Visual signs of water damage consist of cracking, bubbling and/or peeling paint, dark spots, and discoloration that keeps getting worse day by day. Musty odors are another sign of water damage. Also, an increase in your utilities bills and sounds of running water or hissing noise from possible pinhole leak in a supply line. Mold growth is another indicator of a water damage which can be an active or past water issue.
According to CSLB, any contracted work for more than $500 that requires the altering or construction to any building (home or business) must be licensed through the California State License Board. Most water damages consist of removing and or drying building materials that requires extensive knowledge. Since water damage restoration is a specialty trade, hiring a licensed water damage contractor is ideal. As license contractors with water damage expertise, we are familiar with dealing with insurance companies, adjusters, and being well-versed in almost all avenues of construction from plumbing, electrical, up to architecture and engineering vs the average contractor that is used to only handle buildings from ground up or through a private contract not involving insurance. We are capable of navigating our clients through the insurance claim while being able to be California compliant with proper licensing and insurance.
We recommend you reach out to your agent to file a claim with your insurance carrier while also describing your damage to the agent who can provide you with an overview of your policy and what you would essentially be covered for.
The best way to prevent water damage is to have an inspection program in place. This might sound like a lot but it’s essentially like the initial home inspection, when you bought the property. In most cases, property owners only do it when they purchase a property and never have it done again. We have a “water damage preventative” package that consist of an inspection of the property to note where potential water damage issues may be present and how they should be corrected. If interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org and mention the “water damage preventative” package in the subject line.
