This will be determined by the type of damage you have and your policy coverage. Coverage will depend on the source of water damage. Was it a natural disaster, groundwater intrusion, storm damage, or the result of a burst pipe? You should call your insurance agent as quickly as possible to begin answering these questions.

Branch Environmental is experienced with the insurance claim process and will help you submit your claim properly. We are here as your advocate and work with insurance claims on a daily basis.

We deal with insurance claims on a regular basis and will assist you in submitting your claim properly and effectively. We believe that your home can be fully restored to whole, and we will be your advocate throughout the claim process.

That depends on the extent of your damage. Often we can contain the damage and quickly remove any contamination from mold or sewage overflow. If your home still has power and water, and you can safely access the living areas, we will work to let you remain in your home.

Water damage mitigation can be noisy and there will be equipment in your home for several days. Reconstruction is… well… construction and comes with saws and power tools. If your insurance company covers living or business relocation expenses, that may be a more comfortable option for you.

Every water damage and flood is unique and the times to dry them will vary. Generally, a home can be dried within 3 days. The longer your home was exposed to water, the more extensive drying will be so it is important that you call a restoration company quickly.

YES! As the owner, it is your responsibility to protect your property and minimize any further losses from the damage. That means getting it dry before the water spreads and mold starts to grow. Your insurance company will expect you to stop the source of the leak and begin to dry your home, and a formal approval is generally not required.

After your property is dry and the damage has been mitigated, we will move into the restoration phase. During this phase, your insurance agent will be more involved and approve work before it is executed.
