Is Do It Yourself Water Damage Restoration Right For You

 Can You Do It Yourself?

So you had a home or  water damage restoration  experience, and you want to restore it yourself right? if it’s minor situation you may save some of money by doing it yourself and dodge the high risk of your insurance policy rates going Up or lessen the chance of a policy cancellation altogether.

You need to have a few basic abilities prior to tackling this job yourself, so let’s get into those abilities.

  • Be in Good physical condition (Lifting Furniture, Heavy Wet Carpet Pad/Carpet)
  • Being a good handyman or having a friend or relative to help you with remodeling skills.
  • Dry, Warm Weather, for 3 days minimum, the less humid in the outside climate the better!
  • $100.00 minimum to Rent Air Movers or Air Blowers at your local rental yard (not always available).

How to talk to insurance adjusters: (Insurers record incoming calls, Not a scare tactic)! Use the term FLOOD and not Water Damage and you’re on your way to a most likely denial of reimbursement costs for water damages. What you say can be held against you for possible claim denial! Your homeowners insurance does not cover damage from a flood.
If you have serious water damage you are going to need professional help, otherwise you might end up costing yourself a lot more money in the long run. Failing to completely remove all the water and moisture is setting up an ideal situation for mold growth. This will require professional technicians to complete the drying and the mold remediation of the mold that has taken hold
