Water Damage and Commercial Insurance Claims
Most commonly caused by broken pipes, faulty plumbing, ice dams, or leaky roofs, water damage can strike your business without warning. Water flow from an undetected leak can quickly cause considerable damage to your possessions and the building’s structural elements.
The hours immediately following the discovery of water damage are critical to both the recovery of your property and to your commercial insurance claim. To file your claim, you need to make certain that all of the damage is properly documented and identified before you can start clearing out the affected property. Since mold and mildew can begin to form within 24-48 hours, starting the cleanup efforts should also be a top priority.
When time is of the essence, it is important to have professionals on your side to ensure that you get what you are due from your insurance settlement. The experts at Adjusters International/Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro will be there from the very beginning of the process to help you with both your recovery efforts and with your insurance claim.
