Flood Damage

Does My Plumber Handle Flood Damage?

You get up one morning and walk downstairs to find water all over the kitchen floor and cabinets. It’s apparent that a pipe burst from above the kitchen and the water damage is significant. The big question is, does my plumber handle flood damage or do I call someone else? It would depend on a few things, such as does your plumbing company handle insurance claims and flood damage repairs?  If you use a plumbing company that you’re comfortable with, chances are that plumbing company will give you a recommendation. The way it works is the referring plumbing company will usually be contracted out for the plumbing services, and the flood damage company will handle the water damage. Both companies work hand in hand.

Flood Damage and Plumbing Go Hand In Hand

There are some exceptions; for example, for a flood isolated to a small area like a laundry room your plumbing company may be best suited to handle the job from start to finish.  Flood damage and plumbing go hand in hand, but here lies the problem, while the plumbing was the cause of the flood the collateral damage to the drywall, cabinets, flooring must be repaired. Whatever the case, fixing the issue fast is strongly advised especially if sewage is involved. If the problem is not resolved, mold can begin to form in 24 to 48 hours. If left unchecked, spores can develop in 3 to 12 days and in 18-21 days, the mold is visible.

Don’t Get Overwhelmed With Your Water Damage

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when your home is overcome with water damage. The fact is, water damage isn’t some random event, statistics show that 37% of households claim to have had water damage to some degree and 14,000 people each day will experience a water disaster in the US each day.  Whether it comes from a storm, flood waters, or broken pipe we need to have a trusted place to turn and the most common place to turn is your trusted plumbing contractor. They will give you the direction you need to point you in the right direction. Your homeowner insurance may also have a recommendation.
