Frequently Asked Questions About Water Damage

Yes, in general, a standard homeowners insurance policy provides coverage for sudden and accidental damage that originates from within your home. However, it's important to note that you may not be covered if the water damage is a result of external flooding or neglecting necessary repairs. However, if you live in a flood-prone area, you may consider purchasing a separate flood insurance policy through the National Flood Insurance Program.

Furthermore, some policies may not automatically cover sewer and drain backups. However, you have the option to purchase a separate sewer backup rider, which can be added to your homeowners or renters' coverage to provide protection against such incidents.

Water Damage Restoration
Rating 5 5 Star Disaster Restoration Rating

“We had a major damage when the water pipe from the ceiling burst (see attached pictures 1 to 3 before restoration). Our insurance company (All State) referred us to Service Master. We were so happy about the subsequent clean up, remediation and restoration performed by Service Master. Raja Devini and his crew were outstanding! We highly recommend Service Master!!!”

Water Damage Restoration
Rating 5

“We had these guys out to take care of our moisture remediation after our upstairs neighbor’s washer hoses broke, sending water all over a portion of her unit and then leaking through our bathroom ceiling. The two techs who initially came were very professional, knowledgeable, kind, and thorough, leaving nothing to chance. They checked everywhere with their moisture detectors in and around the bathroom. Once the insurance work was squared away, they returned along with a very nice technician, Lennard who is just the same as they are. After their humidifier, and other heat apparatuses were installed, another technician, Julio returned a couple times to check on the abatement and today to take everything out; he too is very thorough, knowledgeable, kind, and knows his stuff. As another Yelper said, they only do clean up and abatement, not repairs and painting. If you are ever in a situation like this, call these guys. You will be glad you did. Keep up the good work guys.”
