TYPES OF WATER DAMAGE IN SOUTH FLORIDA

There are three major categories of water damage. They’re based on the type of water involved in the damage, and the threats that water can cause to the health and well-being of the property’s occupants.

Clean water refers to water which doesn’t contain significant waste—water from, for example, a broken water supply line or overflow from a source of potable water. This water doesn’t post an immediate health risk, but can still cause property damage, so it must be addressed quickly.

Grey water contains contaminants that are toxic to humans, or may cause infections or other illnesses. Toilet overflows, sump pump failures, and other unsanitary sources of water are the source of damage in category two cases. Contact with the water involved should be avoided.

Black water is heavily contaminated water that contains bacteria and other waste that pose a serious risk to human beings and animals. Ground surface water, river flooding, and raw sewage area all considered black water sources.

A trained expert can help you identify the category of water damage in your home and work to prevent mold and structural damage. The first step is controlling the situation. After that, you’ll need assistance with your water or flood damage insurance claim.

In colder areas of the country, the most common reason for pipe breaks or bursts is extreme cold weather, so why does Florida still suffer from pipe breaks? There are a few reasons.

WHY DO INSURANCE COMPANIES RESIST PAYING PIPE BREAK CLAIMS?

Many insurance policies do not cover pipe break claims that are caused by wear and tear on the system. Therefore, if your claim appears to be due simply to the age of pipes, you may have difficulty on your own getting appropriate reimbursement from your insurance company. This is where public adjustors become helpful.
