What to do When Filing a Claim
When you have a water damage it is one of the most overwhelming things to deal with. We want to help it be a little less overwhelming. Here are a the steps you should take in order to expedite the process and do the right thing by your homeowners insurance company.
The first thing you should do is find your policy information. You insurance company should be sending your full updated policy information once a year after the renewal date. It is important to know the details of you policy, for example if you have flood coverage or a mold cap on your policy.
If you are reporting a claim it is best to do it as soon as you are aware of a problem. The longer you put off filing a claim the longer the entire process could potentially take.
Pictures say a 1,000 words. Picture evidence is likelier to get your claim moving much faster and get approval to get your home back to normal.
When filing your insurance claim make sure you give them all of the information you need to for them to full make a claim process. If they do not have all of the required information it is hard for them to approve of anything and move forward.
To avoid filing as few claims as possible over the time span of your homes life, make sure to keep up your homes maintenance. The highest reason for homeowner claims is unkempt homes.
