Slide2:

Water Damage: Damage that occurs to personal property, buildings, vehicles, nature, and so forth, as a result of flooding, heavy rains, or other major disasters involving water.

Slide3:

You need separate (read: different) insurance policies for water damage and flood damage to a home or business. Water is water, but when it comes to insurance the cause is everything. 1

Slide4:

Insurance won’t cover ALL water damage issues. Most policies cover sudden damage, but refuse to cover water damage that results from poor maintenance and upkeep, for example. 2

Slide5:

Getting water damage cleaned up is priority #1 . The longer it goes unresolved, the worse it will get, carrying damage through different areas of the home and eventually leading to a potentially dangerous or harmful situation that cannot be easily repaired. 3

Slide6:

The pollution level of the water is really important. It might sound odd, but the professionals are going to want to know how polluted the water was so that they can assess how bad the damage is. 4

Slide7:

Pollution Categories Category 1 : Water from Clean Sources Category 2 : Water that May Have Bacteria, Contact Contamination Category 3 : Highly Contaminated Water (sewage backup, eg .)

Slide8:

Your insurance company needs to know immediately. They need to know what happened to cause the damage, when it happened, the source of the water to file the claim appropriately, and other details of the damage claim. 5

Slide9:

Water damage is serious. Before you get out your phone and start Facebooking the tragedy, call your insurance company and get this taken care of before it becomes a bigger nightmare than it has to be. www.steam-brite.com/ www.facebook.com/steambrite www.twitter.com/steambrite www.youtube.com/steambrite
