Below Are Important Recommended Steps:
- In the event a pipe bursts, shut off water to prevent further damage and save the damaged pipe (which the insurance company may want to see).
- Take photos of all damaged areas.
- Arrange for a remediation company to work immediately to mitigate your losses/perform emergency services (water extraction, dehumidification, etc.). When mitigating a loss, it is often necessary to perform moisture mapping — this will monitor moisture levels and indicate which areas of wet drywall need to be removed.
Water often travels behind walls, under floors, and throughout elevator shafts. Thorough investigation will
allow you to determine the extent of damages and proper permanent repairs needed.
- Have an expert review your property insurance policy to verify that you have appropriate coverage.
Have your public adjuster and emergency service vendors on speed dial (and know their procedures for
being reached 24-7) to be ready to respond immediately in the event of an emergency.
