Will my insurance company pay to put my home back the way it was?
Some insurance companies are more focused on saving money than putting client’s homes back together; that’s where we come in. We are experts in negotiating with your insurance company to make sure your insurance pays every penny necessary to put your home back the way it was.
We had a fire in our house and the walls feel sticky, what is that?
Some fires, such as kitchen fires, or anything containing plastic, or resin, will create a very sticky type of soot that must be cleaned with specific products and applicators.
What happens if something in our home, like our counters or cabinets, need to be removed to get to the mold or water, how do we know our insurance will cover it?
We always make sure we have insurance company approval before performing the work.
Why does everybody make such a big deal about mold?
Most people don’t understand the severity of mold and the types of complications and problems mold can create. And not everyone is allergic to the same mold. Most people don’t realize they have a reaction to mold until it already has happened.
Why do we need to hire a Contents Packing Company to pack our belongings instead of doing it ourselves?
When there is a water, fire or mold loss in your home, homeowners have a lot on their plate and to focus on. Typically your insurance company will approve and cover the cost of an approved Contents company to pack, clean and store your belongings. Many times some of the contents in your home are damaged, so having a professional company document the damage is crucial for your insurance company to cover the loss.
