It’s important to have insurance so that when a disaster does strike, you know what you’re dealing with. Water damage claims are one of the most frequently filed claims by property owners, and the damage can come in several different forms. These damages can also be potentially denied coverage if you fail to act quickly when the damage is discovered.
As a property owner, you’ll want to minimize any further damages the moment you find them. For a leaky roof or pipe, you’ll want to patch it to the best of your ability. If you have a major leak coming directly from your interior pipelines, shutting the water off ASAP is a must. Some damage can take a while to be noticed, but the second it becomes apparent you have to act quickly. Don’t throw out anything damaged, as your water damage claim is more likely to be maximized with the more evidence you’re able to provide.
Once in contact with your insurance provider, you’ll begin the process of filing paperwork including proof of loss forms. After which you’ll be waiting for a claims adjuster provided by your insurance to come out and take a look at the damage in person. Keep in mind, a claims adjuster who works directly for your provider is interested in keeping the cost ceiling low; you may be better off seeking a public claim adjuster. If this is an option, it will do wonders for maximizing your water damage claim. After a claim has been processed, it’ll be up to your insurance company to determine approval.
