5 Actionable Steps To Take When Water Damage Occurs in Miamisburg, OH
SERVPRO Professionals Perform Restoration for Commercial Water Loss in Miamisburg Ohio
This past spring, the residents of Miamisburg knew that a three-day storm left many with flooded basements and newfound leaks. Our phones were non stop ringing with a total count of two hundred calls on the second day of rainfall. When heavy rain occurs, we place ourselves in what we call a storm response. Our professionals know that during a storm event, they can expect to work longer hours to help the local homeowners fight water damage.
Miamisburg Restaurant Water Damage
In the image above, you can see a couple of air movers placed in a Miamisburg restaurant. The restaurant had water damage caused by a leak in the roof that made its way through the walls. This particular drying setup was used to help dry the ceiling as quickly as possible so that the business could begin serving customers again.
When a local restaurant suffers from a water loss, we do our best to get the building dry as quickly as possible. We know that small business owners own many restaurants and that revenue is lost every day that they are closed. In this particular incident, the owner was fortunate because we received the call after business hours allowing us to do all demolition overnight. The owner was able to keep their restaurant open the whole time while we were drying the property.
Insurance covers commercial water damage.
Anytime water damage affects a Miamisburg home or business, we let our customers know that they have two options for paying for the damages.
- Pay for the damages out of pocket
- Submit a claim to their insurance company
Paying for damages out of pocket
The typical trend that we have noticed here at SERVPRO Miamisburg is that smaller water damages usually are paid for by the owner. An owner may decide to pay for the water loss out of pocket because insurance companies may increase your insurance rates after a claim.
Submitting a claim
More substantial water losses are advised to be forwarded to the owner's insurance provider. The reason that we suggest this is because the damages can cost tens of thousands of dollars. In the case of the Miamisburg restaurant, the small business could not pay for the damages without help from insurance because of the extensive damage that the ceiling had undergone.
Appliances and electronics affected by water damage
We are here to help if appliances (like a point of sales system) are affected by a water loss. We do not take care of water-damaged electronics in-house, but we have a preferred vendor to fix broken appliances. Please note that our preferred vendor can't save all appliances. In some cases, it is better to buy new appliances.
