What kind of water damage in my Buford residence should I claim on insurance?
When people think about having to call their insurance company and file a claim on their Buford residence, they usually have questions. What's going to happen? Will my rates go up? Is it worth the hassle or should I just pay for the damages out of pocket? All important questions. However, every situation is different and the answer will vary from case to case. Here are a couple guidelines to helping you decide what will be right for you.
How long has it been going on? If this is a simple matter of one of your kids splashing in the bathtub, then you should be fine with throwing down a couple towels and calling it a day. On the other hand, if your bathtub has been slowly dripping, such a small amount that went unnoticed for a couple days or even weeks, then a towel is not going to be useful here. In some cases, such as an entire basement flooding or someone put liquid dish soap in the dishwasher causing what would be a kids dreamworld (And an adults nightmare) to appear in the kitchen, these things just seem a bit more obvious on the necessity of calling in a professional.
Slow leaks that cause water damage in your Buford home are probably the most dangerous and damaging leaks you could have. These leaks can go a long time without being noticed and the longer it goes the more dangerous and costly it becomes. Some slow leaks when first noticed seem like only minor water damage but once thoroughly investigated and taken care of its not uncommon for it to end up being tens of thousands of dollars in water damage.
Fast leaks, could be when a pipe bursts because of a cold snap, a flash flood filling up your basement, or an overflow of a tub or toilet that cause major water damage. The freezing and thawing of a supply line will cause an eruption with water damage in your Buford home during the winter. Or, a toilet overflowing could make its way through multiple levels of your house. Both of these things can cause a severe amount of water to damage the house and contents in it, but is one worse then the other?
Examining just what happened.. What type of water was leaking? Was it from a drain pipe or a supply pipe? This simple question can determine the severity of damage. Any water coming from a drain line is labeled either gray water or black water. Black water is waste water, for example if a toilet bowl overflows, this water carries bad bacteria that can spawn into more harmful things like mold. Anything that black water touches should be removed by professionals, cleaned, and hauled away properly.
Even in a situation where you have a slow clean water (or white water) leak, your not safe from the effects of mold. The slow leaks cause the moisture to build up in between walls and floor cavities where the humidity builds and without anything to quickly dry it up from inside the walls, it is the perfect environment to spawn mold. The houses in Buford, GA. are no strangers to humidity. In fact just leaving your house's air conditioner off while on vacation could cause you to come home to a house filled with mold.
