Gradual damage

Examples of tree falling on roof causing water damage & gradual damage

  • Following a water damage claim that was covered as a result of a tree falling on the roof and creating an opening in which water poured into the home, the opening and roof were repaired by the insurance company.
  • The damage in the home was repaired, however, several months later the homeowners noticed a funny smell or paint chipping near where the repairs had been done. They call the insurance company who took care of the claim, and they are advised that there is still humidity or even worse, newly formed mold where the damage had been.

On rare occasions, addition damage may occur after or as a result of a claim, and not be caught. If the gradual damage is a result of the original claim that was covered, the insurance company may decide to cover it.

Water damage & Insurance

8/5/2019 (Permalink)

Why was coverage denied?

Find out if coverage would have been available to you for this kind of damage through an endorsement. You have a right to know what is covered (or could be available) on your insurance for future reference. You may also want to figure out why you did not have it. If it is available elsewhere, consider changing your company for the future.

If you are convinced that your coverage should have applied, or that something is wrong, then you should consider getting a second opinion by a licensed professional or consumer advocacy organization that is familiar with insurance in your region.

Your insurance company may also have an ombudsman that can help review your file. You can also contact your state insurance commissioner for guidance or to file a complaint.

How to avoid having a water damage claim denied

  • Maintain records of repairs and the professionals you have hired over the years to do maintenance. This may become very important in the event of a loss, and is good practice to keep as a homeowner.
  • Make sure you understand all the coverages on your policy, and have a good understanding of the exclusions, as well as your responsibilities as a homeowner.
  • Do regular maintenance of your home every spring and fall to avoid surprises. Small repairs regularly will avoid large expenses.
  • Make sure you purchase the best insurance for your needs, and inquire about extra coverages you can add that may be useful to you.

Disinfect remaining materials

8/5/2019 (Permalink)

When damaged components have been removed, disinfect the whole area before you begin working. The most common choice is a bleach solution, but there are a number of homemade options you can choose from. Lightly spray and wipe down the area before you start water damage repair to help make sure no mold spores linger.

Focus on Ceilings water damage first

Ceilings exposed to water damage are more at risk due to gravity: You don’t want them sagging or collapsing. So, remove affected ceiling panels or boards first. If the ceiling leak is caused by a roof problem, it’s important to find the true source of the leak, which may be somewhere far removed from the water stain.  And take this time to make sure the water caused no structural damage to beams or rafters. You can contact professionals to find out what replacing a water damaged ceiling repair cost job runs.

How fast can water damage ruin a home?

8/2/2019 (Permalink)

The sooner that you send in a professional restoration team, the quicker you will have your home restored to its preloss condition.

Within weeks water damage can turn to mold your home

  • Mold sinks roots into organic materials and destroys their integrity.
  • Occupants must be evacuated.
  • Allergen sensitivity may arise from microbial growth.
  • A complete gutting of the structure may be necessary, which will drive the claim up astronomically and displace the occupants.

Water damage escalates to mold and microbial growth issues in just a few days, which can compromise the health of the inhabitants, including your pets. Given these facts, you must begin to clean up a water damage mess as soon as you can to prevent further damage to your home. Most of these challenges are claims that are covered by your homeowners insurance policy. Reputable restoration firms work with all insurance companies and file all the paperwork on your behalf so you can focus on what matters most in a time of need.

What is Gradual Damage?

8/2/2019 (Permalink)

Gradual damage is when something happens slowly over time and causes damage to your property. Gradual damage due to water damage is a common problem when it comes to insurance claims. An example of gradual damage is when something happens slowly, like paint chipping off a wall it starts with a small chip, then eventually half the wall is uncovered.

Water Damage and Gradual Damage in your home

Homes are full of nooks and crannies, pipes, electrical wiring, ventilation systems. Homes are complex structures, and for the most part, the only parts we see in our homes every day are the walls, the decorations, and our contents. Underneath it all, there are layers of activity, all making your house run.

Without proper maintenance and regular verification of the key components in your home, anything could be going wrong under the surface, and you would never know until the damage causes structural changes or some physical evidence. That's when we try and make a claim.

Unexpected dangers of a leaky roof

7/18/2019 (Permalink)

Here are some of the less-obvious ways a roof leak can damage your home:

  1. Attic and ceiling damage: The initial dangers of a roof leak are damage to the attic area and items stored there. If there is no attic, or the size of the leak is really big, it will damage the interior ceiling. Affected ceiling paint will darken and ceiling plaster may bubble and expand. The leaking water also will damage paint and plaster on nearby walls. You can also expect damage on ceiling-mounted lights and fans.
  2. Interior mold and mildew issues: In the longer term, one of the most serious consequences of a leaking roof is mold and mildew growth. Mold can spread throughout the home’s structure, to the HVAC system and then to the rest of the house through the vents where it can invade carpets, furniture and even clothing.
  3. Fire hazard from water damage: If your electrical wiring is present in an attic or ceiling, a leaky roof could pose a fire threat from shorted wires. It is highly recommended to turn off electricity to the area that’s affected and have an electrician examine it.
  4. Slip and fall hazard: A severely leaking roof can cause water to puddle on the floor. This may not seem like a huge risk, but if you have an active family, and especially if you have children who like to run, you need to get that water mopped up to prevent human spills.
  5. Higher utility bills and wasted energy: High utility bills are another side effect of a leaking roof, as water intrusion is detrimental to the insulation in attic area. Your cellulose or fiberglass insulation becomes saturated and it takes a long time for it to dry out. If a roof leak repair is put off for a long time, chronic water intrusion will deplete the insulation significantly and your home will lose hot and cool air, resulting in higher utility bills.
  6. Compromised structural integrity: The most obvious consequence of a leaking roof is the damaged rafters, ceiling joists, wall framing and even fascia boards and exterior trim can become victims of water intrusion. Chronic roof leaks lead to wood deterioration and weakened; rotten roof framing causes serious problems that require assistance from a professional contractor. You can also face expensive wood framing repairs if water leaks down into ceiling joists and walls.

How to drain water away from your home

7/1/2019 (Permalink)

How to drain water away from your home

  1. Invest in a gutter system.If your home doesn’t have any gutters, consider investing in a gutter system—especially if you live in a rainy climate. 
  2. Inspect your gutters for effectiveness.For your gutters to work properly, they should slope down 12inch (1.3 cm) toward the downspout for every 10 feet (3.0 m), by code.They must also remain free of clogs, holes, and sags. The most common gutter problem is blockage.
  1. Clean your gutters regularly.Gutters should be routinely cleaned of debris at least once per year. 
  1. Inspect your downspouts.Downspouts are the parts of the gutter that run vertically from the roof gutter to the ground.
  1. Install downspout extensions. This is done by attaching an elbow to the end of the downspout and then connecting the extension piece.
  1. 6. Avoid pointing your downspout extensions toward your driveway.In winter, water deposited onto your driveway can freeze, causing a number of dangerous situations.

  2. Inspect the ground slope next to the foundation of your house. Overflowing gutters and inefficient downspouts can erode the ground around the foundation of your home. 
  1. Add enough dirt to create a gentle slope. Instead of just filling the gaps in with soil, add a slight excess of it.

Maintain and understand your indoor plumbing systems

5/1/2019 (Permalink)

Inspect appliance hoses and faucets. Make it a practice every year to check hoses leading to water heaters, dishwashers, washing machines and refrigerator ice makers. You may also want to invest in a water leak monitoring and shut-off system that can alert you to any leakage issues. Immediately replace any hoses that have cracks or leaks, and replace them all every five to seven years.

  • Inspect showers and tubs.Check the seal and caulking around showers and tubs to make sure they are watertight and reseal if necessary.
  • When away on vacation, shut off the water supply to the washing machine and never leave the house while the washer or dishwasher is running.
  • Know the location of the main water shut-off valve in your home. A damaged hose or a burst pipe can send water racing into your home. Being able to locate and shut off the main water supply quickly will save stress, money and time.
  • Install an emergency pressure release valve in your plumbing system. This will protect against the increased pressure caused by freezing pipes and can help prevent your pipes from bursting.
  • Check plumbing and heating pipes. Look closely for cracks and leaks and have any necessary repairs made immediately.

Caulk and seal windows to guard against water seepage.

  • Inspect your roof for missing, damaged and aging shingles and make necessary repairs.
  • Check your downspouts. Remove debris that may have accumulated in downspouts and rain gutters. Position downspouts so that they direct water away from the house.
  • Check sprinklers and irrigation systems to be sure they are not creating water damage to the walls and foundations of the house. Turn off and drain outside faucets to protect against frozen pipes.
  • Install gutter guards to prevent gutter clogs and keep water flowing away from the house instead of accumulating on the roof.

Avoid soggy disasters

4/10/2019 (Permalink)

Water damage is one of the most common and costliest disasters your home can experience, costing billions of dollars annually. Safeguard your most important asset against water damage with the right insurance coverage and the following practical advice.

 Prevent basement water seepage

  • Reseal your basement. Water in the basement is often caused by cracks in building foundations or floor slabs. If you notice water seepage after heavy rain when you've never had a problem, it may mean that your once-waterproof cement floors and basement walls have deteriorated. Painting vulnerable areas with water sealant can prevent seepage.
  • Make sure water drains away from the building. Seepage is exacerbated by soil that has settled in a way to make water flow toward the building. After a storm, and especially if the ground is already saturated, rainwater that flows towards the building goes down the outside of the foundation wall potentially through any cracks.
  • Install a backwater valve. Though less common than other causes of basement water, sewer backups are messy. Learn more about your sewer responsibilitiesand install and maintain a backwater valve, which allows sewage to go out, but not come back in.

What to do when you have water damage

4/1/2019 (Permalink)

If your house is flooded or damaged by a leak or overflow of water, the repairs can be extensive and expensive. Here’s what you can do to help fix the problem.

It’s too late. The sump pump stopped working, and now the basement’s flooded. Or, you didn’t realize the upstairs toilet was overflowing until you noticed water seeping through the ceiling. Whatever the cause of the unexpected flood, there are certain steps to take (and ones to avoid!) that will help minimize the damage.

***Shut off the water***

It might seem obvious, but in a sodden moment of “Oh crap!” and a rush to soak it up, you might forget to locate the source of the leaking water and turn it off.

***Protect the home***

Once the water is shut off, your responsibility is to protect the home from further damage. Place buckets in rooms with active leaks, and move valuable and light furniture to a safe place. Use a tarp in the affected area if necessary.

***Call in a pro***

***Don’t do this!***

A pool of standing water in your house might cause you to panic — which is understandable — but whatever actions you take, avoid messing with anything electric.

***Insurance coverage***

Water damage is stressful let SERVPRO take that stress away

4/1/2019 (Permalink)

When your home is faced with water damage, it is easy to become overwhelmed. Your initial stress will probably result from the fact that your pipe just burst and your basement is flooding, or that your faucet has been leaking for weeks without your knowledge and you can’t possibly wrap your head around how you didn’t notice. After that initial stress sinks in, further stress arrives around damage control, as you scramble around your house trying to reduce the harm currently being done to your home. While a million different thoughts are running around in your head, it can be difficult to focus on what you should be doing. In order to know what you should be doing, it is important to identify what type of water leak you have.

Water Damage Restoration & Clean Up Checklist

8/31/2018 (Permalink)

Water Damage Restoration & Clean Up Checklist

For Homes, Businesses, Schools & More…

After the flood waters recede and the clean up has been done, most folks want to get back into their homes or businesses and start rebuilding. The problem is that wood that has been submerged in water has likely absorbed a large amount of water. Rebuilding too quickly after a flood can cause continuing problems such as mold growth, insect infestations, and deterioration of the wood and wall coverings.

Flood waters are not clean water; therefore, most porous building materials must be removed and replaced with new materials.

Caution!

  • Inspect for structural and electrical damage from outside to determine if it is safe to enter.
  • Electrical safety is extremely important in floods. Check for fire hazards and gas leaks. Use battery-powered light sources.
  • Never mix chlorine bleach with ammonia or vinegar.
  • Wear sturdy shoes, rubber gloves, and eye protection.
  • Be watchful for fire ants, snakes, or other animals.
  • If mold is present, wear a respirator that can filter spores.

First Steps

Make sure that everyone is out of danger of new flood crests, fire, and falling buildings. Assume flood water and flooded materials are contaminated.

Grand Prairie Residents: We Specialize in Flooded Basement Cleanup and Restoration!

3/29/2018 (Permalink)

If flood water is not handled quickly and properly, it can jeopardize your health and safety, and cause severe damage to your home’s structure.

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall. Basements are inherently prone to flooding because they are the lowest level of a building and are normally built partly or entirely below ground level. There are a number of reasons why your Grand Prairie basement could flood, including: 

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

So I checked my phone last night there was no rain in the forecast! As I am getting ready to come to work it's pouring outside and the thunder is so loud that my dogs are going crazy. Then I open garage door and there is hail coming down like crazy. Obviously the weatherman didn't get it right today.

If you woke up this morning to the same situation then it is highly possible that you extremely frustrated because of the traffic and because everyone seems to be driving irrationally.

Did your home get struck by lightning or hail? If so we are here to help.

When lightning strikes it can be very devastating. SERVPRO can assist you in helping tarp your roof, determining between salvageable and non-salvageable contents, tree removal, etc. We are a phone call away!
