A True Property Emergency is when there is standing water in the property. If there as been a water intrusion, through any source and you have standing water. Water that is in your property and the floor and or other materials are saturated. You need to call a restoration company to extract the excess water, remove any affected materials and set up commercial drying equipment. We consider standing water an emergency because the quicker we can respond to the loss and start the drying out process, less damage will occur to the property, furnishing and materials. A few examples of this is a broken pipe, overflowing washing machine, a hole pouring in water from the roof. This type of loss would be responded to immediately, regardless, of the time of day. Call us immediately and we will dispatch our team of qualified experts tp begin the process. It does not matter if it is a holiday or the weekend. We are here for you. Also, it important to note, that when there is a water loss, it is not necessary to have an estimate prior to starting the drying out process. In fact, the insurance industry wants the process to begin immediately; thus doing so will help keep the cost down for you and/or your insurance claim. In addition, the longer you wait to respond to the water loss it can increase further damage to your property causing inconvenience and frustration, and increase the cost.
