How to Keep Claim Costs Down: A Guide to Quick and Effective Water Damage Response
January 17, 2024
Responding Swiftly to Water Damage
Water damage is a silent menace that can wreak havoc on your property if not addressed promptly. Even a slow drip can lead to the wastage of 15 to 20 gallons a day, and a pinhole-sized leak can result in the loss of 100 gallons within 24 hours. Swift response is crucial to mitigating these issues and keeping claim costs down.
The Impact of Permeable Materials
Permeable materials and contents have the ability to absorb water with sustained exposure. This not only increases the overall cost of restoration but also expands the size of the project. Some materials may be salvageable today, but with time, they might become unsalvageable, emphasizing the importance of immediate action.
The Speed of Water Extraction Matters
It's been noted that extracting water is 500 times faster than relying on forced evaporation and dehumidifiers. Acting swiftly in the extraction process is vital to preventing secondary damage in areas that were not initially affected by water damage.
Rapid Response to Prevent Microbial Growth
Microbial growth, particularly mold, can occur rapidly if water damage is not addressed promptly. Responding quickly not only minimizes water damage claims but also prevents the need for filing a claim in the first place.
