Quick quiz to test your homeowners insurance knowledge: Do you think more homeowners file water damage claims or fire damage claims every year?

If you guessed water damage claims, then you picked the right answer.

Fire damage claims have been falling steadily, but experts estimate that one in 50 American homeowners will file a water damage claim in 2021. That makes them one of the most common claims filed on homeowners insurance policies.

Help Managing Water Leaks and Damage

Sometimes leaks that are caught early can be cleaned up with a few towels. But in other cases, you may need professional help to prevent damage to your property.

Your first step toward restoration is knowing the signs of damage and what to do if you spot them.

Here’s what you might notice when you’re dealing with water damage that merits professional cleaning and remediation:

Your home has a distinctive, musty smell. Does your home have a musty odor? That can be among the first signs of mold damage, meaning if you notice that scent, it’s time to call in a professional to help you deal with remediation issues.

Your floorboards or furniture are warped. Wet wood will start to warp within just a few days. If that happens in your home, it’s best to start seeking help from professionals who can help you restore your home.

You notice your windows or walls are stained and damaged. Like your floors, your window panes and walls can start to warp if the water damage is severe enough. That means it’s vital if you notice these signs to get remediation help.

If you have water damage in your home due to a burst pipe or another cause, you can count on us for restoration assistance. We have teams who are available 247 in the event of an emergency. Contact us at any time to learn more about our restoration services.
