We just finished a job in Mamaroneck, NY. To say that this job was messy is an understatement. A sewage pipe that ran the length of the basement apartment underneath the floor had burst. It was old, decayed and in need of replacement but no one knew that until it burst. It sent sewage all over the place. The saddest part is that there is a family who must pick up what is left of their belongings and find a new home. That's why it is so important to have insurance. Whether you own your home or rent it, insurance will protect you and your wallet from disasters just like this one.
If you do have a disaster in your home, call a reputable disaster restoration company. Call your insurance agent to file your claim. Make a detailed list of the belongings that were damaged or destroyed. Pictures are a great way to document the extent of the damage. If you have to spend any money, make a separate list and save any receipts. Remember that when it comes to sewage, there will be items that can not be salvaged, depending on the severity of the damage. Sewage contamination is a serious issue and its not worth sacrificing your health to salvage a belonging.
This particular case of sewage damage was sad because the renters had not bothered to acquire insurance. The owners of the property are going to try to help them out as much as possible but having insurance would have made this disaster a lot easier to deal with. The homeowners have insurance but they were unsure about what would, and wouldn't be covered in regards to their renters. I always say this, its better to be safe than sorry.
Tips and advise from Bowerman Restoration, a top rated professional disaster clean up, remediation & damage restoration company located in Hartsdale, NY 10530, on how to undo & repair damages caused by water, floods, storms, sewage spills, mildew, mold, fires, smoke and soot to your home or place of business.
