Stormwater damage from stormwater intrusion Stormwater damage? Give us a call!

The DMV area has received several showers and storms in the past two weeks, leaving behind property damage. With that, here is some helpful information that you should know should you have stormwater damage. First things first, should you have stormwater intrusion know that it is considered contaminated and you should not come in close contact with it. Stormwater is considered category 3 water, or grossly contaminated, and should be mitigated properly to avoid further damage. To avoid stormwater intrusion we recommend that homeowners check the water drain regularly. If they are clogged with leaves or debris remove it so that water has a proper pathway to channel away from the home.

Another important fact to know for preparedness purposes is your insurance deductible and insurance coverages for water damage. Have that conversation with your insurance agent, also get an idea of how the claim process works should you ever need to file an insurance claim.
