Do I Need To Make An
There are a lot of factors that a homeowner must consider before making an insurance claim. Firstly, the full scope of the damage caused by the water has to be correctly estimated. Most people are naive and simply believe that draining the water out of the carpet is all that needs to be done. However, this is not true. There are problems that are not really visible on the surface. You might be surprised to know that building materials like sheet rock and wood absorb water as quick as 1 inch per hour! The moisture turns out to be a nice breeding ground for mold.
To detect this moisture, special equipment called a moisture meter is needed. Once analyzed, you can make a decision on whether or not the damage warrants placing a claim. Beware of companies that try to pocket your money by suggesting you to make a claim, even before they visit your home. A fully qualified technician needs to inspect the problem before making a suggestion to you. Colorado Disaster Cleanup Services offers you a free visit to your home and will provide you with a FREE ESTIMATE** after analyzing the damage.
Colorado Disaster Cleanup Services has tied up with almost all insurance companies, thus making the process of working through an individual insurance company a lot easier. Mostly, we bill your insurance company directly, after collecting your deductibles. This is advantageous to you as you don’t have to break your head about the insurance. Leave the job to us and consider it taken care of. In case you decide not to place an insurance claim with your insurance provider, we require about 65% down to get started on the job. The balance can be paid after project completion. You can have your questions answered by getting in touch with our support. The support team is available 8 AM to 6 PM on Monday through Saturday.

Can an insurance company advise me
regarding the best choice for a Restoration Company?
This is against the law and insurance companies do not have the authority to advice you in this aspect. Some insurance companies however, will use masked threats and force you to opt for a restoration company of their choice. As a property owner, you should know that your word is final in selecting a restoration company.Colorado Disaster Cleanup is recognized by all major insurance companies and we use billing practices that are acceptable widely.
What About Sewage?
Any material originating beyond the trap can be classified as Sewage. This is one of the most dangerous forms of water loss that can occur inside a home. People have a misconception that water coming up a floor drain does not pose any danger. If the water has reached the sewer line, it becomes a gateway for deadly viruses to reach your home.
Do It Yourself!
Educate yourself about the extent of damage. Identifying the full scope of the damage is the primary criteria that can help you decide whether or not you can fix the water damage problem on your own.
Clearly Categorize the Type of loss:
The insurance companies typically recognize three types of damages from water losses.
Water loss occurs from a sanitary water source and does not pose substantial risk to humans from inhalation exposure or from dermal ingestion.
- Forgetting to turn off a sink, causing it to overflow
- A culinary waterline freezes and breaks
Fixing the Problem:
Carpets need not be removed and can be dried in place with appropriate drying equipment. It is not necessary to remove sheetrock unless it becomes structurally unsafe. Floor coverings like linoleum and vinyl should be removed, in order to get the water out and prevent mold growth.
Water contains unsafe levels of microorganisms or nutrients for organic as well as inorganic matter. This can be considered an elevated potential hazard.
- A washing machine gets damaged and spills dirty water onto your carpet
- Toilet water containing urine overflows
Fixing the Problem:
To prevent bacterial growth and fasten the drying process, padding needs to be removed. It is not necessary to remove sheetrock unless it becomes structurally unsafe. Floor coverings like linoleum and vinyl should be removed, in order to get the water out and prevent mold growth.
Water is extremely contaminated and contains toxic substances like pesticides and heavy metals. This may have the potential to cause serious health conditions and even death. Category 3 typically includes water that emanates from a source beyond the pea trap.
- Toilet back flows originating from beyond the trap
- Flooding from seawater, rainwater and other events related to the weather
Fixing the Problem:
All substances in contact with this category of water should be disposed of. The water may not look dirty or contain any kind of visible impurities but, might still be very dangerous. Furniture, pad, sheetrock and all remaining items must be disinfected.
