses the important things you need to know about water damage.
Water Damage Gets Worse Over Time
As soon as your property experiences water damage, the clock is ticking before it gets worse, which is why we recommend doing water damage repair as soon as possible. The extent of the water and moisture damage can increase in just a few hours, and you only have a 24- to 48-hour window before mold starts to grow. If you suspect your home has experienced some form of water damage, you can give us a call and we’ll look into it right away.
Your Insurance May or May Not Cover Water Damage
Not all forms of water damage can be covered by your insurance, so take a good look at your policy. Keep in mind the exclusions that are part of your coverage so you won’t be too surprised if your repair project ends up excluded by your insurance. As a general rule, any form of water damage that is a result of negligence on your part, such as not maintaining the property, is not covered by your insurance.
Seek Aid From a Professional
Flood damage restoration is one of the few home projects that you should always leave to the professionals. Apart from the sheer scope of work that you’ll have to do, it’s also a bit risky, especially if the water has already forced mold to proliferate.
When you work with us, you can count on our expertise and professional workmanship to address your water damage problem in no time. We’re also more than happy to assist you with your insurance claims, and we’ll be more than happy to represent you and your interests as well.
