Significant Damage water leaks – Home is being destroyed

5/13/2021 (Permalink)

  1. Turn Off Water in Home– Locate your water meter and turn off the water to prevent any more flooding than what has already occurred. If you cannot turn off the water by yourself, contact a plumber immediately to help you turn it off.
  2. Document Damage– Document the damage the water has done to your home. If possible, try to take photos and/or videos of the damage before you undertake any clean-up efforts.
  3. Call Insurance Company– It is important to notify your insurance company within a reasonable amount of time after the leak so that they are aware of the issue and can take action to help you.
  1. Identify Source of Damage – Try and identify the source of the leak yourself, if possible. However, if you are unable to identify the source of the leak, you may need to call a plumber.
  2. Fix Issue that Caused Leak – If unable to fix yourself, a plumber may need to be called.
  3. Remediate Other Issues – It may be necessary to call a contractor to help eliminate mold and mildew or to repair damaged drywall. However, do not make permanent repairs before you have approval from your insurance company! If you do not wait for approval, you may not be compensated for repairs.
