Fast moving storms swept through the Chicagoland area last night flooding streets, knocking down power lines and damaging property through hail, wind and water. Did you sustain damage to your property? If so, keep reading for more information.
When water damage occurs, it is important that you locate a certified water damage restoration company that has the equipment to thoroughly dry your property as quickly as possible.
Water damage is progressive and items that could be restored within the first 48 hours of the water damage may not be restored if emergency response is delayed. Although you might be tempted to use a shop vacuum or call a company that only has equipment to dry carpet, you should consider that water will wick up walls and travel under base molding and sill plates. It will penetrate through floor coverings into sub-floors, even causing water damage in rooms below. In addition, if humidity inside the structure is not controlled, items that were not damaged from the original water damage could be damaged as a result of absorbing moisture from the air. Structures that are not dried out quickly and properly can become a food source for mold growth. Certified water restoration professionals can prevent this from happening if contacted in a timely manner.

Not sure if your water damage will be covered by your insurance company? DO NOT CALL THE 1 800 NUMBER! Speak with your insurance agent BEFORE filing a claim to avoid unpaid claims on your C.L.U.E. Report. Your agent will verify your deductible, your coverage and review your claim history. If you call the 1 800 number you are proceeding in filing a claim and this can result in an unpaid claim if your water damage is not covered by your insurance.
