SERVPRO Is Here To Help You Decide What To Keep, And What To Throw, After A Disaster

11/16/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO always respects the wishes of a homeowner, while keeping their safety in mind.

An overflowed washing machine caused this room in a Delafield, WI home to flood.  This picture shows an air mover placed under the carpet with the intent to "float" the carpet by blowing air under it to promote drying.  The purpose of this activity is to reduce the cost of having to tear out the carpet and eliminate the need to purchase new carpet.  At the time of this photo it was unknown if the property owner would be filing an insurance claim. 

SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County's certified water restoration technicians will make recommendations to property owners in order to help them make informed decisions.  However, SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County's technicians are not licensed agents and we cannot interpret insurance policies nor can we determine what is and is not covered.  Unless something is obviously non-salvageable, we will advise property owners to "play it safe" with their decision making.  In this example, it was recommended to try and salvage the carpet until a decision is made to file an insurance claim.

SERVPRO of SW Waukesha County will work WITH the customer so that as a team we all can make it "Like it never even happened."

If you have water or fire damage and you are not sure what to do, call SERVPRO SW Waukesha County at 262-542-0900 and we will help you make an informed decision.
