One of the most common types of property insurance claims is water damage claims or flood damage claims. Water will always find the path of least resistance. Water damage is also one of the most expensive repairs for a residential or commercial property owner. Damage to your home from water can include burst or leaking pipes, toilet overflow, other plumbing issues or severe storms. It’s possible that a large amount of water can damage your buildings foundation. Additionally, if water damage is not remediated immediately, mold will form and destroy the interior of the building.
Water damage can happen from:
• Snow and ice
• Burst pipes

Is this type of damage covered by most homeowners or business policies? Well, the answer is, it really depends on the type of insurance policy you have. Let the professionals at Community Public Adjusters determine whether your toilet overflow and resulting damage to your property is covered.

When dealing with toilet overflows and other plumbing issues that result in water damage claims, quick action is needed to stabilize the damage to your property and contain the water! Water can damage property components and your personal property very fast if you are slow to react. The first step is to minimize the damage and stop the leak. A licensed plumber may be needed to properly make the repairs.
The next step, drying and cleaning the water damage as soon as possible. An experienced emergency services or restoration company may provide the best mitigation.
Next, after remediating the damage, a general contractor may be needed to perform the repairs and get your property back to normal.
During the water damage claim repairs, some additional code upgrade related repairs may be needed, most policies have code upgrade coverage options. This coverage is very important, especially, for older buildings.
File Your Water Damage Immediately
Community Public Adjusters recommends contacting a local public adjuster before you communicate with your insurance company. When directly communicating with your insurance company, make sure you provide details of the water damage incident, including the date of the damage, location of the water damage, list of damaged items, and general condition of your home. The water damage insurance claims process is lengthy and tedious. Therefore, it is important to retain a public adjuster to handle all aspects of your water damage claim from the beginning. Even if you are in contact with your insurance provider, you may still need to take on some initial expenses yourself. The expenses you may incur immediately after a water damage claim can consist of temporary housing or relocating. Therefore, it’s extremely important to contact Community Public Adjusters as soon as water damage occurs to your property. Community Public Adjusters will minimize your out of pocket expense and request compensation from the insurance company to maintain your lifestyle and/or keep your business running.
