Flood Clean Up Maine

Ground water and flood clean up claims can be particularly challenging for insurance professionals and restoration contractors alike.  Under many circumstances, ground water claims are generally excluded from or limited in coverage.  If purchased, the National Flood Insurance program contains several requirements that must be met to trigger coverage and many items associated with finished basements typically are not covered.  Some carriers offer sump pump, sewer and drain malfunction endorsements with a coverage cap which can offset some of the cost of the damage.

Flood Cleaning

Flood Clean Up Maine

From a restoration perspective, addressing ground water claims quickly is paramount.  Ground water is considered a Category 3 water loss (grossly unsanitary), putting its health hazard on par with sewage backups.  Materials like carpeting and padding should be discarded if impacted by the damage.  This can drive up the cost of flood clean up. Flood water carries contaminants which will help support mold growth as well as growth of other dangerous bacteria.

While ServiceMaster uses sanitizing agents and antimicrobial formulas on all water damages, a particularly aggressive approach must be taken to eliminate any bacterial health hazards present as a result of the intrusion.  Additionally, HEPA air scrubbers may be required to minimize the risk of contamination to areas of the home or building not directly affected by the flooding. It is important to stop the spread of mold.
